Your work

His first volumes were characterized by a tragic, rebellious tone, an expression of the absurdity of life. He saw the island’s own world created as a chance of survival. His lyric is characterized by the Protestant psalm voice. He translated Akkadian cuneiform epics and poems. From the second half of the 1970s, he created a new genre of cast. The Csörte collection (1991) wrestles with old age to shape the summation of a life.
