Kormos István (1923—1977) Poems for Children

István Kormos (1923-77) was a talented young peasant poet who came forward as a result of the social revolution following World War II. After a promising first volume (We Are Staggering, 1947), noted for its freshness, Kormos, overcome by a sense of futility, eventually fell silent. His reappearance on the literary scene with Poor Yorick (1971) made a minor stir; although Kormos had written fine children’s verse, his later poetry was an unexpected breakthrough. His poems written for children met with warm reception. Translated into Hungarian works by Chaucer, Burns, Pushkin, Moliére and André Frénaud as well as Russian folk poems.
