Tóth Krisztina (2015)

posted May 10, 2015, 1:01 PM by Doug Rudnicki
Krisztina Tóth is one of the most highly acclaimed Hungarian poets. She is the winner of several awards, including the Graves Prize(1996), Déry Tibor Prize (1996), József Attila Prize (2000) and her poetry has been translated into many languages.

Her poems have strong connections with different Hungarian and European poetic traditions (she translates French poetry), their trademark is a subtle combination of strong visual elements, intellectual reflection and a very empathic, yet often ironic concern in everyday scenes, conflicts and people.
Krisztina Tóth lives in Budapest, where apart from writing and translating poetry, she designs and produces stained glass windows.
