Here is a selection of sixty poems written by one of Hungary's greatest living poets and its leading writer in exile. They were written by George Faludy in Hungarian between 1937 and 1980 and are being published here for the first time in smooth-running English translations by a host of Canadian writers (plus one Anglo-Hungarian, Arthur Koestler). These poems, which document life in Europe and North America during and after the Second World War, were composed in Budapest, Vienna, Paris, Casablanca, Marrakesh, Recsk, New York, London, Malta, Valencia, Philadelphia, Montclair, Charlotte, Tangier, and Toronto (where the poet has lived since 1967, as a Canadian citizen since 1976). The collection concludes with Faludy's celebrated 1978 Convocation Address at the University of Toronto. Learn This Poem of Mine by Heart is Faludy's first book in English since the publication of East and West (1978), also edited by John Robert Colombo.
