Csaba Lászlóffy

CSABA LÁSZLÓFFY (1939–2015), prolific Transylvanian Hungarian poet, prose writer, playwright, essayist, translator, member of the Hungarian Artists’ Academy and recipient of the prestigious Attila József Prize of Hungary, lived in Kolozsvár (old Hungarian city now in Romania). He worked as editor of several cultural and literary journals, and published some 50 volumes of his own work. With a deep sensitivity for the tragedies and absurdities of Hungarian and human history, a moral passion and a grotesque and ironic vision of life, he incessantly experimented to better express the angst and unhomeliness of human existence. He layered, crossed and blended different genres, styles, historical times, figures and events, and highlighted the grotesque and absurd not only in his absurdist plays but also in his poetry and poetic prose.
