László Lator’s poetry displays a Rilkean density and intensity. His concerns are a combination of the alchemical and the existential. An obsession with middle Europe’s tragic history and the fate of the individual framed within is related often with a Judeo-Christian symbology and a unique mercurial phrasing.
