Become a Message: Poems
by Lajos Walder
Exuberant, witty, poignant, severe, trenchant, yet lighthearted, Lajos Walder's (1913-45) poems cut to the quick and stay with us. Reading them is like reliving an era long gone and, at the same time, learning to see our own world with new eyes. Walder's message speaks to us as directly today as it did to his contemporaries: "that apart from thieves and murderers there are are also human beings."
