Hungarian literary history tends to forget about women writers, they are not included in school curricula, even if they had been well known and highly appreciated in their own times. Anna Menyhért’s book Női irodalmi hagyomány (Women’s Literary Tradition) was the first to explore the reasons for the amnesia. Her talk will introduce the book, participants can read and discuss Hungarian women poets in translations by George Szirtes made specially for the occassion.
