Come and enjoy an afternoon of deeply moving, poignant and hauntingly beautiful poetry as we watch and listen together in the Museum to the virtual presentation from Hungary by Dr. Judit Havas.
This hour-long performance will be in Hungarian and will include a medley of poetry and literature readings from lesser known poets of the 1950s.
The focus will be on poets whose lives and poetic works were deeply influenced by the turbulent and repressive times in Hungary, and include Bertók László, Illyés Gyula, and Csoóri Sándor.
The lecture will be interactive as participants in attendance in the Museum will have the opportunity to virtually comment and ask questions of Dr. Havas at the end of the lecture.
Dr. Judit Havas teaches Hungarian literature, public speaking and elocution at the Department of Literary Scholarship at the Eötvös Loránd University.
This presentation will be live at the Museum and not available via Zoom. We invite participants to join us at the Museum for this interactive presentation.
(The program will be recorded and will be made available on our website after the presentation).
The program will be held at the Hungarian Heritage Museum, in The Galleria, Lower Level, Downtown Cleveland, with coffee and refreshments following each presentation.
On Saturdays when the Museum has a program, the Museum is open from 1-4 pm; $5 parking is available in the Galleria underground garage.
Suggested donation: $10 for adults and $5 for students.
A viszontlátásra!!!! See you soon!!
