Beskrivelse: The word 'magyarzni' (pronounced MAUDE-yar-az-knee) means 'to explain' in Hungarian, but translates literally as 'make it Hungarian.' This faux-Hungarian language primer, written in direct address, invites readers to experience what it's like to be 'made Hungarian' by growing up with a parent who immigrated to North America as a refugee. In forty-five folk-art visual poems each paired with a written poem, Hajnoczky reveals the beauty and tension of first-generation cultural identity.Helen Hajnoczky's first book of poetry was Poets and Killers: A Life in Advertising (Snare, 2010). Her work has appeared in poetry anthologies, magazines, and chapbooks. She lives in Montreal, Quebec.
