Letter: Daniel Weissbort's Poetry of Survival


Sasha Dugdale rightly pinpoints Daniel Weissbort's talents as an anthologist. Among the best must be The Poetry of Survival (Anvil Press, 1991). Sub-titled Post-War Poets of Central and Eastern Europe, and with a succinct introduction that touches on the whole business of translating, this will have been for many their first encounter with the poets of that region and generation. Arriving with a caseful of the anthology (hot from the press) at the Cheltenham festival of literature, Danny launched it there with characteristic modesty. It remains a wonderful introductory guide.
