Fentham Andrew - Hunglish

Visual Poetry // 40 pages

Do you speak Hunglish? Hunglish is a series of visual poems teased from the cracks between two languages. Degas and Obama take pálinka in a ruin bar as Tom Jones sings the Magyar ballads. Snakes untangle alphabets, drugged horses count to two. A poorly translated love letter from Wolverhampton to Kőbánya, a budget flight from Luton to Liszt Ferenc Ferihegy (Terminal 2), Hunglish is the gleanings from a surprise conversation in a language neither party has.

 

Contains Hungarian and English introductions from András Petőcz and George Szirtes respectively.
