Poet, literary translator
Gabor G. Gyukics, born 1958, is an Hungarian-American poet and literary translator. He has five books of original poetry -- four in Hungarian and one bilingual (Last Smile) -- and nine books of translations, including A Transparent Lion, selected poetry of Attila József. He writes in English (his second language) and in Hungarian. Gabor lived in Holland for two years before moving to the U.S., where he lived between 1988 and 2002. He presently resides in Budapest, and is working on translating the poetic works of North American Indigenous poets for an anthology to be published in Hungarian. Gabor's latest book of poetry was published in Hungarian in October 2011 by L'Harmattan Press in Budapest.
