Denes B. Kiss (Krusovszky)


Krusovsky has published over 100 poems in Hungarian literary journals and anthologies and his work has also been published in Bulgarian, Croatian, English, Greek, Serbian and Spanish.He is also a translator of major 20th century poets including John Ashbury, Leonard Cohen, Louise Glück and Donald Hall. Krusovsky’s recent work, which explores the life of Hart Crane and early performances of Chris Burden, questions various aspects of the body—in the foreground, its capacity to endure and visualize, and in the background, to represent thoughts and feelings. He wanted to take part in readings, lectures and workshops and learn more about literary translation and book publishing in the US.
