The rejection of poems by Tandori, Dezső, red out by the poet, audio recording, 1964, originally on tape, digitized in 2012
In Dr. Végh’s tiny room, in the presence of others, the poet Dezső Tandori reads aloud the letter sent by the Magvető Publishing House telling him that his poems are not good enough to publish. The text is presented in its entirety, without any change. One of the interesting aspects of the recording lays in the diction: on the basis of the low-key serenity of the cadence and the sometimes audible background noises, the listener can deduce the atmosphere and the reception.
