Michele Battiste and Barbara Ungar are poets of Hungarian ancestry, whose most recent books explore the lives of those who came before them and the legacies they left.

In UPRISING, Battiste reimagines her family’s experiences in the Hungarian uprising. 

In IMMORTAL MEDUSA, Ungar mourns her father and considers mortality in general.
