Farkas, Endre

EndreFarkas-new-colour.jpgENDRE FARKAS was born in Hungary and is a child of Holocaust survivors. He and his parents escaped during the 1956 uprising and settled in Montreal. His work has always had a political consciousness and has always pushed the boundaries of poetry. Since the 1970s, he has collaborated with dancers, musicians and actors to move the poem from page to stage. Still at the forefront of the Quebec English language literary scene — writing, editing, publishing and performing — Farkas is the author of eleven books, including Quotidian Fever: New and Selected Poems (1974-2007). He is the two-time regional winner of the CBC Poetry “Face Off” Competition. His poetry book, Blood is Blood, with Carolyn Marie Souaid, was a winner in the ZEBRA international poetry festival for “Best Film For Tolerance”. Never, Again is the title of Endre’s new novel.
