Györgi Petri (1943-2000), born to a multi-ethnic family in Budapest, was a leading
Hungarian poet, writer, and translator. Petri studied Hungarian literature and
philosophy at Eötvös Loránd University. From 1975 to 1988 his works were
banned; his poetry appeared only in Samizdat and abroad. Between 1981 and 1989
he was the editor of the Samizdat newspaper Beszélő. After the regime change, he
became a member of the editorial board of the cultural monthly Holmi. He was one of
the founders of the Digital Literary Academy.
