Memorial exhibition, to honor a well-known Hungarian poet. The single room apartment displays reconstructed documents, as well as original manuscripts.

 

His early poetry reflects characteristic features of symbolism, later the avant-garde school. In the 1930's, under the influence of Marxism and psychoanalysis, he begins his search for an order of soul and object's homologous relation, perceiving poem as a correlation of the inner and the outer world, the latter embodying and giving form to the poet's inner experience. From here, he shifts towards psychoanalytic thought, reflecting on his own self-scrutiny. He comes to the conclusion that love is the only binding force, and since it seemed to be unattainable for him, his life brutally came to an unhappy end.
