Bridge Passages, much of which was written in Budapest during the momentous December of 1989, deals mainly with the present, and looks at the lives that are lived in private flats and public streets, and of the dissolving of individuals in large events. The title set of poems forms an intermittent diary which responds to the changing moods of Hungary as it was caught up in the tide sweeping across Eastern Europe, while other sections recall his English childhood, and contain translations of works by leading Hungarian poets Ott o Orb an and Agnes Nemes Nagy.
