On the passing of poet György [George] Faludy - September 22, 1910 - September 1, 2006

There was a program on CBC television called Program X in the early '70s. I remember watching a performance of one George Faludy's poems. I think the poem was called Ava Luna but I can find no reference to it online.

It starts with the gladiator oath before a fight in the arena: "We who are about to die, salute you." At the time, I was impressed by the visual presentation work of his work.

Anyone with information about his poem or that program is welcome to contact me.
