Zsuzsa Takács’s poetry volumes show consecutively building continuity. The Rejtjeles tábori lap (Ciphered Camp Sheet), her 1987 volume of adolescent poems, belongs to that process, although it remained without critical attention for a long time, and even her monographer considers it to be only a side-line. The poet herself elevates it to be
... among the chapters of volumes in her biography. The opening of the poems start out from an adolescent mind setting that was born among the memory poems of the previous volume, and then it develops an independent voice in dramatic life and thought situations. The basis of the conflict all through Takács’s poetry is coming-of-age in which the “abyss of adolescence” opens on the alienated existence. The teenage girl drama gives voice to the radical realization of “being different” and then through the everyday situations, connections, ideas and thoughts of the lyrical I it leads to the realization of radical desire for love.
