A Journey Into History

Essays on Hungarian Literature


Moses M. Nagy

Contents: Hungarian literature and the West - history as central interest of this literature: historical novel as a great genre; a poetry rich in music and patriotism with the anxiety of being; a drama born under the fascination of Western playwrights. This book does not intend to be a descriptive history of Hungarian literature; it hopes to sensitize the reader to those values which make it unique: its musical quality, «rhapsodic spirit,» its preoccupation with history, the sincere love of the writer for his country, and the agglutinative nature and rich vocabulary of the language. The essays represent standards of original research papers.
