Sort: Oldest first
A celebrated Hungarian poet; born at Temesvar, 1843. He is exclusively modern in subjects and treatment, but with a strain of melancholy. His "Song of the Sewing-Machine" (1884), a glorification of work and a noble eulogy on woman, and "A Grave" (his mother's), are noted. A fourth edition of his "Poetical Works" appeared in 1890; "New Poems" in 1891. Since 1890 he has been editor of The Week, a literary journal.
