Sándor Petofi

$ 1.99

Hungary’s national bard, Sándor Petőfi was a pioneering revolutionary, who symbolised his homeland’s desire for freedom. He played a leading role in the literary life of the period preceding the outbreak of the Hungarian Revolution of 1848. Imbued with unique vigour, Petőfi’s verse is characterised by realism, humour and descriptive power. He introduced a direct, unpretentious style and a clear, unornamented construction adapted from local folk songs. The Delphi Poets Series offers readers the works of literature’s finest poets, with superior formatting. This volume presents Petőfi’s collected poetical works, with related illustrations and the usual Delphi bonus material. (Version 1)
