Hungarian literature is a fantastic and melancholy treasure trove. There are many, many fine Hungarian writers who deserve a much larger audience, including Petöfi Sandor, the poet who helped start the 1848 revolution. There's a certain strain of the imagination in Hungarian writing that goes over the Glass Mountains to the shores of the Operencia Sea.

And the shadow of the Austro-Hungarian empire looms large in the works of others like Joseph Roth and Gregor von Rezzori.
