Krúdy, Gyula

 

Born Oct. 21, 1878, in Nyíregyháza; died May 12, 1933, in Budapest. Hungarian writer.

Krúdy was the son of a lawyer. His short stories The Youth of Sindbad (1911), The Red Stagecoach (1914), Seven Owls (1922), and The Elegant Life of Kálman Rezéda (1933) depicted the almost spectral monotonous life of the provinces and the decline of the Hungarian gentry. Many of Krúdy’s articles and essays evince his sympathy for the Hungarian proletarian revolution of 1919.
