Attila József - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (357 words)
Attila József (April 11, 1905 - December 3, 1937) was one of the most outstanding Hungarian poets in the 20th century.
Thus the children were cared for by the National Child Protection League and foster parents in the country town of Öcsöd, where he worked on a farm.
It was typical of the conditions there that his foster father said "There is no such name as 'Attila'", and therefore called him 'Pista'.
Attila József (82 words)
The son of a simple soapmaker who deserted his family, Jozsef was brought up in harsh poverty by his mother, a washerwoman.
He had an almost schizophrenic drive to alter the existing order of things, and his seven volumes of poetry reflect a profound sympathy for the exploited Hungarian working classes.
Jozsef committed suicide, having been troubled by mental illness throughout his life.
