Biography

Ferenc Kölcsey, 1790–1838, Hungarian writer and orator. A student of the Enlightenment, he aided his friend Krasiski in a reform of the Hungarian language, investigated Hungarian literary history, and introduced the critical essay. As a member of parliament (1832–36), he spoke eloquently to urge freedom for the serfs. His prose and poetry are somber and elaborately classical in style; they reveal a strong moral sense. Kölcsey wrote the Hungarian national hymn (1823).
