Published by: Jelenkor Alapítvány
Keywords: Péter Nádas; contemporary Hungarian literature; re-reading of Nádas’s novelette The end of a saga

Summary/Abstract: “The re-reading finds a text that is troubled, fractured, desperately asking questions replacing the old work (which is even, refined, and offering answers).” Péter Nádas is one of the most important, internationally renowned authors of contemporary Hungarian literature. The journal Jelenkor published a special issue for his sixtieth birthday. The present analysis gives a re-reading of Nádas’s novelette, the now classic The end of a saga.
