Short Description

"Kortárs" was the most important literary journal in Hungary until 1989. Existing in a monopol state, it published the most significant literary works of that period. After 1990 it went through an important change, both in outlook and content. Besides fiction it also publishes essays, independent studies and literary criticism, with a view towards the Arts and Humanities (History, Folklore, Language, Philosophy, etc.) Although "Kortárs" is open to rather liberal literary or artistic experiments, it mainly represents traditional ethics and values. Still among the highest selling literary monthlies in Hungary, it is also well-known among Hungarians abroad. "Kortárs" has been published by the Hungarian Writers Association until December 2005. From January 2005 the journal is published by Kortárs Folyóirat Kiadói Kft.
