Ludwig von Dóczi (1845–1918)

Dóczi, Ludwig von (dèk’tsē). An Hungaro-German poet and publicist; born at Ödenburg, Nov. 30, 1845; died in 1918. He translated the first part of Goethe’s ‘Faust’; produced a comedy, ‘The Kiss’ (1871), which was a striking success both at home and (in his translation) in the German theatres, and others. ‘Mixed Marriages’ was very successful. He wrote also the tragedy ‘The Last Prophet,’ and some free-flowing lyrics, besides several novels.
