Zsolt Beöthy (1848–1922)

Beöthy, Zoltán (bė’tē). A Hungarian poet and critic; born at Komorn, Sept. 4, 1848; died in 1922. After 1882 he was professor of æsthetics at the University of Budapest. His numerous tales show unusual talent for psychological delineation; among them are: ‘Judge Martin’ (1872); ‘The Nameless Ones’ (1875); ‘Kálozdi Béla’ (1875), a novel. His dramaturgic studies and criticisms appeared under the title ‘Playwrights and Actors’ (1881). He also wrote an excellent history of Hungarian literature (6th ed. 1891).
