In analysing some of Sándor Márai’s articles, which were written mostly during the first stage of his long career (1920–1933), the paper focuses on the way the author describes strangers and foreigners in different circumstances and from different points of view in post-war Europe who, among others, also suffered from political murders and a financial crisis. I address the question of what it means to be a foreigner in Germany, France or Hungary, according to him. What does it mean to be a métèque? What does it mean to be Hungarians or Russians and live in exile?

Abstract

In analysing some of Sándor Márai’s articles, which were written mostly during the first stage of his long career (1920–1933), the paper focuses on the way the author describes strangers and foreigners in different circumstances and from different points of view in post-war Europe who, among others, also suffered from political murders and a financial crisis. I address the question of what it means to be a foreigner in Germany, France or Hungary, according to him. What does it mean to be a métèque? What does it mean to be Hungarians or Russians and live in exile?
