1. Amedeo Di Francesco: Hungarian literary mythography In Hungary the myth rarely tells holy stories but it invites to the knowledge of an historical adventure which is really proud of his own peculiarity. Here are only some examples. The event of Angevins of Naples and Hungary interested almost every European literature: but what is here studied is the way it has been received by the Hungarian literature, in particular by the dramatist Imre Madàch who rebuilds and makes us live again the smallness of the human condition. The book also analyses some important Hungarian literary texts which have been built around the founding stereotypes of royalty (Sigismund of Luxemburg, Mattia Corvino, IstvànBàthory), holiness (Edvige, Giacomo della Marca) and “virtus” (JànosHunyadi, Scanderbeg, MiklòsZrinyi) in a literary geography moving from Buda to Naples, keeping together Alba Iulia, Cracow and Wien, from Albania to Transylvania, getting in relationship the Mediterranean Sea and the Carpathian Mountains. But myths and archetypes, among nostalgia and regrets, sometimes also lead to an ancient Eurasia which is lived through sweet and sad fancies telling how difficult the position between East and West has always been for the Hungarian nation.

Abstract

1. Amedeo Di Francesco: Hungarian literary mythography In Hungary the myth rarely tells holy stories but it invites to the knowledge of an historical adventure which is really proud of his own peculiarity. Here are only some examples. The event of Angevins of Naples and Hungary interested almost every European literature: but what is here studied is the way it has been received by the Hungarian literature, in particular by the dramatist Imre Madàch who rebuilds and makes us live again the smallness of the human condition. The book also analyses some important Hungarian literary texts which have been built around the founding stereotypes of royalty (Sigismund of Luxemburg, Mattia Corvino, IstvànBàthory), holiness (Edvige, Giacomo della Marca) and “virtus” (JànosHunyadi, Scanderbeg, MiklòsZrinyi) in a literary geography moving from Buda to Naples, keeping together Alba Iulia, Cracow and Wien, from Albania to Transylvania, getting in relationship the Mediterranean Sea and the Carpathian Mountains. But myths and archetypes, among nostalgia and regrets, sometimes also lead to an ancient Eurasia which is lived through sweet and sad fancies telling how difficult the position between East and West has always been for the Hungarian nation.
