Read full description of the books El ajuste de cuentas:La circunstancia de la Hungría de mitad del siglo XX era tan fría y deprimente como los días prolongados de tormentas invernales. Tibor Déry logra narrar esas historias en ese contexto lleno de una carga social y política. El ajuste de cuentas contiene tres relatos que dan prueba de esa vida; de aquellos años en los que el compromiso político era indisociable de la actividad literaria. Tal como se refleja en “El ajuste de cuentas” y el anciano profesor que carga la severidad de las sociedades totalitarias que termina en la muerte. Dos relatos más se suman en este libro, “Amor” y “Filemón y Baucis”.
Read information about the authorTibor Déry was a Hungarian writer, born in Budapest in 1894. In his early years he was a supporter of communism, but after being excluded from the ranks of the Hungarian Communist Party in 1953 he started writing satire on the communist regime in Hungary.
Georg Lukács praised Dery as being 'the greatest depicter of human beings of our time'.
In 1918, Déry became an active party member in the liberal republic under Mihály Károlyi. Less than a year later however, Béla Kun and his Communist Party rose to power, proclaiming the Hungarian Soviet Republic and exiling Déry. He only returned to Hungary in 1934, having lived in Austria, France and Germany in the meantime. Nevertheless, during the right wing Horthy regime he was imprisoned several times, once because he translated André Gide's Retour de L'U.R.S.S.. In this period, he wrote his greatest novel, The Unfinished Sentence, a 1200-page epic story about the life of the young aristocrat Lorinc Parcen-Nagy who gets into contact with the working classes in Budapest during a period of strike.
In 1953, Déry was expelled from the Communist Party during a 'cleansing' of Hungarian literature. In 1956 he was a spokesman during the uprising, alongside Georg Lukács and Gyula Háy. In the same year, he wrote Niki: The Story of a Dog, a fable about the arbitrary restrictions on human life in Stalinist Hungary. Because of his part in the uprising, he was sentenced to prison for 9 years, but released in 1960. He died in 1977.
He translated Rudyard Kipling's Naulahka and The Lord of the Flies by William Goldinginto Hungarian.
