Diary and novel in the works of Miklós Szentkuthy

The vast oeuvre and special writing technique of Miklós Szentkuthy easily captivates the unsuspecting reader. In the endless stream of thoughts, pictures, and experiences, it is the longing for completeness that always manifests: it is for him a question of scientific worldview rather than that of genre, even if the road there leads through journals, testimonies, analysis, and confessions: the works. “Prayer novel” and “novel prayer”: a credo manifesting in thousands of masks, costumes, scenery, and human ideals in our harsh, crisis-ridden times.
