  1. The essay is a scathing review of Cécile Tormay, her An Outlaw’s Diary : Revolution (1923)
    Cécile Tormay (1875/76-1937), Hungarian writer (including novels), translator, activist (right-wing, anti-semite)
    Tormay’s novels are briefly discussed by Lóránt Czigány in his chapter on Conservative Fiction in this period, in A History of Hungarian Literature, From the Earliest Times to the mid-1970’s (1986)
  2. Rosika Schwimmer (1877-1948), Hungarian-born (and later stateless) pacifist, feminist, world federalist, and women’s suffragist.

The wikipedia accounts of both Schwimmer and Tormay are fascinating.
