Other Literary Forms
Endre Ady was a journalist who wrote numerous articles, reports, reviews, criticisms, essays, and short stories for the press. These were collected after his death under the titles Az új Hellász (1920; new Hellas), Levelek Párizsból (1924; letters from Paris), Párizsi noteszkönyve (1924; Paris notebook), and Ha hív az aczélhegyű ördög (1927; if the steel-tipped devil calls). In his lifetime, Ady published Vallomások és tanúlmányok (1911; confessions and studies), containing his important prose writings, both political and literary. Some of these writings are available in English translation in The Explosive Country: A Selection of Articles and Studies, 1898-1916 (1977). His collections of short stories combine subjective, personal confession with a depiction of early twentieth century Hungary. They are Sápadt emberek és történetek (1907; pale men and stories), Így is történhetik (1910; it can happen thus also), A tízmilliós Kleopátra és egyébb történetek (1910; Cleopatra of the ten millions and other stories), Új csapáson (1913; on a new track), and Muskétás tanár úr (1913; Professor Muskétás). His letters have been published in Ady Endre válogatott levelei (1956; selected letters of Endre Ady), with an introduction by Béla György.
