One of the most colourful per­sonalities of the Hungarian literary scene between the two world wars, Aron Tamási (b. 1897) remains one of the outstanding contemporary writers. In his novels and short stories he portrays the people of his native Transylvania, the struggles of the poor against their masters and against nature, the native genius and strangely shrewd and droll thinking of the Székelys, the Hungarians of Transylvania. Abel Alone is the first part of his best known work, the Abel trilogy, and at the same time one of the most successful novels in modern Hungarian literature. It takes the reader into that strange and unique Székely-Hungarian world whose entry on to the stage of art was heralded by the music of Béla Bartók and Zoltán Kodály.

The hero is a sixteen-year-old lad who lives in the forests, alone with his fears and cun­ning. Need teaches him to use caution and guile; nature to play tricks, to meditate and to reflect on the life of the poor. Although he does not live by the ten commandments, his character is one of deep natural nobility. In the background of the delectably sparkling story there are other motifs-things that have to do with the rela­tionship of man and solitude, virgin nature and civilization, nature and religion, man and beast.
