About the Author:

Mikszáth Kálmán magyar író, újságíró, országgyűlési képviselő és a Magyar Tudományos Akadémia tagja. Jókai Mór mellett a kor egyik leghíresebb írója, és humoristája lett. Pályája nehezen indult, mert stílusa elütött a kor más írójainak stílusaitól.

Mikszáth was born in Szklabonya (also known as Sklabiná or Szlabonya), Upper Hungary (now Sklabiná, Slovakia) into a family of the lesser nobility. He studied Law at the University of Budapest from 1866 to 1869, although he did not apply for any exam, and became involved in journalism, writing for many Hungarian newspapers including the Pesti Hírlap [hu].

Mikszáth's early short stories were based on the lives of peasants and artisans and had little appeal at the time. However, they demonstrated his skill in crafting humorous anecdotes, which would be developed in his later, more popular works. Many of his novels contained social commentary and satire, and towards the end of his life they became increasingly critical of the aristocracy and the burden he believed the latter placed on Hungarian society.

 

Hungarian Summary:

Mondhatnánk, klasszikus művek ám ez a jelző díszes vitrinbe való könyveket, nem eleven, ma is izzó olvasmányélményeket sejtetne. Márpedig válogatásunk ilyen élményeket kínál: tizennégy szerző huszonhat regényben a múltunkról úgy mesél, mint előéletünk konfliktusairól, országos vagy magánemberi tragédiáiról és gyönyörűségeiről, keserves és mulatságos pillanatairól. Képzeletük, művészetük az egekbe emel, megfigyeléseik a földön tartanak. Köteteik zsebbe, táskába, hátizsákba való útitársak, amíg csak magyarul gondolkodunk, szenvedünk és szeretünk.

 

English Summary:

St. Peter's Umbrella (Hungarian:Szent Péter esernyője) is an 1895 novel by the Hungarian writer Kálmán Mikszáth.

The story is set is the rural region to the north of Hungary, now Slovakia, where Mikszáth was born. This is the territory of the Palóc people, celebrated by Mikszáth in his writings, especially the short stories A Jó Palócok (translated as The Good People of Palocz). The characters in the story are small town middle class and the local peasantry.

The novel is in five sections, the first establishing the legend of 'St Peter's umbrella'. The key character is the young priest, János Bélyi, who has just arrived in his first parish, Glogova, so poor that the living barely supports a priest. Within a couple of weeks, a neighbour from his home village appears. He brings news of the priest's widowed mother's death, and deposits on him his two-year-old sister. How, János wonders, can he care for his sister when the parish hardly provides enough for him? He goes to the church to seek guidance, leaving little Veronica asleep in her basket on the verandah. A sudden storm with torrential rain interrupts his prayers and he hurries back to the sleeping child, only to find her perfectly dry, her basket covered by a ragged red umbrella. The villagers having seen an old Jew in the neighbourhood, with the umbrella, decide that he closely resembled the picture of Saint Peter in their church: they are convinced that the saint has visited their village. The red umbrella becomes a miraculous object of veneration, its widespread fame bringing visitors and prosperity to the village, and to its priest.
