Hungarian literature, the body of written works produced in the Hungarian language.
No written evidence remains of the earliest Hungarian literature, but through Hungarian folktales and folk songs elements have survived that can be traced back to pagan times.
Perhaps the most important was Sebestyén Tinódi, by temperament more historian than poet.
The poetry of his last years is imbued with a deep religious feeling; the imagery of the poems of his last creative period (the Coelie cycle of love songs as well as his religious verse) is coloured by Mannerism.
In the 17th century Hungary was still divided into three parts.
Pesti made a very readable translation of Aesop’s fables and published a Latin–Hungarian dictionary.
Sylvester published the first Hungarian grammar and, to show the adaptability of the vernacular to classical verse forms, wrote the first Hungarian poem in couplets.
