The present paper is devoted to the centenary of the remarkably popular poet and outstanding master of the Russian language, Alexander Tvardovsky (1910–1971). His artistic personality was marked by a peculiar double bind that caused him much anguish and risky conflicts despite all the honours he had received in his life. On the one hand, he cherished the idea of humanitarian communism compatible with democracy and the dignity of the individual; on the other, he was profoundly devoted to truth, and definitely insisted on his right and poetic duty to voice it. During the course of time he became more and more conscious of the illusory nature of his ideals. In his longer poems he represented the great turns in the life of Soviet society. Tvardovsky developed a flexible and terse style based on vigorous everyday popular speech; in post-war years this style has become loftier and more philosophic following (but not imitating) the tradition of Pushkin. Tvardovsky’s activities as the chief editor of the journal Novy Mir opened a significant turn in the literary life of his country promising the approach of an epoch of enlightenment and free speech.
September 1929, when the ministry of culture established the department
of ethnology at the University of Szeged, the first of its kind in Hungary, was
an important milestone in the history of ethnology as a discipline in Hungary.
The later professor and head of the department was Sándor Bálint (1904-1980),
outstanding researcher on the cultural history and folk life of Szeged and
ethnology of religion in Hungary. In the 2004/2005 academic year the University
of Szeged, the museum and the municipality commemorated the 75th anniversary of
the establishment of the department of ethnology and the centenary of the birth
of Sándor Bálint with an exhibition, the publication of books, anniversary
conferences and film screenings. The anniversary events were held with the
participation of Hungarian and international representatives of our discipline
and the related fields.
