Sándor Kisfaludy and landscape poetry

Sándor Kisfaludy was a leading figure in the language renewal movement. He took an active role in the ranks of those fighting for the legal status of the Hungarian language. At a time when German was the language of the state and Latin of the church, Kisfaludy wrote his masterpieces in Hungarian.
