Short biography
Margit Kaffka was born at Nagykaroly -- today's Carei, Romania -- the daughter of an impoverished Hungarian Catholic family. She won scholarships to train as a teacher and taught in a private girls' school in Miskolc and in Budapest. She also began writing poetry and novels, being inspired by her friend, the poet Endre Ady, as well as the writers' group of the periodical Hét. In 1905, she married Brúnó Fröhlich, a forestry officer, but the marriage was unhappy and ended in divorce after a few years. In 1914, she married Ervin Bauer, a biologist. Margit Kaffka is considered one of the most important Hungarian writers of her generation. Her best known works were Szinek es evek ("Colors and Years") (1912) and Allomasok ("Stations") (1917), which featured feminist themes. Margit Kaffka died at age 38 during the great worldwide influenza epidemic of 1918.
