9781603125314: Manasseh, a Romance of Transylvania

In the tumultuous 1840s, a Hungarian man of intelligence and talents, Manasseh Adorjan, has just met Princess Cagliari on a train, on her way to Rome to petition the Pope for divorce. "If the princess has a woman's heart in her bosom," he declares, "she will throw her million away in return for the love of a true man!" Manasseh, a leader among Hungary's Unitarians, sees no obstacle in their religious differences. He little anticipates, however, how a violent storm of politics and passions will threaten to engulf their lives -- a storm unloosed by the forgeries and schemings of his enemies, not least among them the Prince Cagliari himself.

About the Author:

Móric Jókay de Ásva (1825 - 1904), outside Hungary also known as Maurus Jokai, was a Hungarian dramatist and novelist. On the re-establishment of the Hungarian constitution by the Austro-Hungarian Compromise of 1867, Jókai took an active part in politics. As a constant supporter of the Tisza administration, not only in parliament, where he sat continuously for more than twenty years, but also as the editor of the government organ, Hon, founded by him in 1863, he became a power in the state and though he never took office himself, frequently extricated the government from difficult places. In 1897 the king appointed him a member of the upper house. In 1899 he created a country-wide scandal by contracting a marriage with Bella Nagy, a young actress.
