János Arany is the most prominent figure in Hungarian epic poetry. He lived and worked in the 19th century, and left a major oeuvre. He has the largest vocabulary of any Hungarian author. His Toldi – which is without doubt one of the greatest works of Hungarian literature – has lost nothing of its original value today. Arany translated Shakespeare’s Hamlet into Hungarian.

Toldi is set in Hungary in the second half of the 14th century in the reign of the legendary royal knight Louis the Great. The hero of the epic poem, Miklós Toldi, was a famous knight of the times, whose heroic deeds were much chronicled in verse.

Arany’s Toldi is a trilogy: Toldi, Toldi ‘s Love and Toldi’s Eve. The film rolls the three parts into one, with Toldi’s old age (Toldi’s Eve) forming the basic time frame and events from his life (mainly from Toldi, the first part of the trilogy, and to a lesser extent from Toldi’s Love) appearing as flashbacks.

Toldi has been translated into several languages, including English in 1913.
