Product Overview

Half autobiographical, dramatic, and at the same time humorous, Jokai''s novel, crowned by the Hungarian Academy in 1860, is a delightful exception to the tendency which is fast making fiction a branch of science instead of art. -- Morning Post Eyes Like the Sea is an alluring book into which to dip at random... -- Academy. Eyes Like the Sea is one of those rare books that break all rules and defy criticism by justifying their irregularities. -- Guardian It is good to know too that fiction in Hungary has a master so hearty, so human, and so free at once from priggishness and naturalism. -- Saturday Review In some respects the heroine reminds us of Becky Sharp and in others of Manon Lescaut, and in feminine dexterity and sexual eccentricities is no unworthy mate for either. -- Athenaeum It is truly, as Mr. Bain remarks in his preface, a brilliant example of the now rare novel of incident and adventure... The vigor of the book is astonishing. -- World
