Info text

He was a leading member of the literary community and also made a living as a journalist and a columnist. He belonged to the “May school”, a literary group. Throughout his life he felt that he was not recognized as he deserved, a feeling reflected in his poetry, which is very skeptical and even tends to nihilism. It is also of first-class quality

and surpasses even his prose work, which is however much appreciated by readers, in particular his Tales of the Lesser Quarter.
