After his father's death when Maurus Jokai was 12, his family had meant him to follow the law, his father's profession and accordingly the youth, always singularly assiduous, plodded conscientiously through the usual curriculum at Kecskemet and Pest (part of what is now Budapest), and as a full-blown advocate succeeded in winning his first case. The Academy of Arts and Sciences, founded by Szecheni, offered a prize for the best drama, and Jokai won it. He was then seventeen, for careers began early in olden times. When twenty-one his first novel, "Work Days," met with great applause; other romances quickly followed, and, as they dealt with the social and political tendencies that fanned the revolution into flame two years later, their success was instantaneous. His true representations of Hungarian life and character, his passionate love of liberty, his lofty idealism for his crushed and lethargic country, aroused a great wave of patriotism like a call to arms, and consecrated him to work with his pen for the freedom of the common people. -- From Neltje Blanchan's Introductory Sketch of the Author"
