The exhibition features 19 large-format color posters, with content in both English and Vietnamese, outlining the career and remarkable contributions to the world culture of the Hungarian poet Sándor Petőfi (1823 – 2023).
“I believe that the exhibition will be a valuable opportunity for the Vietnamese people and international visitors to Hanoi to learn about the life and career of the greatest Hungarian revolutionary poet and literary figure: Sándor Petőfi,” said Nguyen Xuan Dung, Acting Director, the National Library of Vietnam.
Sándor was a renowned poet and great writer and was one of the key figures of the Hungarian Revolution of 1848. He is the author of the Nemzeti dal (National Song), which is said to have inspired the revolution in the Kingdom of Hungary that grew into a war for independence from the Austrian Empire. It is most likely that he died in the Battle of Segesvár, one of the war’s last battles.

Sándor’s poetic legacy includes 800 poems, three epics, and two poetic stories.
His poetry was influenced by folk tales and stories. One of his most famous works is a twenty-seven-chapter poem, János Vitéz, “John the Brave”, written in 1845. It is a fairy tale about Kukorica Jancsi and his love for Iluska.
Sándor’s life, political activity, romantic marriage, and mysterious death contributed to his fascination for generations of Hungarians.
The organizers of the event hope that the exhibition will be a good opportunity for the public, the readers of the National Library, and international visitors to learn more about the life of the romantic poetic symbol of Hungary and his contributions to the Hungarian Revolution of the 19th century.
