„...there is only humanity, and it is a greater crime than murder to be inhuman, to be rude, to be arrogant, for which not even a knife is enough retribution, whereas the greatest virtue is a thoughtful, pure-heartedness that goes to the heart of the matter, because there is nothing more, nothing more radical, that we can do here on earth” – wrote Dezső Kosztolányi three years after the creation of his novel Édes Anna, in 1929. How about now? In 2023? What does humanity mean today and what is inhumanity? What is the greatest sin today and what is the greatest virtue? Are these even relevant questions today, or is the world already in a completely different place? Reflect on all this based on a novel that is almost a century old!
