St. Peter's umbrella by Kálmán Mikszáth( Book )

6 editions published between 1962 and 1966 in English and held by 176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Novel of 1895 by the popular Hungarian writer Kálmán Mikszáth, set in the peasant villages of the Slovak highlands. From Lóránt Czigány's A History of Hungarian Literature: "Of his early novels, St. Peter's Umbrella (1895) was the most popular and perhaps the best. (Theodore Roosevelt was said to have admired the novel, and visited Mikszáth during his European trip in 1910 solely to express his admiration.) The novel illustrated well the working of Mikszáth's craft. The umbrella of the title may have been the subject of an anecdote in Upper Hungary, in which it was claimed to have a supernatural origin; St. Peter himself left it behind to protect an abandoned little girl. Thus the local peasants held the object in great veneration. The main line of the story--concerning the treasure-hunt of Gyuri Wibra, whose eccentric father put his fortune in an open bank-draft and hid it in the handle of an umbrella--is welded to the anecdote concerning the 'celestial umbrella.' The complications arising out of the search for the umbrella provide Mikszáth with an opportunity to work on two different levels--devising an exciting hunt for the inheritance, and at the same time observing the significance, in terms of mass-psychology, of a seemingly wortheless object."
