Anna Édes (Anna Sweet) is a shocking story of a young maid. She is shy, quiet and hard-working, the perfect maid. She expresses restraint of all her desires, eating and sex, but what will come of this suppression? Something that will blow your mind! Nobody seems to realize that she has feelings just like everyone else in the house or probably more feelings, than the family she is surrounded by. As she is continously hurt emotionally by several people and taken advantage of physically, she commits a horrible deed. She cannot deal with it all in any other way. It is a shocking story. Kosztolányi provides us with a psychological case study in just a short story. He does a wonderful job at it. It is a must read! Hungarian writer Kosztolányi is brilliant!
