Péter Esterházy, the renowned Hungarian writer who passed away on 14 July, was “an aristocrat not only in blood but also in soul and spirit”, Archabbot of Pannonhalma Archabbey Asztrik Várszegi said at the author’s funeral service at the Esterházy noble family’s traditional burial place of Ganna in Western Hungary on Tuesday.
The writer, who died at the age of 66 after a long battle with illness, was a “shining star arching on its own orbit who “cannot and should not be captured”, the religious leader said at the Kossuth Prize-winning author’s Latin-language funeral service at the small village in Veszprém county, western Hungary.
