REICHARD, PIROSKA (1884–1943), Hungarian poet, critic, and translator. Piroska Reichard's verses, which are outstanding for their great delicacy and were collected in Az életen kivül ("Out of Life," 1911) and Oszi üdvözlet ("Autumn Greetings," 1922), reflect the fate of the lonely woman. She was a noted translator from English and French as well as being an important essayist and critic of the Nyugat school. She committed suicide during the Nazi era.
