BRÓDY, LÁSZLÓ (1897– ), Hungarian poet. Brody's verse, the first collected volume of which, Bohóc ("Clown"), appeared in 1921, deals with urban poverty and often betrays nostalgia for traditional Jewish life. His works include the verse comedy, Bábszinház ("Puppet Theater," 1926), and Esztendők ("Years," 1945), poems written during the Nazi era. Some of his verse has been translated into Hebrew and Yiddish.
