Fay, Andras (1786-1864), a Hungarian author and poet, was born at Kohany, and was educated to the law. Ill-health compelled him to quit that profession and take to literature. In 1820 he published a collection of Fables, which gained for him the name of the "Hungarian AEsop." He had already published a Nosegay in 1807 and a Fresh Noseyay in 1818, and among his works are many other tales, plays, and romances. In 1835 he represented Pesth in the Hungarian Diet. He is the founder of the Hungarian National Theatre.
