Dezső Kosztolányi (Hungarian pronunciation: [ˈdɛʒøː ˈkostolaːɲi]; March 29, 1885 – November 3, 1936) was a Hungarian poet and prose-writer.
Kosztolányi was born in Szabadka, Austria-Hungary (today Subotica, Serbia) in 1885. In 1908, Kosztolányi replaced the poet Endre Ady, who had left for Paris, as a reporter for a Budapest daily. In 1910, his first volume of poems, The Complaints of a Poor Little Child, brought nationwide success and marked the beginning of a prolific period in which he published a book nearly every year. He met the actress Ilona Harmos in the winter of 1910; they got married on 8 May 1913. Kosztolányi died in 1936 from cancer of the palate.
