FUST (Fuerst ), MILÁN (1888–1967), author and poet. A descendant of the court Jew Jacob Bassevi von *Treuenberg, Füst wrote verse remarkable for its ghostly atmosphere and preoccupation with death. He also wrote novels – notably A feleségem története ("The Story of My Wife," 1942) and Látomás és indulat a müvészetben ("Vision and Impulse in Art," 1948) – and various plays and short stories.
