ORMÓDY, BERTALAN (1836–1869), Hungarian poet and journalist. One of the first Jewish poets in Hungary, Ormódy wrote patriotic verse and, unlike many Jewish authors of the time, described his fellow Jews in a realistic and sympathetic manner. His works include Magyar Romanzero ("Hungarian Romances," 1859) and Magyar hon ébredése ("The Awakening of the Hungarian Homeland," 1860).
