In his analysis of the recent Karády renaissance, in “Mata Hari or the Body of the Nation? Interpretations of Katalin Karády” David S. Frey dissects the multitude of symbolic meanings that were cast upon the popular screen star of interwar Hungary. Frey is particularly interested in how the interwar discourses of gender and nation played out in the numerous images that Karády embodied in the eyes of many of her contemporaries and how these images have been re-evaluated and re-contextualized in post-communist Hungary.
