Margit Mikes was a Hungarian poet and short story writer. Concerned with the role of women in society, her short stories published in newspapers focused on this subject. Her first collection of poetry, Poet in the Kitchen (1938) was published in Budapest. During the Soviet occupation she was forced to remain silent. With her husband, Laszlo Kemeny, she emigrated to the USA in 1967, and her second volume of poetry, Glasscup (1972) was published in New York. Her last volume, about the homesickness of an emigrant, Under a Starless Sky (1974) was published in Munich.
