ABOUT THIS BOOK
Nobel Prize winner Jaroslav Seifert's poetry is strongly situated within the Czech literary tradition of Poetism, which evolved into a playful, light-hearted refuge from world history while maintaining an edge of social consciousness. Called "a living symbol of the continuity in modern Czech literature" by Václav Havel, Seifert remains a towering figure in European poetry more than a decade after his death.
