About The Event
First published in 1853, this collection of poems, along with Mácha’s Máj and Němcová’s Babička, are the best loved and most widely read 19th century Czech classics.
Susan will be reading from her translation of Erben's masterpiece, accompanied by Kamila Drtilová reading in Czech. Afterwards there will be a discussion on Kytice's wider cultural impact. Jantar will launch its new hardback 'Special Czech Edition' of Kytice featuring Susan's translation, that evening. The 'Special Czech Edition' has a limited print run of 500 copies.
