A GOTHIC TALE OF JEALOUSY, REVENGE AND MURDER, INTERWEAVING ‘FEARFUL FABRICATIONS AND FEARFUL TRUTHS’
KAREL HYNEK MÁCHA was arguably the founder of modern Czech literature, and the greatest figure of literary Czech Romanticism, born in Prague in 1810. Gypsies (1835) is his most substantial prose work, and is comparable to his best-known work, the epic poem May (1836). He died at Litoměřice in 1836, after contracting an infection; in his premature death, European literary culture lost a prodigy of astonishing promise.
