Karel Čapek : life and work by Ivan Klíma( Book )

45 editions published between 1962 and 2003 in 5 languages and held by 588 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Karel Capek - Life and Work is a look at the important pre-war Czech author of such works as R.U.R., War with the Newts, Three Novels, and Tales from Two Pockets, through the eyes of one of the most important post-war Czech writers, Ivan Klima. It is a personal essay from a writer's more than a critic's point of view. And although originally written in Czech, the book was commissioned by Catbird Press and was therefore written with foreign readers in mind; in other words, no prior knowledge of Capek's writings or his milieu is required."--Jacket

Milostné rozhovory by Ivan Klíma( Book )

28 editions published between 1995 and 2005 in 6 languages and held by 105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Der vielseitige Schriftsteller, Publizist und ehemalige Dissident Ivan Klíma (geboren 1931) ist dem deutschen Publikum bereits bestens bekannt (zuletzt BA 7/95; 6/97; 8/97), er gehört zu den bedeutendsten und meist übersetzten tschechischen Autoren. Im vorliegenden Erzählungsband widmet er sich einmal mehr dem Thema Liebe in verschiedenen Variationen oder besser: Lebenssituationen - heimliche und verbotene Liebe, neu entflammte und erkaltende, Liebe, die einengt und solche, die Freiheit lässt. Vor allem aber sind es Gespräche "über Liebe und Tod", die man in einem Zug durchliest, gefesselt von den verschiedenen Schicksalen, von denen Klíma äußerst teilnahmsvoll und dabei unsentimental erzählt. Es sind alltägliche Schicksale, gewöhnliche Menschen, die er in den Mittelpunkt stellt - und uns damit so nachdenklich stimmt. Die insgesamt 15 Geschichten scheinen wie aus dem Leben gegriffen mit ihren teils rat-, teils rücksichtslosen Menschen, die eigentlich immer nur nach der Liebe suchen. Eine sehr einnehmende Lektüre, wärmstens auch kleinen Bibliotheken empfohlen
Loď, jménem Naděje by Ivan Klíma( Book )

19 editions published between 1969 and 1998 in Czech and held by 74 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dvě prózy. V novele Porota (kterou čtenář měl možnost poznat v rozhlasové adaptaci, odměněné v soutěži Československého rozhlasu v r. 1966, avšak vysílané až r. 1968) se na pozadí otřesné justiční praxe padesátých let očekáváodšestičlenné poroty vyjádření o vině člověka již odsouzeného a popraveného. O románě Loď jménem Naděje autor přiznává, že jeho námět ho napadl na lodi, když se v jedné situaci mohl domnívat, že kapitán chce cestující zahubit,a dodává: "Ta myšlenka o kapitánovi a cestujících vydaných mu na milost a nemilost mě zaujala. Nakonec . . . mi z toho vyšlo něco jiného: příběh o falešném vůdci, snad trochu příšerná zkazka o tajuplné lodi, která už dávnoztratila smysl svéplavby, - i jakási velmi volná parafráze spasitelské legendy."
