Rambling on : an apprentice's guide to gift of the gab : short stories by Bohumil Hrabal( )

5 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 986 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bohumil Hrabal (1914-97) has been ranked with Jaroslav Ha¿Łek, Karel Capek, and Milan Kundera as among the greatest twentieth-century Czech writers. Hrabal's fiction blends tragedy with humor and explores the anguish of intellectuals and ordinary people alike from a slightly surreal perspective. Rambling On is a collection of stories set in Hrabal's Kersko that depicts the hilariously absurd atmosphere of a tiny cottage community in the heart of a forest in the middle of totalitarian Czechoslovakia. Several of these stories were rejected by the Communist censors during the 1970s; this first Eng
Behind the lines : Bugulma and other stories by Jaroslav Hašek( )

5 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 914 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jaroslav Hašek is a Czech writer most famous for his widely read if incomplete novel The Good Soldier Schweik, a series of absurdist vignettes about a recalcitrant WWI soldier. Hašek was remarkably prolific, and he wrote hundreds of short stories that all display both his extraordinary gift for satire and his profound distrust of authority. Here, in a new English translation, are a series of short stories based on Hašek's experiences as a Red Commissar in the Russian Civil War and his return to Czechoslovakia. First published in the Prague Tribune, these nine stories are considered to be some
Summer of caprice by Vladislav Vančura( )

7 editions published between 2006 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 743 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Preklad do anglictiny Mark CornerVancurovo Rozmarné léto bývá považováno za nepreložitelné. Souvisí to jak s jazykovými prostredky, jimiž vytvárí autor styl svého vyprávení, tak s vývojem kontextu, v nemž se kniha již osmdesát let pohybuje. Z tohoto hlediska je naše vydání experimentem, a to jak díky prekladu Marka Cornera, který je, ostatne jako každý preklad, do jisté míry i interpretací textu -, tak díky svébytným ilustracím Jirího Gruse a typografii Zdenka Zieglera. Ovšem experimentem smerujícím k porozumení ceské náture, humoru a pohledu na svet
Of mice and Mooshaber by Ladislav Fuks( )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 736 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ladislav Fuks is an outstanding Czech writer, whose works primarily consist of psychological fiction focusing on the themes of anxiety and life in totalitarian systems. He is well known for his short fiction treating the theme of holocaust, specifically for his works The Cremator (Spalovac mrtvol), which was filmed in 1969, and Mr. Theodore Mundstock (Pan Theodor Mundstock). Natalia Mooshabr's Mice (Myši Natálie Mooshabrové) is his first novel, in which he abandoned the theme of the holocaust moving on to the horror genre. The story takes place in an unspecified country whose ruler was overthr
Wir fünf und Jumbo : Roman by Karel Polaček( )

2 editions published in 2014 in Undetermined and English and held by 731 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Slavný ceský humoristický román o dobrodružstvích peti chlapcu z malého ceského mestecka je psán formou detského deníku kupeckého synka Petra Bajzy. Uprostred druhé svetové války, v nejtežším období svého života - pred transportem do Osvetimi v roce 1944 - ceský spisovatel Karel Polácek (1892-1944) prostrednictvím detského vypravece vzpomíná na štastné mládí. Pred ctenárem se objevuje svet videný ocima detí, zažívá jejich každodenní príhody a strety s nepochopitelným svetem dospelých i boje se sousedními detskými partami. Vdecným zdrojem humoru je zejména puvabný klukovský jazyk. Po více než 6
The Pied Piper by Viktor Dyk( )

2 editions published in 2017 in French and English and held by 509 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Viktor Dyk's rendition of the Pied Piper legend masterfully blends lyrical prose with early twentieth century modernist perspective. For over a century, 'The Ratcatcher' has held its own among the great works of Czech literature, but now this classic is introduced to us in English for the first time

Un été capricieux : roman humoristique by Vladislav Vančura( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in French and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Vladislav Vancura's Summer of Caprice is commonly considered untranslatable. The playful style of the narrative, the level of language mastering and also the development of the metatextual context of the last 80 years together form this unmistakable classic of Czech literature. Looking from this perspective our English edition is an experiment, thanks to the translation by Mark Corner on one side which inevitably - as every other translation - is an interpretation, and the original illustrations by Jiri Grus and the typography by Zdenek Ziegler on the other side. However, it is an experiment a

The Chattertooth Eleven : a tale of a Czech football team for boys old and young by Eduard Bass( Book )

2 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dnes už klasická povídka Eduarda Basse z roku 1922 vychází nyní i v anglickém prekladu. Autorkou dodnes aktuálního prevodu, který se vyznacuje tvurcím a hravým prístupem k Bassovu jazyku a zároven verností stylu originálu a dobe, v níž vznikl, je Ruby Hobling, predmluvu napsal Mark Corner. Jedno z nejslavnejších del ceské prózy vypráví príbeh otce Klapzuby, který ze svých jedenácti synu vychová fenomenální fotbalový tým. Mužeme jej císt jako oslavu ducha fair play, houževnatosti a sportovního nadšení i jako dobove aktuální hrícku, lehce ironizující opojení ceskou kopanou. Anglické vydání navaz
