War with the newts by Karel Čapek( Book )

25 editions published between 1936 and 2018 in English and held by 673 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"War with the Newts" is Karel Capek's darkly humorous allegory of early twentieth-century Czech politics. Captain van Toch discovers a colony of newts in Sumatra which can not only be taught to trade and use tools, but also to speak. As the rest of the world learns of the creatures and their wonderful capabilities, it is clear that this new species is ripe for exploitation - they can be traded in their thousands, will do the work no human wants to do, and can fight - but the humans have given no thought to the terrible consequences of their actions

Three novels : Hordubal, An ordinary life, Meteor by Karel Čapek( Book )

8 editions published between 1948 and 1949 in English and held by 268 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This trilogy of novels was the culmination of Karel Capek's career. The novels share neither characters nor events; instead, they approach the problem of knowing people--of mutual understanding--in a variety of ways. Detectives faced with a murder reconstruct the crime, but not the character of the man who was murdered. Three people tell stories about a dying pilot they know almost nothing about; each story is as full of truth as it is devoid of facts. And one man looks back on his life and discovers all the people he might have been."--Back cover

The cheat : a novel by Karel Capek( Book )

5 editions published between 1940 and 1942 in English and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Last and unfinished work of the author, which deals with a man who wanted to be recognized as an artist, a musician, and a composer of at least one opera. Beda Foltyn is described in 14 chapters by those who knew him. He comes across as a self-centered and self-indulgent individual who is somewhat of a despicable poseur--a phony. Nonetheless, the book ends "like a fugue to the glory of God's creation and of man's true art."

The gardener's year by Karel Čapek( Book )

9 editions published between 1931 and 1951 in English and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is seldom that a practical guide to gardening attains the level of a literary masterpiece, still more seldom that a book on gardening can amuse and instruct even those who have no garden to plant, nor the faintest interest in acquiring one. The Gardener's Year is a characteristic product of Karel Capek's genius: amusing, informative, and full of a quizzical interest in people, animals and plants. In this new version Geoffrey Newsome - the highly acclaimed translator of Capek's witty Letters from England - has captured the grace and irony of the original Czech, to produce a volume that will be treasured equally by those who love gardening as a relaxation, by those who loathe it as a chore, and by those who have no interest in it whatsoever. This edition includes the original illustrations by the painter Josef Capek, the author's brother, who collaborated with Karel on many artistic projects
