Summary
Poet and artist Bohuslav Reynek spent most of his life in the relative obscurity of the Czech-Moravian Highlands. Although he suffered at the hands of the Communist regime, he cannot be numbered among the dissident poets of Eastern Europe who won acclaim for their political poetry; rather, Reynek belongs to an older pastoral-devotional tradition - a kindred spirit to the likes of Gerard Manley Hopkins, William Wordsworth, Robert Frost, and Edward Thomas. The first comprehensive book on Reynek to be published in English, this work presents a selection of poems spanning his life and includes twenty-five of the poet's color etchings. Featuring three essays by leading scholars situating Reynek's life and work alongside those of his better-known peers, this book presents a noted Czech artist to the wider world, reshaping and deepening our understanding of modern European poetry
