A CZECH-ENGLISH PARALLEL-TEXT CONCISE NOVEL First published in Prague in 1922, this dark concise novel by Michal Mares (1893-1971), set in the Czechoslovakia of his day, explores, with anarchist undertones, the place of women in society. Mares is described as having developed from an early age a "dangerously profound sense of truth, justice and human freedom" (Pavel Koukal) and under Communism he became the first Czech whose writing led to expulsion from the official writers' union, the Syndicate of Czech Writers, followed by seven years in prison on political charges. With an introduction and afterword by David Short, Teaching Fellow, Czech and Slovak, University College London. "From this wretched land I greet all THOSE WHO SUFFER, who live everywhere, even in prosperous countries, everywhere where the sun of God shines down on womankind." Jantar Publishing aims to publish a variety of Central and East European works of literature that are in their way "trapped in amber" and awaiting discovery.
