An anthology of plays by the Austrian playwright Ödön von Horváth, the creator of the modern folk play, whose works revealed the nature of emerging Fascism and the ghastly comical mentality of so-called ordinary man and his never-ending longing for love, faith, and hope. The publication contains well-known plays such as Geschichten aus dem Wiener Wald and Kasimir und Karoline, as well as works not previously published in Czech or less known, such as Zur schönen Aussicht, Don Juan kommt aus dem Krieg and Sladek der schwarze Reichswehrmann. Horváth’s plays are published in translations by J. Hrubešová, J. Balvín, and J. Stach.
The book is published on the centenary of the playwright’s birth.
