About the Author

Vitezslav Nezval (1900-58), an original member of the avant-garde artists group Devetsil and a leading figure in the Poetist movement, was perhaps the most prolific Czech writer of the interwar period. His output consists of a number of poetry collections, experimental plays and novels, memoirs, essays, and translations. His best work is from the interwar period. Nezval frequently visited Paris, engaging with the French surrealists. Forging a friendship with Andre Breton and Paul Eluard, he was instrumental in founding The Surrealist Group in Czechoslovakia.
Stephan Delbos is the first Poet Laureate of Plymouth, Massachusetts. His poetry, essays and translations have been published internationally. He is the editor of From a Terrace in Prague: A Prague Poetry Anthology (Litteraria Pragensia, 2011). His play Chetty's Lullaby, about trumpet legend Chet Baker, was produced in San Francisco in 2014. His play Deaf Empire, about Czech composer Bedřich Smetana, was produced by Prague Shakespeare Company in 2017. His co-translation of The Absolute Gravedigger, by Czech poet Vítĕzslav Nezval, was awarded the PEN/Heim Translation Grant in 2015 and was published by Twisted Spoon Press. His co- translation of Nezval's Woman in the Plural is forthcoming from Twisted Spoon Press. He is the translator of Paris Notebook by Czech poet Tereza Riedlbauchov (The Visible Spectrum, 2020), and the author of the poetry chapbook In Memory of Fire (Cape Cod Poetry Review, 2016); and the poetry collection Light Reading (BlazeVOX, 2019). A Senior Lecturer at Charles University and Anglo-American University, he is also a founding editor of B O D Y.
