Podrobný popis:

Publikace: Gardener's Year - Karel Čapek. From the internationally acclaimed Czech writer Karel Capek comes

this beautifully written and marvelously apt account of the trials

and tribulations of the gardener's life. First published in Prague

in 1929, "The Gardener's Year" combines a richly comic portrait of

life in the garden, narrated month by month, with a series of

delightful illustrations by the author's older brother and

collaborator, Josef. Capek's gardeners--all too human, despite

their lofty aspirations--often look the fool, whether they be found

sopping wet, victims of the cobralike water hose, or hunched over,

hands immersed in the soil, "presenting their rumps to the splendid

azure sky." In their repeated folly, Capek gives us not only cause

for laughter but also, in the end, "testimony of the imperishable

and miraculous optimism of the human race." This Modern Library

edition is published with a new Introduction by Verlyn Klinkenborg,

a "New York Times" editorialist and the author of "Making Hay" and

"The Last Fine Time". Publikace: Gardener's Year - Karel Čapek. Karel Capek's delightful book, divided chronologically into chapters for each month, paints a comically self-effacing and impressionistic picture of a gardener's ups and downs as he negotiates the unpredictable forces of nature that govern the life of his garden, from January through December. Capek's sense of the powerlessness both in society and the natural world was magnified by the historical circumstances surrounding him, and he uses this sense to great comic effect in The Gardener's Year.His distinct voice is the foundation of a narrative that conveys a wonderfully vivid -- and at times wonderfully absurd -- sense of the way in which we try to grapple with the seductions, blows, and boons of the natural world.
