Art and Life in Modernist Prague : Karel Capek and His Generation, 1911-1938 Hardback
by Thomas Ort
Part of the Palgrave Studies in Cultural and Intellectual History series
In most contemporary historical writing the picture of modern life in Habsburg Central Europe is a gloomy story of the failure of rationalism and the rise of protofascist movements.
This book tells a different story, focusing on the Czech writers and artists distinguished by their optimistic view of the world in the years before WWI.
