Art and Life in Modernist Prague : Karel Capek and His Generation, 1911-1938 Hardback

Part of the Palgrave Studies in Cultural and Intellectual History series

Description

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.
