Popis The gardener

Booktook.cz píše:

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".
