The collection contains all of the author’s poetry, prose and his studies and essays on art, literature and culture as well as his screenplays and radio dramas.
The texts written since the 1960s are divided into sections based on their genre and contain work published in books after 1989 as well as pieces that have so far appeared only in magazines, catalogues, monographs, collections, bibliophilic editions and unpublished texts.
This complex literary picture of Eugen Brikcius, a key figure in Czech culture during the second half of the 20th Century is accompanied by a comprehensive study by journalist and author Viktor Šlajchrt and was edited by Radim Kopáč.
“Brikcius is quite simply a Renaissance man and every inch the intellectual – in the best sense of the word. The essence of his work is summed up by the writer Viktor Šlajchrt in a foreword: ‘Eugen Brikcius’ most authentic creation continued to be his personality, and by extension the story artfully stylized into a legend.’”
