Language: Czech

A supplement to the six volumes of the collected works of one of the most outstanding Czech poets of the latter half of the 20th century, this book presents a selection of Šiktanc’s works for the youngest readers, mostly dating back to the 1960s. Even though the three-dozen rhymes represent “stories short in lines”, they are marked by a distinctive sound quality, careful speech-sound instrumentation and the breathing of life into things that testifies to the author’s poetic interest in the everyday ritual.
