Sort: Oldest first
A Czech poet of great eminence; born in Sabotka, Jan. 25, 1836; died at Prague, March 30 (?), 1893. "Hana" was his first dramatic effort; but "The Way of Public Opinion" and "A Servant of his Lord" are deemed the triumphs of his genius. In the historic tragedies of "The Son of Man" and "Zavist" he obtains the most vivid dramatic effects. Few play-writers of recent times have equaled him in sensational climax and in dignity of diction and movement.
