Is work of Bohumil Hrabal Bohumil Hrabal idyllic?

Hrabal is a synonym for idyll, at least for most of society, which perceives Bohumil Hrabal's works mainly through film adaptations. But his work has a more hidden and surprisingly far more abundant aspect: non-idyllicity. Why this feature of Hrabal's texts appeals more to foreign readers will be discussed by experts or translators of his books from France, Japan, Germany, or Poland, where he is still one of the most-read authors. They will be joined by leading experts on Hrabal's work from Czechia. The conference will be presented in Czech.

The conference will take place in the Sokol Cinema in Nymburk and will be open to the general public upon registration - depending on the capacity of the cinema hall. The international conference will be followed by an accompanying program including guided tours of Nymburk or excursions to Kersko.

More information, including a registration form, can be found on the event website.
