Letters from England

Saturday 18 August 2007 19:40-20:00 (Radio 3)

By Karl Capek.

Translated by Geoffrey Newsome, and read by Owen Teale.

For two months in 1924, Czech writer and playwright Karl Capek travelled throughout England, Scotland and Wales. His witty, appreciative dissections of the 'English' national character and culture quickly established themselves as masterpieces of observation and classics of modern Czech prose.

Duration:

20 minutes
