Summary

Pavel Šrut's Worm-Eaten Time collects the seminal work of one of Czech Republic's most important living poets, in an award-winning translation by Deborah H. Garfinkle. With dark humor and surprising tenderness, Šrut's Soviet-banned masterpiece is an elegy for Šrut's fallen homeland, written in the months following the Soviet invasion. An essential addition to the canon of twentieth century banned literature, his work as a poet testifies to the power of poetry and the human spirit that can overcome the forces that would silence an individual’s will to speak the truth.

"Pavel Šrut is the best poet of his generation." —Arnost Lustig
