Item Description: Brentano's, 1930. hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. No Dustjacket. 1st Edition. New York. 1930. Brentano's. 1st American Edition. Very Good. No Dustjacket. 279 pages. hardcover. Karel Capek (January 9, 1890 - December 25, 1938) was one of the most influential Czech writers of the 20th century. Capek was born in Malé Svatonovice, Bohemia, Austria-Hungary (now Czech Republic). He wrote with intelligence and humour on a wide variety of subjects. His works are known for their interesting and precise descriptions of reality, and Capek is renowned for his excellent work with the Czech language. He is perhaps best known as a science fiction author, who wrote before science fiction became widely recognized as a separate genre. He can be considered one of the founders of classical, non-hardcore European science fiction, a type which focuses on possible future (or alternative) social and human evolution on Earth, rather than technically advanced stories of space travel. However, it is best to classify him with Aldous Huxley and George Orwell as a speculative fiction writer, distinguishing his work from genre-specific hard science fiction. Many of his works discuss ethical and other aspects of revolutionary inventions and processes that were already anticipated in the first half of 20th century. These include mass production, atomic weapons, and post-human intelligent beings such as robots or intelligent salamanders. In addressing these themes, Capek was also expressing fear of impending social disasters, dictatorship, violence, and the unlimited power of corporations, as well as trying to find some hope for human beings. keywords: 41770. inventory # 15031. FROM THE PUBLISHER - The stories in MONEY AND OTHER STORIES (1929) by Karel Capek are mainly concerned with middle-class man's efforts to break out of the narrow circle of destiny and grasp ultimate values. It is no accident that the decisive role in almost all the stories is played by money. The characters in these books are, for the most part, helpless victims of forces that have overwhelmed them. Author's first book of short stories in the English language. Bookseller Inventory # 15031
