Abstract

One of the greatest Czech poets of all times, Jaroslav Vrchlický (1853-1912), whose goal was to revive in Bohemia the contacts with Western European cultures, translated Giosuè Carducci's poetry, rendering all the nuances and colors of his verse, and exchanged a few letters with him. Vrchlický also published an important critical essay on Carducci, dealing first with Italian poetry before him, then with a biography of Carducci, and finally analyzing his work. Carducci also influenced Vrchlický's poetic work by inspiring the Czech poet to write by the ancient models. (MP)
