The present study called The Spaces of the Czech Literary Underground or Notes about The Works of ho Vodsed'álek deals with a specific kind of European alternative literature with its own non-conformist aesthetics. Much more than avant-garde Czech poetry of 20th century the underground literature is bound to German and Anglo-Saxon cultural tradition. When analyzing the poetry and stories of Ivo Vodsecd'álek the author of the study pays his attention especially to the poet's understanding space in its most important dimensions, i.e. vertical (or spiritual) and horizontal (centre × periphery) ones, but also to his understanding time and movement (personal voyage or pilgrimage). Ideas of other representatives of the underground both in 50s and 70s are also taken into consideration, esp. of Egon Bondy and Ivan M. Jirous.
