Vitezslav Nezval (1900 - 1958)
Vitezslav Nezval , an original member of the avant-garde artists group Devetsil and a leading figure in the Poetist movement, was perhaps the most prolific Czech writer of the interwar period. His output consists of a number of poetry collections, experimental plays and novels, memoirs, essays, and translations. His best work is from the interwar period. Along with Karel Teige, Jindrich Styrsky, and Toyen, Nezval frequently visited Paris, engaging with the French surrealists. Forging a friendship with Andre Breton and Paul Eluard, he was instrumental in founding The Surrealist Group in Czechoslovakia in 1934 (the first such group outside of France), serving as editor of the group's journal Surrealismus.
