Poslední společné dílo bratří Čapků - Adam Stvořitel a jeho rukopis
THE MANUSCRIPT OF KAREL AND JOSEF CAPEK'S ADAM STVORITEL, THEIR LAST JOINT WORK
Languages of publication
Examining one version of a manuscript of Adam Stvoritel (Adam the Creator, 1927), which is probably generally unknown, the author sets straight the generally received notion of this being a joint work by the brothers Capek, Josef (1887 -1945) and Karel (1890-1938), and attributes the proper share of authorship to each brother. Using textual criticism he also reconstructs the original form of one of the last MS versions of the play. The article seeks to explain why critics, especially those at the time, rejected this play, the last the Capeks wrote together.
