Abstract

On 4th December 2020, the Czech writer, journalist and literary and film critic Antonín Jaroslav Liehm died at the age of 96. Antonín Liehm was one of the most significant 20th century Czech cultural figures. To pay homage to him after his death, The Britské listy Interview has re-run a Christmas conversation Jan Čulík conducted with him in December 2013. In this talk, Jan Čulík asks Mr. Liehm to look back at his life and work from the vantage point of a ninety-year-old person. Was it all worth it? They also discuss the attitudes of the Czech now and during the twentieth century. Does Jaroslav Hašek's classic work Good Soldier Švejk epitomise the most significant characteristic features of the Czechs? The interview was broadcast by the Czech cable TV station Reginalnitelevize.cz from 9th December 2020.
