Black Lyricism

“It's a sorry sight when Nezval, a man living in comfort and luxury, with an income of tens of thousands, declares Nerval – a man who walked without a coat in the harshest winter because he had not the money to buy a coat, pay rent or buy food – a poet of the bourgeois world, whereas he calls himself the bard of the working class.“ Jan Zábrana: Celý život (An Entire Life), 11 Feb. 1953
