MY CRAZY CENTURY. PART 1.

When Talking about Great Czech Writers. Ivan Klima, is Sometimes Over Looked. Big Shame. Read Many of His Books. My Merry Mornings, Love and Garbage, & The Ultimate Intimacy, Lovers For a Day. One of My Favourite Books of All Time is " The Spirit Of Prague ". A Book That I Treasure. When at the Czech Embassy. Was Talking About Him. It was Stated How Good His Memoir Was. In Czech, it was in Two Parts. In English Translation, Both Parts Together. Just Finished the First Part. Here are My Thoughts. Fascinating Section on His Time in Terezin. His Hardships, berthed in the Dresden & Magdeburg Barracks. Agree with His Statement. You Should Never Feel Sorry for The Germans. Their Arrogance in Believing that were Born Leaders. Plus there was No Need to Keep Up their Killing. Even in the Final Moments of the War. Revenge of Some Sorts was had After. You Can Still View the Hanging of K H Frank in Pankrac Prison, on You Tube. Klima Still Remembers his Teachers Life Lessons. Gambling Only Pays The Tax of Your Own Stupidity. He Explains at First How Naive He Was on Communism. He Writes Some Essays to Accompany the Book. Two Of the Best Being the Necessity of Faith. Plus, Dictators and Dictatorship. Book Moves On to His Army Service. Meeting then Marrying His Wife, Helena. Writers He Admired, Alexander Kliment & Ludvik Vaculik. His Meeting with Jiri Trnka. Master of Puppets & Animation. Plus Warning on Machines. Taking Over with More & More Human Tasks. But what will A Machine Express ?. While Ivan was researching for His Book. Did Hands on Work as a Surveyor. For His Troubles, He Fell in a Cesspool. Interesting Piece on Dobris Castle. Where Many Czech Writers Stayed. Plus He Met there Jean Paul Sartre. Klima Wrote His Play " The Castle ". The Premier Being at Vinohrady Theatre. October 23, 1964. Plus the Authority,s Many Attempts to Ban it. The Birth of Literarni Novni. The Essay on Dogmatists & Fanatics. Love The Quote from the Academic Dictionary of Literary Czech " Dogma is an Unproved Assertion Accepted on the Basis of Faith and Considered Incontrovertible, Infallible, & Eternal ". Ending on the Communist Working Party,s. They Did Nothing. Apart from Drinking. Either Chasing Women or Playing Cards.
