Edgar Allan Poe in the Czech Visual Arts. New Publication

Published April 8, 2021

The new publication by the editors Veronika Hulíková and Otto M. Urban ´A dream within a dream´ examines the reception of the work of the American writer Edgar Allan Poe in the visual arts in the Czech lands, and the more general phenomenon of horror and fear.

To this day, Poe enjoys great attention, and his short stories and poems inspire not only writers but also artists, filmmakers, and musicians. The project introduces a broad gamut of artists from František Kupka and Josef Váchal to Alén Diviš and, most recently, Krištof Kintera and Martin Zet.
