9780140038606: Apocryphal Stories (Modern Classics)

Karel Capek's play R U R , introduced the word "robot" into many languages; but the work of this great Czech writer included novels, short stories, political comment and much else. This delightful collection of vignettes was published posthumously in Prague at the end of the Second World War, and one wonders why such telling scenes in the lives of classical figures have been excluded from the ordinary history books.
