Synopsis: Vaclav Havel was born in Czechoslovakia in 1936. He is a leading playwright and has long been involved in the human rights movement in Czechoslovakia - and was sentenced to four and a half years imprisonment for this close association. In January 1932, for reasons of health, he was released from prison before his sentence was completed. The letters he wrote to his wife were published as "Letters to Olga". Practically everything Havel has ever written has acquired a new resonance since he became President of Czechoslovakia in 1989. This selection of his early prose ranges in time from the early 60s to his New Year message in 1990.

About the Author: Vaclav Havel was born in Czechoslovakia in 1936. He is a founding spokesman of Charter 77 and the author of many influential essays on the nature of totalitarianism and dissent. In 1979 he was sentenced to four and a half years in prison for his involvement in the human rights movement. In November 1989 he helped to found the Civic Forum, the first legal opposition movement in Czechoslovakia in forty years; and in December 1989 he was elected President of Czechoslovakia.
