Publisher Description

The Mother is an anti-war drama by the famed Czech writer of the early 20th century Karel Čapek.



The play is influenced by the Spanish civil war and illustrates the difficult relationship between the men that wanted to fight, and their mothers and loved ones who didn't want them to go and join the fight against fascism in order to defend democracy, freedom, and progress and to show the upset and suffering that comes with war.



This early work by Karel Čapek was originally published in 1938 and we are now republishing it with a brand new introductory biography.
