First published in 1853, these poems are among the best-loved and most widely read 19th century Czech classics. Kytice was inspired by Erben's love of Slavonic myth and the folklore surrounding such creatures as the Noonday Witch and the Water Goblin. Expanded in 1861, the collection published here has inspired generations of artists and composers, including Dvorak, Smetana, and Janacek. Translated by Susan Reynolds.
