Jaroslav Seifert in Poems on the Underground

Jaroslav Seifert (1901-1986) is the most internationally recognized Czech poet. Seifert belonged to prominent leaders of Czechoslovakian artistic avant-garde in the 1920s and published over 30 collections of poems. He is not only acknowledged for his poetical production, but also as symbol of freedom of expression.

June - August 2009

Jaroslav Seifert is the first Czech to win the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1984.


Jaroslav Seifert in Poems on the Underground will be launched on 4 June 2009, 3 pm, Westminster Tube Station 


Since London's Poems on the Underground were launched in 1986, the idea of putting poems on public transport has spread to cities across Europe and beyond. The anthology of Poems on the Underground, frequently updated, has been a runaway best seller. Jaroslav Seifert's poem And Now Goodbye as well as Spacetime by Miroslav Holub will be appearing in Best Poems on the Underground, to be published by Weidenfeld & Nicolson in October 2009.
