Stephan Delbos, who is an AAU lecturer of Creative Writing, Advanced Poetry Seminar, and Composition courses is very happy to extend an invitation to the book launch of The Absolute Gravedigger, written by the legendary Czech poet Vítězslav Nezval in 1937, and now co-translated by Stephan Delbos and Tereza Novická into English for the first time. They were awarded a PEN/Heim Translation Grant for this project and the book is published by Prague's own Twisted Spoon Press.


„These are marvellous surrealist poems, and we hope to match their uncanny brilliance with an unforgettable evening of poetry and professional shenanigans.“


Stephan Delbos
