Abstract(s)
The article reviews the works and personal reflections of Jiri Weil, one of the most prominent writer of Czech Avant-Garde who spent several years of his professional life in Soviet Moscow. The attention is mostly paid to the demonstration of the opinion transformation which can be found not only in Weil's own reflections but also in his prefaces of poetry anthologies or articles in Soviet newspapers. As a significant representative of Prague Avant-Garde groups and supporter of Russian emigrés, Weil was recognized as an expert on Russian literature and culture. Thanks to his professional knowledge of Russian language, he had opportunity not only to visit Soviet Russia for many times, but also to work for many years in the editorial office of Soviet journal. This experience represents the crucial moment in his views on Soviet reality. Restrictions and exhaustive routine led to negative reflections which were juxtaposed in his novel Moskva-hranice.
