토론토 – 요셉 시크보레츠키 체코작가 별세

체코를 대표하는 작가 중 한 명인 요셉 시크보레츠키는 민주자유화운동인 „1968년 프라하의 봄“ 을 저지하기위한 소비에트 군 점령 이후 캐나다로 망명했으며 87세의 나이로 2012년 1월3일 토론토에서 암으로 별세헀습니다.

Škvorecký and his wife, the writer, actress and important editor Zdena Salivarová, founded 68 Publishers in 1971 while in their Canadian exile. Over the next two decades they published more than 200 titles of communist-banned Czech and Slovak books and became a vocal and important western outlet for dissident writers, including globally acclaimed writers Václav Havel, Milan Kundera and/or Arnošt Lustig.

Josef Škvorecky was also a prolific novelist and poet, whose own books had been banned in his homeland during the communist times. His works include The Cowards, The Engineer of Human Souls, and The Bass Saxophone. His short stories were also translated into Korean, most recently in anthology 프라하 - 작가들이사랑한 도시 (Prague: City Loved by Writers), published by Seoul-based Happy Reading Books in 2011.
