"The Mother" is a 1938 anti-war drama written by the famous Czech novelist, Karel Capek. Heavily influenced by the Spanish civil war, the play portrays the relationships between men going off to war, and their families and mothers who want them to stay. It explores fascism and freedom, and conveys the suffering that war brings with it. This volume will appeal to anyone who enjoys war literature, and constitutes a must-read for fans of Capek's seminal work. Karel Capek (1890 - 1938) was an early twentieth century Czech writer who is most remembered for his significant influence on the genre of science fiction. We are republishing this book now in an affordable, modern edition, complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
