    About

    In 1972, the Czech poet and playwright František Hrubín published the fairy tale in verse The Beauty and the Beast, included in the last collection he completed.
    Inspired by a widely known ancient Indo-European myth, he imbued it with his singular vision of the world.
    The timeless archetypal legend of the power and magic of love enthrals all generations.
