Božena Němcová ´ 7 characters Read å eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB ´ Božena Němcová characters Babička ✓ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB He year in the imperial city of Vienna Thus their grandmother is brought home to look after the children and the property This is the background against which the author unfolds the most important prose work in Czech literature and creates “one of the best female characters in world literature?. The Grandmother Babicka Bozena Nemcova When I was young my favorite book was Louisa May Alcott s Little Women Alcott s tale about Meg Jo Beth and Amy went a long way toward forming my ideas about fairness kindness and how to get along in life The Grandmother serves the same purpose in the Czech Republic Published originally in 1853 15 years before Little Women The Grandmother tells the story of an elderly country woman in northeast Bohemia who comes to live with her daughter and her daughter s family on a noblewoman s estate Mr Prosek the son in law works for the noblewoman you see the house is part of his living expense Grandma is immediately pressed into service as babysitter for the couple s children But the old lady doesn t mind in fact she thrives on teaching the children everything from Christianity to superstitions and folk remedies Everyone in the neighborhood loves her of course even the noblewoman who comes to believe that Grandmother is not only the epitome of Czech peasantry but full of good ideas to bootThe novel is beloved in the Czech Republic but I suspect most modern day Americans would find it tedious There s no plot really just a series of vignettes following the Prosek family through the course of a year I found it interesting because of my heritage and because I was looking for examples of how pagan practices had survived in Bohemia But there s very little action and only a little conflict among the characters The biggest revelation is perhaps the story of Victorka a madwoman who lives in a cave near the family s home She went mad after conceiving a child out of wedlock and the most interesting thing about it is how no one in the village condemns her either for becoming pregnant rather than scolding the girl for her loose morals the villagers consider the father a demon or for her treatment of the baby which she delivers alone and then throws in the river Victorka s story is told with typical Czech practicality and none of the melodrama that someone like Dickens would likely have employedIf you have an interest in historical accounts of idyllic 19th century family life or of old Czech customs I d recommend checking out The Grandmother for its place in Czech literature alone The rest of you should probably give it a pass

This is a delightful book by a late 19th century Bohemian Czech writer who focused on the lower classes in her country Grandmother leaves her beloved village to live with her daughter and her children because their father works for the Princess and spends half the year in Vienna Grandmother is one of those delightful characters in this type of fiction who knows everything and can always be counted on to keep a secret and give good advice She also models how religious many of the peasants were in that time It s hard to put into words the charm of this book because the story seems too simple But it s an excellent look at Bohemian life in the 19th century as changes such as intermarriage with Germans Croats etc was becoming common and Bohemia was becoming concerned with the lower classes The prose is smooth and soothing very fitting to the slower pace of village life at this time
