"It represents an extremely ambitious attempt at treating, selectively, the two modern literatures, and is done with great exactness and sensitivity where both Polish and Czech traditions are concerned. . . . he has been successful in making the two literatures come alive through this selective approach, and, at the same time, supplying a historical dimension in the form of developmental continuity." - William E. Harkins
