    Miroslav Bambušek’s authorial project is based on the work of the German writer and playwright Wolfgang Borchert, not very well known in the Czech Republic. Borchert is one of the first German authors to openly express his views on the tragic events and traumas associated with World War II. Despite his prosaic form, his work is a special expressive poetry of desolation.

    Borchert’s man, a young embittered hero, returns from the war with an incurable inner wound, unable to repress the horror of war. It shattered all his ideals and dreams. It became a destructive experience. The rhythm of his speech is stuttering, almost as if he has forgotten how to speak. His thoughts lack logical coherence. His damaged nerves react absurdly to external stimuli. This condition eventually leads to feelings of groundless fear and anxiety.
