Jan Skácel

Jan Skácel (February 7, 1922 - November 7, 1989) was one of the best known Czech poets of the 20th century.

He often juxtaposed the fear stoked by the communist regime in Czechoslovakia and the highly free syntax of the Czech language. His poems are closely connected to the traditions and the nature of the region he lived in, Southern Moravia.

Skácel was the editor of Host do domu, an important magazine on literature, between 1963 and 1969.
