A collection of verses IN CZECH (for copyright, please write to the author at email@example.com)
Martin Reiner creates experience which engages the senses. He is also an aesthete and master craftsman of form whose deep appreciation of poetry tells him that practically everything is out there already. Reiner’s poetry is a joyous embracing of the erotic, yet he is happy to keep the company of Ivan Blatný, Ivan Wernisch and J.H. Krchovský, all of whom are in a sense his “guests”. And for this author the notion of “guests” is no poet’s abstraction: it is a concrete requirement of the social being. Reiner’s use of metaphor, stanza and rhyme is so exemplary that some of these poems could be used in school textbooks; at the same time there is an irrepressible light-heartedness in words set down in all earnestness.
