Prague Hotel & Residence Seifert - history
This hotel in Prague bears the name of a Nobel prize winning Czech writer, poet and journalist, Jaroslav Seifert (1901 – 1986).
Seifert was born in Žižkov and published his first collection of poems in 1921. He was a member of the Communist Party, editor of a number of communist newspapers and magazines and the employee of a communist publishing house.
During the 1920s he was considered a leading representative of the Czechoslovak avant-garde. He was one of the founders of the journal Devětsil.
In March 1929, he and six other important communist writers were expelled from the Communist Party for signing a manifesto protesting against Bolshevik tendencies in the new leadership of the Czechoslovak Communist Party.
He subsequently worked as a journalist in the social-democratic and trade union press during the 1930s and 1940s. In 1949, Seifert left journalism and devoted himself exclusively to literature.
- His poetry was awarded important state prizes in 1936, 1955, and 1968.
- In 1967 he was designated National Artist.
- He was the official Chairman of the Czechoslovak Writers’ Union for several years (1968-70).
- In 1977, he signed the Charter 77 in opposition to the repressive regime of the time.
Seifert was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1984 - "for his poetry which endowed with freshness, sensuality and rich inventiveness provides a liberating image of the indomitable spirit and versatility of man".
