FRANTISEK LADISLAV CELAKOVSKY
An influential contemporary of Kollar, Frantisek Ladislav Celakovsky was born March 7, 1799 in Strakonice, and died August 5, 1852 , in Prague. After completing his studies, Celakovsky spent his time as tutor, editor and as professor of Slavonic languages at Prague and elsewhere. Through his tutorship years with the Kinsky family, the versatile writer had ample opportunity for travel, and spent some time gathering material for his later day literary and pedagogic activities. Among his outstanding works are “The Hundred-Leaf Rose,” “Echoes of Russian Songs” and “Collected Poems”, all published between 1822 and 1840.
