New book: The Drama of the International Statue of Martin Kukučín
Dráma medzinárodnej sochy Martina Kukučína [The Drama of the International Statue of Martin Kukučín] aims at the history of the first Kukučín monuments in the world that were created abroad much earlier than those in his homeland. Martin Kukučín or Matej Bencúr (by his real name) was praised abroad not only during his life but also after his departure and death in 1928. And he is still respected and honoured even today. However, due to a lack of information and Kukučín’s modesty, people on Brač Island and in Latin America knew little or even nothing about his writings.
