'... profoundly strange, with outcomes that you shrink from rather than anticipate, and so you simply pause from time to time to make peace with your goose bumps. The very particular rhythm of the verse contributes to its effect, which makes the translation all the more impressive.' - Helen Oyeyemi, interviewed in The New York Times; '[Kytice] remained little known in the English-speaking world until the current decade: it was considered almost impossible to translate. ... [Erben's] first concern in writing Kytice was the melody of the verses, which is integral to the work's sinister atmosphere. Each of the thirteen poems has a different scheme of metre and rhyme, and puts onomatopoeia to good use. ... Susan Reynolds ... rises to all these challenges with admirable skill and precision.' - Zuzana Slobodova, The Times Literary Supplement; 'A unique bilingual Czech-English edition of Erben's Kytice - the author's Czech original is accompanied by Susan Reynolds' excellent English translations.' - Jan Culik, Britske lists; 'There is no such degree of precision, clarity and truth as is found in The Water-Goblin.' - Leos Janacek
