Karel Capek. R.U.R. Rossumovi universalni roboty. (Rossum's Universal Robots)
"...Karel Capek was interested not in laws of robotics (although the drama did become a cult piece in the science fiction canon), but in laws of the human: how from the artificial and synthetic what's living and life-affirming germinates.
This is the first Ukrainian translation of "R.U.R." by Karel Capek made based on the first edition of 1920. Since its appearance, this anti-utopia has become ever closer and clearer to the audience..."

Samuel Beckett. Mercier and Camier.


The proposed novel will most appeal to those who are already familiar with works by Beckett: it was the "turning point", it is in it that Beckett draws the themes that he will never abandon, it is "during" the novel that the characters emerge who will always haunt him – both in the drama, and in the prose...
