Author Code: OKCP

Born: Jan. 9, 1890 - Male Svatonovice, Austria-Hungary

Died: Dec. 25, 1938 - Prague, Czechoslovakia

Educated at the Academic Grammar School, Charles University in Prague and Friedrich Wilhelm University in Berlin. He received a PhD in 1915. As a student, Capek had already begun to write non-fiction works. Suffering from spinal problems, he was exempted from military service in the First World War. Instead, he took up journalism in Prague. There, he became close friends with Tomas Masaryk, the country's first president. From 1917 to 1921, he edited The National Newspaper. He, and his brother Josef, joined the staff of the People's Paper in 1921. Capek's first true success came with R.U.R (1920), one of the first works concerning robots. During the 1920s, Capek produced many short stories and essays, both fiction and non-fiction. During the 1930s, his work tended to warn of the rise of Fascism and Nazism. He marries Olga Scheinpflugova, a Czech actress. During 1938, while working on flood damage, he caught a cold which developed into pneumonia and he died. His brother Josef died in Bergen-Belsen Concentration Camp. Capek's works include Pictures From the Insect's Life (1921), The Absolute at Large (1922), Adam the Creator (1927), Hordubal (1933), Meteor (1934), An Ordinary Life (1934), The White Disease (1937) and The Mother (1938).
