Karel Čapek

Karel Čapek (1890-1938) was a Czech writer, playwright, and essayist. He is best known for his science fiction works, including the play R.U.R. (Rossum's Universal Robots), which introduced the word "robot" to the English language. He also wrote novels, short stories, and essays on a variety of topics, including politics and philosophy. His works often explored themes of humanism and morality in a world of advancing technology and industry. He was an outspoken critic of fascism and totalitarianism, which led to his works being banned in Nazi-occupied Czechoslovakia during World War II. Čapek's legacy continues to influence writers today, with his work often cited as an inspiration for modern science fiction authors.
