Jiřina Hauková was a Czech poet and translator, member of the “Skupina 42” (Group 42). She was forbidden to publish between 1948 and 1958 and later from 1970 to 1989. However, she issued her poems in samizdat volumes. Besides her own work, she also translated Anglo-American literature. In 1950 she married Jindřich Chalupecký, a well-known Czech art and literary critic and theoretician. After Chalupecký’s death in 1990, she successively donated his written legacy to the Museum of Czech Literature. In 1996 she was awarded the prestigious literary Jaroslav Seifert Prize, and a year later, she got the Medal of Merit from the president of the Czech Republic, Václav Havel.
