The monograph is the third volume of Bohuslav Martinů's correspondence with his family in Polička. It comprises 56 items of correspondence from 1934 and 1935. Although one-sided, as only letters sent by the composer were preserved, the correspondence contains Martinů's unique and authentic remarks on both his personal and his professional life, in which he shared his news, intentions, and opinions both with his closest relatives and, through them, to a broader circle of friends in Polička and Czechoslovakia. The Czech version provides a true diplomatic transcription of Martinů's manuscript letters and includes facsimiles of the correspondence. Comprehensive annotations give historical context. The monograph includes a parallel English translation.
