Summary/Abstract: This contribution discusses ‘reviews with excerpts’, a popular means by which the periodical Světová literatura (World Literature) reported on non-Czech writing in the 1960s. Using one particular review with excerpts, written by Sergej Machonin (1918–1995), of the Polish writer Julian Stryjkowski’s Austeria (The Inn, 1966), the author demonstrates Machonin’s interpretation of this novel, which is determined by his coming from a certain generation, culture, and political situation.
