In addition to his activities as a composer Leoš Janáček was a prolific literary personality whose works include not only letters, feuilletons, criticisms, autobiography, ethnographic and pedagogical studies but also numerous articles dealing with music theory. They are unique documents: stimulating, diverse, exciting, and sometimes bewildering. They reflect Janáček's intense involvement with contemporary trends in philosophy, ethnography, physiology, and music theory and his struggles in these worlds; yet they can hardly be found on a single bookshelf outside the Czech Republic (From the Introduction).
