But I have to go on
Miloš Hoznauer was born on 21st September, 1929 in a poor village family. Due to good cadre report a „son of an assistant worker“ could despite minor political incidents finish the secondary school and even study Czech and Russian language at the high school. Yet from his military service he was labelled „renegade“ and „betrayer of working class“. He started teaching, but was often chaning school due to various political scrapes. He tried to lead his students to independent thinking and used unusual forms in his classes. In 1960s he started writing in the Literary newspaper. He critisites ideological rigidity at schools, repeating phrases by students without any thinking, byrocratical educational system. He worked for the Czech television, and was supposed to lead the department of new forms at the ministry of education. Following August 1968 he could not publish anything, but could still teach. All through normalisation he taught about the banned literature, as one of the parents was providing him exile production. Following the velvet revolution the readers asked for him to write the book on Czech literature after 1945. Since 1990s he wrote several textbooks and readers, but also original texts; in 2004 an autobiographical book called Journey into the depths of the teacher´s soul was published; in 2015 a collection of poems called The old man in wait. Now he is preparing the Shipping trunk.
