Josef Václav Frič (1829–1890)

Frič, Josef Václav (frich). A Czech journalist, dramatist, agitator, and poet; born in Prague, Sept. 5, 1829; died there, Oct. 14, 1890. Political activity and journalistic independence resulted in long exile. His place in his country’s literature is due to ‘Laments of the Bohemian Crown’ (1868), a political pamphlet; ‘The Vampire’ (1849), a patriotic poem; ‘Ulric von Hutten’ and ‘Mazeppa,’ dramas; and various other productions.
