Samizdat edition of Havel’s 1985 play, Pokoušení (Temptation). With original linocut illustrations by Viktor Karlík.

Havel wrote the play Temptation during the first part of the 80s when he was imprisoned three times for a total of almost five years under the Communist regime. Since his works were banned in Czechoslovakia, and could not be performed, his play appeared only in samizdat edition and was premiered in a German translation in Vienna in 1986.
