Due to his style, ability to express his ideas and content significance of his works Janáček's literary work became an important part of the Czech literature. In both literary and musical work, in writing and composing, Janáček is always original, distinctive, straightforward, uncompromising, despite resistance and lack of understanding, always standing up for his truth.
