Follow the adventures of Sharp-Ears, the enchanting heroine of Rudolf Tesnohlidek's classic Czech novel The Cunning Little Vixen. Deftly poised between poetry and farce, The Cunning Little Vixen focus on two characters, the forester Bartos, a man coming to grips with nature, and Vixen Sharp-Ears, an innocent who abandons innocence in order to survive. The book is 165 pages with an afterword by Robert T. Jones.
Rudolf Tesnohlidek, a journalist in the Moravian city of Brno, wrote The Cunning Little Vixen as a newspaper serial, fitting it to student sketches by the artist Sanislav Lolek.
