Karel Hynek Macha Biography
Karel Hynek Mácha (16 November 1810 - November 5, 1836) was a Czech romantic poet.

His lyrical epic poem Máj (May), which was published in 1836 shortly before his death, was judged by his contemporaries as immoral and a threat to society. His reputation improved after his death and Máj is now regarded as the classic work of Czech Romanticism.

He is buried at the Vysehrad cemetery in Prague, Czech Republic.
