From the essay: "[Jiri Kolar] was then a timid, ineloquent boy, as timid and ineloquent as his poetry-- at first sight, consisting of fragments of phrases, and a disarray of words, but in fact, at a closer look, revealing delicate, lyrical constructions made out of precious matter: a language unspoiled by literature, a language still anonymous, the admirable language of ordinary people."
