Biography

Eliška Krásnohorská (18 November 1847 in Prague – 26 November 1926 in Prague) was a Czech feminist author. She was introduced to literature and feminism by Karolína Světlá. She wrote works of lyric poetry and literary criticism, however, she is usually associated with children's literature and translations, including works by Pushkin, Mickiewicz and Byron.

Krásnohorská wrote the libretti for four operas by Bedřich Smetana: The Kiss, The Secret, The Devil's Wall and Viola. She also wrote the libretto for Zdeněk Fibich's opera Blaník (Fibich).

In 1890 Krásnohorská founded the Minerva School in Prague, the first gymnasium for girls in the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Its language of instruction was Czech.
