Babicka is a novella written by Czech writer Bozena Nemcova in
1855. It is her most popular work and is regarded as a classic
piece of Czech literature. The book describes an idealised account
of the author's childhood. The plot weaves together a remembrance
of the agrarian rhythm of life with the love stories of several
women, which reveal more of the history and customs of that area.
The principal action revolves around the love lives of Viktorka,
Kristla, and the Countess.
