Vera Chase Wikipedia
Věra Chase (born 1970) is a Czech translator and author of poetry and fiction. She lives and works in Prague.
Chase was raised in Prague in a literary family.
Chase's work has been called playful and "intensely physical" by Radio Prague.
Chase's poetry was used as the basis for the title song on the eponymous album, Elida, by Iva Bittová and Bang on a Can All Stars. Bittová says that she was inspired by the poem and its sense of eroticism and humor.
Chase was recognized for her writing with a 1997 Czech Book award and a 1998 Knižní klub award. Also in October 1997, Chase gave a lecture at Rutgers University. Her lecture, given with Karen von Kunes was called "Smuggling Verses: Czech Poetry Today."Bodypainting/Telokresba, bi-lingual short-story and poetry collection, Prague 1997
