Two Plays by Karel ?apek: R.U.R. (Rossum's Universal Robots) & The Robber
"Two stage plays, translated from the Czech, both originally published in 1920. R.U.R is an early science fiction play about the Robots, created by scientists, revolting and taking over the world. The word Robot first appeared in this work and was since adopted universally. The robber is a romantic comedy/drama, about a young adventurer infatuating an elderly professor's daughter and taking over all his possessions. The play is set in a small Bohemian village."--Provided by publisher.
