The radical Czech writer Karel Sabina published Básně (Poems, 1841), but his most significant poetry was not even submitted to censorship and thus was never printed. Sabina's 6-volume novel Husité (The Hussites) was turned down by censorship five times. The author re-wrote it and started publishing it in instalments under a different title in 1844, but censorship stopped the publication in mid-stream. In 1848, Sabina worked as a journalist and took part in radical political activity. From May 1849 he was fiercely interrogated by the police and was subsequently sentenced to death. The sentence was commuted to 18 years of imprisonment, he was released from prison in 1857.
