Fine, but another source on the Czechoslovak underground samizdat culture of the 1970s must be a paperback book of edited essays I'm reading at the moment: Vaclav Havel: Living in Truth, edited by Jan Vladislaw (Faber & Faber 1989). These essays were originally handed around to friends and friends of friends in typed and cyclostyled manuscript form.

You can here read about an exhibition in Prague about poetry inspired among the Czechoslovak underground by Havel - http://www.radio.cz/en/article/112215

Here's a quote: "A bottle of beer and a rohlík, a kind of Czech bread roll, was what the audience was treated to at the launch of an exhibition about Václav Havel in the poetry of Czech underground authors. Organized by the Václav Havel Library, the show, at Galerie Montmartre in Prague’s Old Town, is an homage to the man who spent more than five years in prison for standing up for Czechoslovakia’s unofficial culture."
