Tomb of Marie
| Opening hours
In a small village of Zdislavice, a classicism tomb of the counts Dubský can be found. The local manor house served as their summer residence. The tomb is a place of the eternal rest of an Austrian writer, countess Marie von Ebner-Eschenbach, née Dubská a bachelor woman, who was born in Zdislavice on the 13th of September in 1830 and died on the 12th of March in Vienna. Influenced by significant Austrian men of lettres (Grillparzer, Halm, Hebell, etc) she started to write drama, prose poetry and short stories, after settling in Vienna, where she had already been living permanantly since 1836. In her novels and short stories (Two Countesses, Lotti Clockmaker, Common Child, Late-born, Irretrievable Guilt, Unfaithful, Old School, Village and Castle Stories, Late Autumn, etc.), appreciated for their exquisite language, she depicts the life of different social classes from the nobility to the rustic people with a lot of realism and socio-psychological accents. Her memoirs interpret an insight into the culture and society of the Monarchy in the second half of the 19th century and shows a great lot of life philosophy of this writer, unfamiliar in our country and often compared to Božena Němcová.
