Jiří Reynek (5 July 1929 – 15 October 2014) was a Czech poet and graphic artist. Fluent in French, he translated the works of Henri Pourrat and Francis Jammes.[1] He was the son of Suzanne Renaud and Bohuslav Reynek.[2] Photographer Daniel Reynek was his older brother.[3] The family spent winters in Grenoble and summers in Petrkov,[3] where Reynek spent most of his adult life.[4] The family farm was seized by Germany during World War II, then came under state control after Czechoslovakia transitioned to communism in the 1948 coup d'état.[3]

Reynek was born in Paris, France[5] and died on 15 October 2014, aged 85 in Petrkov, Czech Republic.[3]
