(Slovak title: Inspirativny impulz pre vyskum starsej slovenskej literatury (Nogeho pokus o nacrt problematiky vyvinu umeleckej prozy v slovenskej literature predklasicistickeho obdobia)). Julius Noge's study Prvky umeleckej prozy v slovenskej literature predklasicistickeho obdobia (Pokus o nacrt problematiky), which was published in the magazine Slovenska literatura (Slovak Literature)in 1968, can be seen as an interesting attempt to question the opinion that the fiction of Slovak Pre-Classicism had been limited by factuality. He emphasized the need for a new view of the quality of less representative prose genres, which were the substantial part of the literary production of that time, while he accented the necessity of respecting their syncretic character. He also drew attention to the necessity of revising the functions of poetry genres, or individual poetic texts of early literary periods. He showed that there is an urgent need to do new research on pre-Stur literature free from traditional assessments, which would point out the special features of the Slovak literature evolution, and the way to clarify the process of genetic formation of Slovak fiction.
