A contribution from the conference 'The Second Avant-garde' (part of the grant-funded project 'The Myths, Language, and Taboos of the Czech Post-Avant-garde from the Forties to the Sixties'), which was held on 23 October 2007. The article focuses on Prolegomena poezie (Prolegomena to poetry, 1951), a collection of verse by Zbynek Havlicek (1922-1969), arguing that he was a conscious continuator of the Avant-garde, which in the 1950s objected to the sanctioned trend in art. After the article puts the collection in the context of the times, it considers several essential features of the collection - the bonding of a theoretical text and verse, where 'each poem is also an interpretation'; stream of consciousness (where the article points to the fact that in his verse Havlicek perceives consciousness as a 'paralytic system'); and subjectivity (where the article points out that, unlike most verse of the period, 'emotional tension' is the chief subject of the poet's work.
