The intention of the study is in the background of the stylistic and functional characteristics in realisation of the captions and closings in the literary tales of the 19th c. to point out those features of the compositional mean that we could evaluate as a specific for the literary tales of the mentioned period. The authoress analysed the captions and closings in the tales of three collections of the tales published in the 19th c.: 'Slovenske povesti Jana Francisciho' (Slovak Fables by Jan Francisci, 1845), 'Slovenske povesti Augustina Horislava Skultetyho and Pavla Dobsinskeho' (Slovak Fables by Augustin Horislav Skultety and Pavol Dobsinsky,1858-1861) and 'Prostonarodnych slovenskych povesti Pavla Dobsinskeho' (Folk Slovak Fables by Pavol Dobsinsky, 1880-1883). In the stylistically functional analysis the authoress regarded the way how the formula were presented in the folk proses (resource: so called Wolman's catalogue of folk tales). The realised comparative analysis results in information that formulas in the literary tales differ from the formulas in the folk tales by higher degree of stylisation filling the formal frame of a formula with new original content, increasing and advancing functionality of a formula (formula as a poetic decoration, folk artefact). Also within particular collection the authoress recorded the differences in the stylistic level and functional presentation as well as a generic determination. These differences concern extension of the collection, their generic content, way of literary genesis of the texts and goals followed by their editors. While e.g. Francisci's collection reflects generic representation of the formula the same as we can find in the folk tales, Dobsinsky's collection illustrates a wide scale of formula creational methods. The rhetoric formula are the most interesting, as in their cases it is possible to demonstrate very clearly differences between folk and literary way of framing the tales.
