Tendencies in the Lusatian Literature after the Breakthrough of 1989
Languages of publication
The article makes an attempt at defining the directions of development of the Serbo-Lusatian literature after the breakthrough of 1989, using a research paradigm drawn from the publications of Walter Koschmal entitled 'Perspektiven sorbischer Literatur'. In compliance with this model, in the writings of Serbo-Lusatian writers since the 19th century, two lines of development can be distinguished: a conservative and folkloristic, whose traces appear in the concepts of Jurij Brezan and a modern one whose promoter is Róza Domascyna. The authoress refers to the situation of the Serbo-Lusatian minority in the GDR and analyses the threats it faced in the altered geopolitical conditions. Discussing the questions of feminism and postmodernist tendencies, attention is drawn to literary reevaluation, including, among others, a trial to employ the ethnic discourse in a new way, proposed by a young generation of the Serbo-Lusatian writers.
