Languages of publication
The author looks at transformation of the Slovak literature after 1989 in a context of perception of changing collection of romantic myth, the perception of one's own identity and, consequently, the modification of the so-called national character. The aim of this paper is to show, describe and analyse Peter Pišťanek’s short story Mladý Dônč as an example of demythologizing tendences in Slovak prose in the 90s. The question is approached from comparative angle: author looks for links between the structure of the story Mladý Dônč, and hagiographic legends, fairy magic model and traditional Slovak legends of Juraj Janosik. Pišťanek’s ironic approach to the national mythology concerns primarily such its component like idealization of the rural Slovak family or position occupied by folklore in whole 19th century Slovak culture.
