ČESKÁ POČÍTAČOVĚ GENEROVANÁ LITERATURA A OTÁZKA AUTORSTVÍ LITERÁRNÍHO TEXTU
Czech computer-generated literature and the question of authorship of the literary text
Languages of publication
Since the end of the 1950s, computer-generated literary texts have been a marginal but ever-present part of many national literatures including the Czech one. This study primarily charts the history of this phenomenon on the Czech cultural scene. Its material scope extends from experiments in the 1960s (by Jiří Levý and Karel Pala) and the metaliterary reflections of Jiří Drašnar with computer-distorted texts to contemporary conceptual procedures (e. g. glitch aesthetics in Impromptu by Roman Haisel) and literary experiments with artificial intelligence. Attention is also focused on its forays into pop culture (Google poetry). More general questions on the authorship of literary texts in particular are then formulated, and a proposed pluralist conception of authorship as a collective of human and technological actors is presented, based on analysis of generative literature output.
