Languages of publication
The aim of this study is not a redundant accumulation of different opinions or exhausting cross-section of all present literary critical evaluations of the epos Cirillo-Metodiada, but, especially, reflective and problematic viewing on selected facts influencing the reception of this work in past and nowadays. Therefore, the first part of the study outlines the question of usefulness or uselessness of the interpretative returns to works of literary past. In that manner we create the platform for the second part in which we try to notice discrepancy between the author’s intention of Ján Hollý and incomplete grip of this intention by readers and cultural public of the particular era. We base from the well-known terminology of Umberto Eco which represents the discrepancy between the author’s and reader’s intention, while independently from both of these intentions persist the intention of the literary text itself. In the third part we think about the epos Cirillo-Metodiada in context of the efforts for an intra literary translation of the work of Ján Hollý, while the motivation we see in its updating and also accessing to wider base of readers.
