DVAKRÁT „METODOLOGICKÁ POVIEDKA“ (RUDOLF SLOBODA, PAVEL VILIKOVSKÝ)
Two times „methodological short story“ (Rudolf Sloboda, Pavel Vilikovský)
Languages of publication
The 1960s meant an important cultural U-turn from the realistic method of depiction to alternative approaches and means of expression in Slovak art and literature, too. The decade brought new classification of values as well as a new philosophical view of the reality. In the conditions of our country the anthropocentric pattern of the world´s depiction came into use, the human became the centre of its attention. The key prosaic works written in this period confirm the use of the anthropocentric pattern and they go even further benefitting from it in various ways and establishing individual styles of their authors. Rudolf Sloboda and Pavel Vilikovský used short prosaic works of the late 1960s to demonstrate new text strategies involving readers in creating a text experience. The side effect of such efforts, as the present study tries to show, is not only spontaneous presence of relevant poet logical and philosophical affinities with the contemporary European literature (new novel) but also a modified relationship to artistic self-referentiality of a literary text (writing as an alternative to the reality).
