Vladimír Petrík´s library
Languages of publication
The paper Vladimír Petrík´s library is an attempt at „reading“ of a library from the perspective of the relation between the library and the owner. The inheritance left by literary scientist and critic Vladimír Petrík includes over 6000 books, which were accumulated and used by him during his life. Understanding the type, genre, functional and time structures of his library, i.e. the relations between the volumes accumulated in it, enables complementing the already well-known bibliographic profile of the owner, looking at his personality through this kind of specific cultural memory, which library is, understanding oscillation between professional orientation and reading as a personal interest, which becomes a necessity. The analysis of Vladimír Petrík´s library leads to the conclusion that although he was a „man of books“, he was not fetishist about them. They served his main interest, which was literature.
