ZRODENIE LEGENDY: MEDZI HURBANOM A VLČKOM
Birth of a legend: Between Hurban and Vlček
Languages of publication
The study deals with the concept of Romanticism formulated by Jaroslav Vlček as it is represented by his literary historical works Literatura na Slovensku, její vznik, rozvoj, význam a úspěchy (Literature in Slovakia, Its Beginning, Development, Meaning and Success, 1881) and Dejiny literatúry slovenskej (The History of Slovak Literature, 1898, 1890). It is seen as the invariant of the monolithic interpretation of the Slovak Romanticism, which has had a well-established tradition in the Slovak studies since the second half of the 20th century, therefore the attention is paid to the description and the process of framing the concept. The essential notion is that of „Štúr´s school“ and its formation, which was canonized as the designation of the Slovak Romanticism. Against a background of that the study examines Vlček´s concept of Romanticism and his way of formulating it in the context of the images of the Slovak Romanticism built up by Slovak Romantic writers with regard to the interpretation by Russian expert in the Slavic studies Anton Budilovič. The goal of the study is to show which sources and traditions, i.e. the earlier views of literary history, gave rise to the monolithic concept of Romanticism represented by Jaroslav Vlček´s literary historical concept. The secondary goal of the study is to address selected partial problems concerning literary historical activities related to the Slovak Romanticism as well as the writing of history in general.
