MEDZI HISTORICKÝM FAKTOM A ESTETICKOU IMAGINÁCIOU
Between historical fact and aesthetic imagination
Languages of publication
Historical plays about the protagonists of the national revival in the 19th century arise from the literary and scholarly ambitions of the Slovak author, playwright, fiction writer, literature and theatre scholar Karol Horák. In basic features, the study characterizes and summarizes the poetical and aesthetic specifics, characteristics and dramatic character of Horák’s works, which focus on both the leaders of the Slovak national movement (Ľudovít Štúr and Jozef Miloslav Hurban) and other players in the events of this period (Jonáš Záborský, Samo Bohdan Hroboň, Janko Kráľ). In the context of Slovak drama the mentioned group of dramas can be read separately, but also as a dynamic historical-developmental process of the authorial dramatic method. In the broader sense, they are historical plays, and in the narrower sense, they are unconventional biographical historical plays in which the author values facts and ads nuances, colours and individualizing features to them, which reflect the outer reality and acquire the status of drama essays.
