Languages of publication
The goal of the present case study is to help understand the mechanisms used by the official Communist power to control and regulate literary critical production in Slovak literature written in the late 1980s. The author reconstructs a case from the year 1987, which concerns the magazine Romboid. He uses the particular case of contemporary literary life to show that Slovak literature in the late 1980s also featured strong dogmatic and conservative trends persisting in rigid defence of Socialist Realism as the only artistic method acceptable at that time.
