During the years of building a new order after World War II, even in times of anticipation of ideological repression of confession, talented writers stood out from the crowd as a new hope for Slovak Catholic writings. In this context of historical events, the name of a poet who wrote quiet and condensed lines resonated: Ján Motulko. Ján Motulko, a thoughtful intellectual and introvert, created a certain correlating relationship and bond with modern Catholic poets of his era, mainly through his poetry (in its themes, poetic style, confessions, etc.). However, for his entire life he vehemently denied any affiliation with Slovak Catholic modern literary groups. Literary critics noticed his connection with them, but due to the nuances of the period, their commentaries were first considered too universal and then labelled as a socially undesirable. After the Velvet Revolution in November 1989, they were often formulated only based on an explicitly specified analogy. Only a small part of them was based on an effort at rehabilitation and republishing of Motulko's work from original text analysis, and did not just copy dictionary and encyclopaedic portrait formulations.
