„NAPAJEDENÝ ROJ SRŠŇOV“. NADREALISTI V MEDZIGENERAČNÝCH SPOROCH
„Furious swarm of hornets“. Slovak Surrealists in their intergenerational arguments
Languages of publication
The paper deals with the intergenerational arguments between the authors of Surrealism (along with their generation critics) and the representatives of the older generation, Ján Poničan in particular. An attention is paid especially to the issue of anti-fascist attitudes of the Surrealists as regards the almanac “Áno a nie” and their relationship with Janko Kráľ as a source of inspiration. Particular extracts of the contemporary polemics were used to trace the ambivalent attitudes of the both sides involved in the intergenerational argument, which shows that the problem in question is not black and white and can be viewed in different ways. What is important is the explicit declaration of youth by the Surrealist poets, which can directly be linked to the emblematic motif of youth and desire in Surrealism as well as the opposition stance typical of all the Avantgarde movements.
