KRITICKÉ DISKUSIE OSEMDESIATYCH ROKOV NA PÔDE ZVÄZU SLOVENSKÝCH SPISOVATEĽOV
Critical discussions of the 1980s at the Union of Slovak Writers
Languages of publication
In the early 1980s the Union of Slovak Writers witnessed an attempt to hold more discourse-oriented discussions. The article views them against a background of three time horizons – from the perspective of real free democratic discussion after 1989, against a background of the polemics and discussions of the 1960s tending towards free discussion, although not exceeding the contemporary limits of „Socialism with a Human Face“, and against a background of inferior discourse situation in the 1970s. Viewing the critical discussion about the collection of short stories Náprstok (Thimble, 1985) by Dušan Dušek, which took place at the Union of Slovak Writers and was published in the magazine Romboid (1986/6), well demonstrates the contemporary limits of the critical discussions in the 1980s hardly being more than just attempts at decanonized reconfirmation of the notion Socialist Realism.
