ANTHROPONYMS AND TOPONYMS IN SHORT STORIES BY KAREL VACLAV RAIS
Languages of publication
Karel V. Rais is an exemplary representative of realism not only in poetics but also in selection and use of proper names. The action in his short stories takes place in an authentic landscape, the setting itself having either the authentic or a realistic name. The characters, as well as the individuals mentioned in the characters’ speech, bear common names and realistic, often even regionally typical surnames. In the characters’ speech, and to a large extent in the narrator’s part, they are referred to by hypocorisms and unofficial surname forms.
