POLEMIKA O ANJELSKÝCH ZEMIACH AKO LITERÁRNOHISTORICKÝ PROBLÉM
Polemic over the angel lands as a literary-historical issue
Languages of publication
The subject of the study is an analysis of historiographic position of Jozef Felix´s article published in 1946 O nové cesty v próze alebo problém „anjelských zemí“ v našej literatúre (After New Ways in Prose or the Issue of „Angel Lands“ in Our Literature) and the polemic it caused at that time. The author focuses on revealing the reasons which allowed Slovak Marxist literary historiography to label Felix´s article as the starting point when Slovak after-war prose „definitely leant towards“ Socialist Realism. The author opposes this literary-historical construct by claiming that Felix´s article and the related polemic were a part of the argument about what is modern in the Slovak literature in 1946, and not a part of the argument between the Modern Slovak literature and the Literature of Socialist Realism. The latter argument arose only subsequently and it was prompted by the political situation in Czechoslovakia in 1948.
