THE RELATIONSHIP OF WORD AND PICTURE IN DOLEZAL´S TRAGEDY (Vztah slova a obrazu v Dolezalovej Tragoedii)
Languages of publication
In the 18th century the authors created platform for a reader to interact in the sphere of visual conceptions. A good example of it is an epic composition Pametna celemu svetu Tragoedia by Augustin Dolezal (The Tragedy, Remembered by the Entire World 1791). Dolezal's literary and linguistically work has also visual dimension. In the chapters dedicated to everyday life (inhabitants and the concept of the earthly world) there is an evident inspiration from Comenius, from his concept of a visible world (Orbis pictus). Dolezal reflected contemporary architectonic art (description of Eden is like a French park) and also portrait fine arts (portrait of a landlord from Liptov). There are also evidences of using the emblematic poetics (so called 'nuda emblemata'). The signal of visualisation appears in description of the world of craftsmen through distinctive poetic adjectives, which are not a sign of classicistic norm, but of new aesthetic paradigm.
