Languages of publication
The study deals with forgotten Czech writer Vojtìch Rakous (1862–1935). His short stories were published in periodicals of Czech-Jewish assimilative movement from the 80ies of the 19th century. They were assembled first in thin book Doma (1897) and then in representative anthology Vojkoviètí a pøespolní (1910), in 1926 widened in three parts. This anthology includes seven composed cycles with heroes of Jewish origine. The common life with majority Christian society is described without any conflicts, with harmonious traits. The author of study asks how much the representation of such life between two nations and two rival religions in the God is Rakous´ intention or it is in charge of real historical situation.
