Hranice viditelného a neviditelného - k reflexi metafyzična v literatuře
Borders of the Visibile and Invisible – on the Reflection of the Metaphysical in Literature
Languages of publication
Metaphysical phenomena and religious experiences have been a subject of literature long since. In this text we point to certain types of literary treatement of the supernatural nowadays, keeping in mind that present times are sceptical towards it. The examples are taken from Czech spiritually orientated authors of the 1st half of the 20th century: J.Š. Baar, J. Èep, J. Durych. We observe how three motives – mysterious communion of the dead and alive, mystical ecstasy during a prayer and postmortal existence of the human soul – are reflected in their texts, while this reflection is based on their spiritual experience.
