Smějova slezská trilogie: strategie přepisu
Směja’s Silesian Trilogy: Strategy of Rewriting
Languages of publication
The study deals with trilogy from Silesian village of regional writer Fran Směja: Troubled Stream (Kalný proud, 1933), What a Pity of the Country (Škoda té země, 1947), Accusation (Obžaloba, manuscript 1968). The time interval between the individual novels of the cycle leads to the need to „rewrite” the original plan in order to conform to the contemporary semantic frameworks. Thus we analyse the growing ideology and at the same time also weakening literariness (manifested through expressive imagery). The analyses present the prose of F. Směja as a whole and identify its important characteristics: schematism, didactism, fabulation insufficiency, little attention paid to surroundings and also its grandiloquence.
