Literary geography: the problem of Mácha’s landscapes
Languages of publication
The article analyzes literary landscape in the work of Karel Hynek Mácha, specifically, it focuses on the way in which the landscape in the poem Máj and in the prose Cikáni has been interpreted through history. Using specific interpretative case studies, it illustrates the chronological change in the interpretation of Mácha’s landscape, which range from the first attempts to reconcile literary landscape with real topographies to the increasing independence of the literary representation. The author of the article interprets mimetic reading of Mácha’s landscapes as an expression of the contemporary effort to strengthen the consciousness of national self-identity based on a cultural continuity demarcated not only historically but also territorially.
