Zvěstovatelka apokalypsy. Oriana Fallaci a reflexe její tvorby v českém publicistickém diskursu počátku 21. století
Harbinger of the Apocalypse. Oriana Fallaci and Reflections of her Work in Early 21st Century Czech Journalistic Discourse
Languages of publication
This paper focuses on reflections of the work of world-famous journalist and writer Oriana Fallaci (1929–2006) in Czech journalism after 2001. Fallaci went down in the history of journalism primarily as the author of interviews with prominent politicians and reports from the majority of armed conflicts during the latter half of the 20th century, as well as for her rejection of political correctness in her communications. After the terrorist attacks on 11th September 2001 she adopted an uncompromisingly critical stance towards Islam, which she incorporated in the text of The Rage and the Pride, a work that provoked conflicting reactions in Czech journalism, from impartial references on the subject to the adoption of personal stances by Czech authors with personal experience of life in European countries with substantial Muslim minorities and interpretation of Fallaciʼs opinions in terms of veneration for European conservative values.
