Galicia – Joseph Roth’s Creative Inspiration
Languages of publication
In his article „Galicia – Joseph Roth’s Creative Inspiration” the author stresses the influence of his childhood and young age on his work. It is multicultural Galicia which was the inspiration, particularly the Jewish culture and multinationality of the Habsburg Monarchy. The author distinguishes three periods in Roth’s life – love of Galicia, escape from it and coming back to his love. The role of family Brody is especially stressed – this place carries throughout his masterpieces. The author exposes Polish elements in Roth’s work and his friendships and contacts with other Polish writers like Józef Wittlin, Bruno Schultz and Julian Tuwim. The author discovers the everlasting truth – to find oneself an realize one’s life’s goals both the feeling of alienation and sense of one’s fatherland is important.
