Modernistická kronika jako poznání jiného
Modernist chronicle as a way to understand to the another
Languages of publication
During the epoch at the turn of the 20th century — known in the Hispanic area as modernism — the writers had to look for other ways how to make art and gain some money. The solution was often found in journalism, where a new genre appeared: the modernist chronicle. Despite the fact the newspapers were symbols of transitoriness the modernists tried even there to create a beautiful, artistic prose which would reflect the main questions and fears of that period. And the authors of chronicles were the key figures of Hispanoamerican modernism like José Martí and Rubén Darío. The modernist chronicle became an instrument of presentation of new, unknown and rare experiences and also a way how to interpret the modern world and human existence.
