Teorie fikčních světů a genologie
Theory of Fictional Worlds and Genology
Languages of publication
The article examines the possibility and the merits of a dialogue between genology and the theory of fictional worlds. It focuses particularly on the areas where Czech or Czech-related theory of fictional worlds (Zuska, Doležel, Traillová) offers a typology of fictional worlds, and it evaluates the potential application of such typology in genology. The types of fictional worlds, or the groups of texts defined by these types, cannot be seen quite as genological units (taxons), but they can play an important role for genology as the s.c. modus.
