STILUM VERTERE. ON THE EXPLORATION OF STYLE (Stilum vertere (O zkoumani stylu v literarni vede))
Languages of publication
The confrontation of German, French and partially Czech (structuralist) traditions enables one to come to a notion of style, which is suitable for historical exploration and suits the present demands on reflecting on the terms in literary science. However, one has to admit that the exploration of style belongs to non-propositional forms of knowledge. Consequently, some results of literary analysis of style will always be liable to correction. It will always be bound to a 'personality' of the author as well as the interpreter. The notions of personality, as well as the notion of divination, are time-conditioned constructions. Both do not discredit the analysis in any way. On the contrary, the present development in the exploration of literary periods demands a style analysis accompanied by an appropriate reflection.
