The study answers the essential question whether the Nitra School can stand its ground in the contemporary communication models of literary translation. The author works with postmodern texts translated from Hungarian into Slovak (mainly prose by Peter Esterházy). Through the individual shift she reveals different options for translation of many parameters, such as questioning authorship identity, hybridity, relativity of language, cultural memory of a nation, misleading explicativeness as a popular postmodern strategy, etc. The study shows the potential of the new categories of expression (e. g. coolness, allusiveness, fragmentariness of expression, provocativeness, sensuality of expression, etc.).
