Popis / Abstract:

What characterizes the situation in Slovak arts in the 1950s is the rapid changes ofthe ideological and cultural-political ťrameworks. At the beginning of the decade it is the repressive way of forging Socialist Realism, in the rniddle of it the liberalization stimulated by the Krushchev thaw and at the end the restoration of the order, which was supported by the examinations oť the party and civil loyalty in the year 1958. The period of tirne after the Hungarian and Poznan revolutions in 1956 featured an increase in censorship in Slovakia, which was related to the domestic political power struggle. The goal of the article is to reveal the inner tensions oť the J 950s, to outline the power mechanisms of hindering the society liberalization and to vividly capture the contradictions oť the situation in Slovakia in this particular period of tirne using the unpublished piece of writing Ná/; spoloc'n_ý predok Kukučín /Our Common Ancestor Kukučín/ by Dominik Tatarka, seized in J 957 and discovered in an archive. The specific feature of the ti mes was using the so called Burgeois Nationalist card. The study builds on archive research of others and al so brings the author' s own. When reconstructing the transformation of Tatarka' s poetics from the hardcore Socialist Realisrn doctrine to its softer versions, the author pays attention to the contemporary reflection ofTatarka' s works in the critical clashes with Alexander Matuška, the dominant figure of that period of time. As for prose, the initiation role was played by Tatarka' s travel book Človek na cestách (A Travelling Man, 1957), which was not spared from censorship either. The characteristics of the era necessarily include the life in Slovak literary institutions, the activity of the lnstitute of Literary Science, Slovak Academy of Sciences, as a tool of forging the desired fom1 of the classic literary heritage, the publishing activities, and the activity of the Union of Czechoslovak writers. The study operates with some writings unknown until now and brings characteristics oť the ti mes and Tatarka' s work in a new context.
