- ItemVýpravy do země jiných vad. Český (ne)romantizmus očima polských publicistů(Wydawnictwo Rys (nr 1), 2011) Pešina, JanOne of so called “proprietes of a national characte“, which in Poland is sometimes stereotypically attributed to the Czechs, is a realistic or even pragmatic outlook on life, opposite to a Polish national romantic philosophy. This essay is devoted to the problem of the above mentioned romantism and realism as the way of thinking/mental state. On the base of Polish books published in the previous decade, dedicated to the modern Czech history, society and the wide understood culture, we have tried to answer the question, if and how Polish authors address the above mentioned stereotypical perception of the southern neighbour. It was displayed, that the most of the investigated authors, by choosing unique, romantic subjects and ideas, try to suppress the Polish stereotypical images of the Czechs.
- ItemImagi/nacija. Neoromantičarski koncepti imaginacije u tekstovima hrvatskog narodnog preporoda i u pjesništvu Domovinskog rata(Wydawnictwo Rys (nr 1), 2011) Žužul, IvanaThe paper attempts to shed light on the concept of imagination and its formative role in imagining collective identities such as gender, religion or nation in literary, journalistic and programmatical texts written by Croatian revivers, as well as in the poetry of the Croatian War of Independence. Here, the concept of imagination is conceived as a field criss-crossed by contradictions selectively used by the revivers and contemporary Croatian poets in the 1990's, in order to achieve certain political goals. According to need, they use it to reconcile resemblances with differences, general with particular or else for the purpose of generating hegemonistic symbols or organic unity of culture/nation, they erase divisions, ignoring and abolishing othernesses.
- ItemTeološki nomadizam. Po/etika i politika zazorne sublimnostiu pjesništvu Delimira Rešickog(Wydawnictwo Rys (nr 1), 2011) Vuković, TvrtkoThe poetry written by the Croatian poet Delimir Rešicki is associated with some of the more influential concepts of the Romantic poets. The paper analyzes the method by which Rešicki develops Christlike motives as a model of shaping the authorial concept and comprehending the poetic identity associated with the idea of a (divine) Genius. The focus is therefore placed on two textual strategies: stylizing the lyrical subject as an urban model and representing the idea of nomadism as the predominant existential form. The phrase “theological nomadism” is hereby used to relate the convergence of Rešicki’s lyrical poetry and Romanticism to some of the recent ethical and political debates in the field of theory.
- ItemOrtografia elitarna czy egalitarna? Romantyczne dylematy(Wydawnictwo Rys (nr 1), 2011) Stęplewski, ArturSpelling is not just a problem for students, it is also a serious political issue. This especially concerns the time when the standard literary languages are formed. The problem of spelling also appears when there are important social changes, revolutions, wars, and a change of political system. One introduces spelling democratization for all members of the community or, conversely, spelling becomes an elite, intended for a narrow audience. The article presents the problem of spelling in Poland and Czech (Bohemia) in the 19th century and nowadays.
- ItemMáchowskie fascynacje i inspiracje Jana Čepa(Wydawnictwo Rys (nr 1), 2011) Seidel-Mączyńska, AleksandraAmong various Čep’s literary fascinations, Karel Hynek Mácha retains an important place. The Romantic writer (Mácha) and the 20th century Catholic novelist (Čep) are connected mainly by the same conception of a man in his relationship with the world and God. They share the same approach towards the passing of time, which in turn seems to be the key to being and understanding existence. The fascination dedicated to Mácha’s writing seems to conceal the vision of poets and source of creation shared by both the authors. Art and artists take on a specific role, which results from the particular spiritual predispositions of the author and from his metaphysical anxiety, which has its roots in the perception of mystery surrounding humankind and the world.
