Abstract:

The Slovak Romantic Movement arises in a time when classicism is in its decline in European art and philosophical idealism and rational knowledge are giving way to intuition, spontaneity and wild imagination. Modern aesthetic and artistic impulses gain popularity in Slovakia in the 1830s and meet with a positive response from the young generation of lycйe-students in Bratislava, Levoиa and Kežmarok. The gradual transition to the aesthetics and poetics of romanticism in the end of the 1930s and the beginning of the 1940s brings about a number of metamorphoses in the cultural-historical consciousness of the Slovak romantic author, who, in the spirit of Štúr’s ideal for “unity of spirit and matter”, creates distinctive romantic norms. He is inspired both by intuitively-emotional impulses and by his own historical destiny, by folk literature, by national idiosyncrasies and the need for literary, cultural and spiritual identification.
