Socialist-Realistic Consistency (Companionable Summers)

This paper deals with a question of existentialism (or non-existentialism) in the novel Družné letá (Companionable Summers) written by Dominik Tatarka. The study directly refers to the monograph Dominik Tatarka in the Context of Existentialism (M. Antošová), where we focused on the significant “diapason” of Tatarka ́s works through the optics of existentialism. We are not dealing with the texts which Dominik Tatarka wrote in the spirit of socialist realist method and would require a special approach for logical and system reasons. This study has an ambition to cover this gap at least from one side and exactly for these reasons the interpretation analysis (in correlation with a comparison aspect) of the socialist realist work Družné letá (Companionable Summers) through existentialist sight becomes its subject.


Key words:

Atheistic existentialism. Death. Existentialism. G. Marcel. Christian existentialism. J. P. Sartre. Motive. Naturalism. Socialist realism.
