ABSTRACT

The paper is dedicated to the topic of folk prose at the turn of the 19th and 20th century, in particular the issue of language and genre. Scientific interest in the folk literature launched on European soil since the mid-18th century. With a little delay the collection and study of folk culture gradually developed in our country, and the folk literature was at the forefront. Until then, the folk culture and art had remained beyond the official national culture. Within the national legitimacy and equality of Slovaks in the old kingdom of Hungary were our scholars aware of the importance of folklore, folklore studies and place of ethnology after abolition of cultural and scientific institutions and they organized plans and concepts for the collection and summaries of folk material. The aim of this paper is also to present the personality of the Slovak collector Frantisek Sujansky and characterize the estate of his manuscripts, collectible and editorial work by our research. The paper focuses on the particular preserved folk prose texts of Frantisek Sujansky, it compares editorial variants from language and content point of view, compares his manuscripts and printed pendants, which were published in contemporary newspapers and magazines (Slovenske pohlady, Katolicke noviny, Narodny hlasnik a Narodne noviny). As the folklore texts were often edited when were overwritten and subordinated by cultural and social conventions, the paper tries to find out the extent to which Frantisek Sujansky applied the concept of editorial corrections and answers the question what was the motive of his collectible activity and editorial modification.

Keywords: Folk Prose, Folk Narratives, Frantisek Sujansky, Folklore, Collectors.
