ABSTRACT

In Slovakia the beginnings of systematic interest in folklore and culture are related to the Enlightenment or to the early periods of Slovak National Revival. The first Slovak sources documenting the systematic and conceptual interest in prosaic folklore, as presented by the German romantic school and which received a great deal of appreciation on a European scale in the form of writing and editing, was in the 1840s. As in other areas of scientific interest, the same methodological principle was applied here and folk narratives were considered as the primary source of reconstruction of the national history. The most pressing political issues to which all the efforts of Slovak educators were subjected during this period, were the national eligibility and equality of Slovaks within old kingdom of Hungary. Our educators were aware of the importance of folklore and an unmistakable place of folklore and ethnography. The goal of the entire era of national legitimacy and equality was to obtain and record as much folk material as possible. Calls for collecting folk material were formulated and collecting plans were outlined to collect as much material as possible for ethnographic or folkloristic research. The role of folk prose research is to truthfully display the life of the nation, to record its function in the broadest possible spectrum and context.

Keywords: Literature, Folk Narratives, Culture, Folklore Studies.
