Starting with the Great Moravian period, Peter Petro surveys one thousand years of Slovak literature. He examines the medieval, Renaissance, baroque, classical, romantic, realist, and modern periods and highlights the contributions of such writers as Hronský, Hviezdoslav, Kollár, Kukucín, Nedozerský, Papánek, Rúfus, Safárik, Tatarka, Tranovský, Vajanský, and Záborský. Like Czech, Polish, and Ukrainian writing, Slovak literature transcended the merely literary to become an influential political and cultural tool: Slovak writers and poets played an important role in promoting and protecting the culture and language of their people against invading cultures. A History of Slovak Literature will be a welcome addition to the field of Slavic studies.
