'HOW IT BUBBLED IN THE NICE SPIRIT OF STUR...' TO 'DISCUSSION' ON A MONOGRAPH OF L. STUR'S PERSONALITY ('Ako to klokocom vrelo v peknom duchu Sturovom...' K 'diskusii' o monografickom spracovani osobnosti L. Stura)
The article shows that from the 19th century until now, reflections has been appearing on a form of adequate monographic depiction on Ludovit Stur (1815-1856), the main personality of the Slovak national revival. According to the author's opinion the biggest problem of the already existing monographs was that they provided only a one-side ideological explanation, but Stur's various activities cannot be reduced to one common ideological platform. The result of such reduction is a constant feeling of non complexity, dissatisfaction, and tendentiousness of both cultural interpretations and interpretations of literary scholarship concerning Stur's impact. The author suggests respecting Stur's ambiguity in his works and also positive, semantically unreduced quality. He also proposes resigning on seeking of common variable quantity in the series of Stur's cognitive mistakes and discontinuities unlike he rather recommends an approach that introduces Stur's work and life as an artistic project, as directional performance, in which ascetic love to excellence is to dominate over.
