The concept of time in Slovenian history: the case of Slovenian Baroque
Keywords:Slovenian literary history, Baroque, periodisation, Slovenian literature
Time, no doubt represents one of the central literary topics both in general and in relation to particular literary periods, one of them being the baroque period. Time also represents the central axis of literary history and the fundamental principle for its restoration. Peripheral, so-called “weak” literatures have some specific characteristics with regard to the concept of time, since time is sometimes represented not as linear but takes on anachronisms, analepses and prolepses. This paper explores certain forms of anachronisms in the Baroque period of Slovenian literature. Since the 17th century has been regarded as the first mainly aesthetic period in western literature, Slovenian literature, which prior to the age of enlightenment was religious, takes a different turn with the works of various authors (e. g. various anonymous writers, Janez Damascen Dev, Pavel Knobl, France Prešeren, Tomaž Šalamun) and different poetic forms harking back to the artistic models of seicento, in order to be able to reestablish itself as a complete aesthetic creation.
