(Thematization of the Motif of Svätopluk’s Three Rods in Slovak Legends)
Abstract: The subject of the article is to study the motif of three Svätopluk‘s rods in Slovak legends. Textual analysis, interpretation and comparison are used to present the ways of grasping the issue in the Slovak literary context. The first literary approach to the processing of the legend can be found in the work of Jozef Cíger Hronský, later on, it is present in legends by Ľudovít Janota, Ján Domasta and Milan Ferko. Specific legends will undergo textual analysis and the means and methods by which the authors achieve particular atmosphere of the time in which the legends are set will be explored. Expected educational intent of the legend is modified by each author in an original way. The article also deals with the question of how the motif of Svätopluk‘s rods becomes a part of the literary context. At the same time, other examples of texts related to the motif of three Svatopluk‘s rods as part of the narrative will be discussed and analysed.
