Abstract

The long stay of writers in emigration caused stylistic changes in their language. They preferred more general themes, existential problems to Czech or any other special local ones (especially if they had earlier such inclination, like Fischl, partly also Hostovský or Kundera). They (mainly Fischl) liked creating a story out of an actual place and time. Škvorecký, a born narrator, who was applying the narrative devices of modern realistic prose from the beginning of his carreer, followed another strategy. Partly he profited from the experiences gained in his second homeland, partly (later) he turned to historical themes about Czechs who had stayed or lived on the American continent. The life isolated from home changed the literary language of emigrants. Most authors wrote in Czech also in exterland, but their style became different. Those who lived in foreign countries for several decades used a highly literary language. The emigrants after 1968 wrote in “common Czech” (obecná čeština), slang or even in vernacular. Škvorecký's style has also been saturated by Anglo-Czech elements characteristic for Czech emigrants living in English speaking countries. Kundera, for the insufficient number of Czech readers in reach, turned more and more to French and world public. He chose a style easy for translation. From the middle of the '90s he has been writing mostly in French.
