Keywords Slovak literature; tinker; the motif of home
Description The mutual development of Czech-Slovak relations naturally led to the emergence of literary works with home as the main theme. The arabesque, Pomněnky z Roztěže by Josef Kajetán Tyl, also falls into the period of 19th century. After the unpleasant relationship experience a Slovak tinker loses the meaning of life and feeling of having a home. Being lonely, he wanders around missing his homeland, thinking of his family, childhood and home village. However, on the mental side, the homeland was represented by his love to Hanka and their future plans. The unfulfilled love is ultimately existentially and personally liquidating for the tinker, who lost his home, understood not only as a physical place.
