CHAPTER 3

Czechs and Slavs:
The Time of Kollár and Jungmann

The second phase of our national revival / The period of
Kollár and Jungmann (1810-1848)

The key figure of the second stage of our renascence—and its most characteristic representative—was Kollár. Our remarks about Kollár apply to a large extent to the whole period, which can be approximately dated to begin with the publication of Jungmann's translation of Paradise Lost (1811) and to end with the year 1848.

There was a rapid growth in the volume of scholarly work during this period, often at the expense of quality. In many cases an unseemly hurry is evident which resulted in superficiality.

History and linguistic studies of course received major emphasis. Palacký became the leader and organizer of work in these areas, and he strove with remarkable energy to satisfy the "spiritual hunger" of the people—a task that Dobrovský despaired of fulfilling. At the start of this epoch Palacký was still preparing himself for his future role, and the task of advising and leading the younger generation fell to Jungmann. Jungmann represented a different facet of the mentality of this generation than did Kollár.
