Abstract [en]

The article’s objective is to analyse the discursive construction of the Czechnation in three cultural magazines, produced by Czech exiles in London duringWWII. The theoretical backbone for this analysis is provided by Laclau andMouffe’s (1985) discourse theory, which in turn supports a discourse-theoreticalre-reading of the literature on the nation, first in general and then in relationto the Czech nation. These three theoretical components support an analysis of650 selected contributions in 36 issues of the three main cultural journals of theCzech London exile: Obzor [Horizon], Kulturní zápisník [Cultural Notebook]and Review. This discourse-theoretical analysis shows the presence, particularityand contingency of a series of internal nodal points (temporal, spatial, linguistic,cultural and popular), in combination with the external nodal point of diversityin relation to outgroups. In the conclusion, the political nature of this construction,which we label the politics of poetry, is emphasized.
