The name Ladislav Novák (as an example of dadaists) does not link to the author (1925-1999) but to the football player (born 1931), you might want to change that. Article not bad at all.
Quite a lot more could be said on this topic; anyone with the knowledge to flesh it out? -- April

Bloody unwieldy article name
There is the article English literature, not Literature of United Kingdom; American literature, not Literature of the United States. Unless somebody gives a very good reason why Czech literature should be the only exception from Literature#Literature_by_country_or_language, I'm going to move this within a week. --Malyctenar 10:47, 16 Jul 2004 (UTC)
P. S. Oh, and what the hell are we supposed to do with Bohemian literature?
Comment moved from the article: Please note that the current coverage of Czech literature in Wikipedia is rather sketchy, idiosyncratic and unrepresentative, mixing a few authors best known abroad with those popular with a particular Czech Wikipedist, but not necessarily of paramount importance for the field as a whole. Raising it to a decent academic standard is almost impossible; for reliable information, turn elsewhere - see some products of googling among external links, but even better to offline reference works. At least, the list has been ordered chronologically (by era the centre of given author's work falls into) and expanded by several most unmissable names, entries/stubs for which will be hopefullly added later as time and sources allow.
There is not a single woman writer mentioned in the list of communist-era writers, or on the list of contemporary writers. Shameful! There are plenty of them. I'll try to post a few bios I've written of contemporary Czech women writers. Andree Collier Zaleska 22.214.171.124 15:23, 8 December 2005 (UTC)
I'll be working on a complete revision of this page over the next several months, starting with the earliest literature all the way up to the modern day. I plan on doing sections at a time, so the page will look a little disorganized for a while. Comments on my work will be welcome and appreciated!

Czech Humanism Literature
I think there should be a division about Czech Humanism, because this epoch was very important for it, and we really can't say Daniel Adam z Veleslavína or Jiří Melantrich from Aventino are Hussite writers. Maybe, I will do it later, but I have no time just now. --Zik2 (talk) 16:41, 3 March 2009 (UTC)
According to this article, "Czech literature is the literature written by Czechs, mostly in the Czech language, although other languages like Old Church Slavonic, Latin or German have been also used, especially in the past." According to the article on Bohemian literature, "Bohemian literature is literature of Bohemians (also known as Czechs, in Bohemian Češi or Čechové) and also literature written in Bohemia in other languages (e.g. Latin, German, Greek, Hebrew or Russian)." Looks to me like we have two pages on exactly the same subject. Comments, anyone? --Antiquary (talk) 17:12, 18 May 2015 (UTC)
- In my opinion, article "Bohemian literature" should be deleted or moved here, because "Bohemian" is equal to "Czech" in English, used mainly before WWI. Jirka.h23 (talk) 06:00, 15 August 2015 (UTC)
- I see a point in having a separate Bohemian literature, because Czech literature generally refers to literature in Czech language. Since the country not only had its Latin literature in past, but also - being for many centuries bilingual: Czech and German - had its authors that were significant for German literature (e.g. Franz Kafka). While the term Bohemians can refer also to ethnic Germans that lived in the kingdom of Bohemia and later Czechoslovakia, up until the end of the WW II, the term Czechs would perhaps be better reserved for ethnic Czechs.
The separate existence of "Bohemian literature" article, therefore, has its reason, but NOT in the current state, as the article does not mention any German writing authors of Bohemia (though it does mention Latin works).
