(p.265) 17 Slovene Literature Since 1990
After Yugoslavia

Alojzija Zupan Sosič

Stanford University Press

Slovene literature since 1990 has been characterized as post-Yugoslav, postcommunist, postindependence, transitional, and postmodern literature; modernist and postmodernist literature; literary eclecticism, new emotionality, and transrealism. Out of these sociological, culturological, and literary labels, this chapter argues that literary eclecticism, new emotionality, and transrealism are most useful for understanding Slovene literature today. Literary eclecticism recognizes the heterogeneous nature of recent Slovene literature with regard to different trends and poetics, while new emotionality relates to the shaping of personal identity and a new type of feeling shown by the literary subject. Finally, this chapter suggests that transrealism best describes Slovene literature since 1990, stressing the continuing prevalence of a realistic technique, method, and style.

Keywords:   postcommunist literature, postmodernism, “new shallowness,” bestsellers, realistic novel, literary eclecticism, new emotionality, transrealism, neoliberal capitalism, commercialization
