Could a Czech write Lolita? About the nonexistence of the erotic literature
The rhetorical question — could the Czech write Lolita? — has become an impulse to consider the role of the erotic literature and the phenomenon of the body and corporeality, especially in the modern Czech literature. This theme is also connected with the discourse of the nonconformist literature (for instance in the underground literature), the problem of authorship (in the avant-garde time the erotic texts were also anonymous), and generally the potential of the erotic writing as the corporeal form of literature. A Czech writer, for example Milan Kundera, could write Lolita after ten or twenty years.
