SK: Tales of Hills and Visiting Their Heart and Soul

Published: 30.12.2018
"There in the hilltops, on their very top close to the blue skies yet far from fertile soil. There is the beginning of waters and end to the bread. People have not much of wealth yet much of honor as it usually is when one looks God's into his eyes."

A quote from the work of Milan Urban (from the short story "No!") And from the book "Stories of the Hills" by Marian Grebac as if it were a sign of where the reader will move after opening this unusual book.

The author of the book climbed twenty-five mountains in Slovakia, and he sought to reflect these experiences in literature. He has not only found many literary places on his hiking tours but also revealed the meaning and importance of these locations in the past and present. He discovered the genius loci of the hills and valleys below them and shared with the reader about his experience.

Marián Grebac has been editor of the Slovak Radio for over 45 years. At the time when you read these lines, nearly one hundred parts of the Genius loop cycle were broadcast according to the literature. No wonder that only a quarter of them was a very thankless job. Other pitfalls were hiding in the literary reporting of these reports. Together with a book editor, a language teacher and a graphic artist, however, they finally finished the final picture.

And what led the author to explore the spirit of the place of the hills that inspired our national literature? What gave him the idea of going to the places of the story, novels, legends, or poems? In his own words, he wondered what had changed since the time when the authors described these places in their works, or, conversely, what remained unchanged and preserved to this day. He found out that when one begins to perceive the landscape, its image is more complex and the relationship to it is deeper, more durable and more sincere. And its hills become a source of inspiration and its support. As P. O. Hviezdoslav suggested in one of his poems:

 

                                      „Tak porúčali dedi: Vedzte, deti,

                                    tie vrchy tam, to vašej zeme méty,

                                    to pomedzníky! Kým tie čnejú hore

                                  čo stráž: ver nik vám zeme neodorie!“
