Modern literary theory has created a variety of approaches to describe dynamic processes emerging in a literary field. This may be especially significant in the case of relatively young literary traditions, characterized by rather high level of dynamics.
Among various theories of significance is a theory launched in the last quarter of the last century by a Slovakian scholar of comparative literature, Dionýz Ďurišin (1929-1997), who came up with the theory of the so-called specific inter-literary communities. The works of Ďurišin and other scholars, mainly from East European countries (such as Joseph Grmela, Libuša Vajdova, Irina Nikiforova, Yuri Azarov, and others) were published in the 1980s, 1990s and early 2000s in a variety of collection.
