Abstract

The article considers Czech translations of Greek and Latin hexameter and pentameter, in which the Czech alexandrine was used as the verse for translation, that is, iambic hexameter with a caesura in the middle. An analysis of material by Josef Jungmann, Ivan Bureš, Julie Nováková, Jiří Žáček, Milan Machovec shows how the rhythm of the verse changes depending on the times or the author or both. The analysis suggests possible ways to use this in the actual practice of translation. The article pays particular attention to Nováková and her translation of Musaeus’ epyllion, Hero and Leander: in keeping with her own intentions, Nováková has, by capturing the principal features of Mácha’s alexandrine, managed to evoke Mácha -like connotations in her translation, while completely suppressing connotations of French culture or Czech Decadence, which almost automatically accompany the Czech alexandrine.
