The Czech literary studies have been lacking a lexicographic work focused on literature for children and youth. It should be noted that in foreign literary contexts comprehensive dictionary works dealing with authors of intentional and non-intentional literature for children and youth are quite common. At present, in particular, after witnessing in the past decades considerable transformations in the area of intentional literature for children and youth (inclusiveness of literary discourse, visualization of the aesthetic canon of children's literature, axiological polarity of literature for youth, competition from the part of other media, etc.), there clearly arises a necessity of a synthesizing dictionary handbook focused on the development of Czech literature for children and youth from ith beginnigns to the present dealing with not only authors but also key journals, scholarly intitutions and literary awards in the area of Czech literature for children and youth. The project aims at creating a handbook Dictionary of Authors of Literature for Children and Youth - Czech Writers.
