uk.abstract.enIn the Czech appropriation of the literary genre splatterpunk, political correctness, or more precisely the lack of it, occupies a prominent place. Fascination with so-called ‘incorrectness’ can be understood to be a special case of what Richard Burt identifes as ‘the fetish of censorship’ with writers drawing from the appeal of such ‘forbidden’ topics as racial and gender stereotypes. Tis paper examines the ways in which the criticism of correctness plays out in diferent forms of paratexts, such as ads, reviews, and interviews with writers. Te analysis of Czech splatterpunk novels and short stories reveals what is actually understood as ‘incorrect’ in terms of literary fction, and how those texts, featuring primarily white masculine heroes with indestructible bodies, lend themselves to diferent kinds of readings: from sharp political satire to self-refective spectacular grotesque.cs_CZ
