Earlier literary-historical research found influences of Ancient poetry and the contemporary Anacreontic poetry of Germany in the work of P. J. Šafárik. Modern views have noticed his poetic independence and prominent position in the development of the Czech and Slovak poetry. The paper observes some features of Šafárik’s work in the fields of motifs, verse and prosody and their function in the development of Czech poetry in the period after Puchmajer.
