In the 1930s and 1940s, Václav Černý's name is primarily linked to Kritický měsíčník, it was not however the only periodic where he continuously and regularly published his critical works at the time. Between 1936-1938 he used to present his views and judgements as a chief of Lidové noviny's critic section Literární pondělí ("Literary Monday"). It was not only works of literary criticism he published there - but also notices on events in both Czech and foreign culture (exhibitions, theatre performances, upcoming book releases), he commented on literary and social events, commemorated forgotten poets through brief profiles. Contemporary Czech literature however remained his focal point - he wrote regularly about the works of all the significant authors of the 1930s. Therefore he reflected on most of the contemporary poetry (Vladimír Holan, Vítězslav Nezval, Vilém Závada, František Halas, etc.) and fiction (Josef Čapek, Egon Hostovský, Ivan Olbracht, Jiří Weil, Jan Čep, etc.). Along with Czech literature he also followed developments in French culture. He wrote about both new French releases and their Czech translations, notified not only of fiction, but also specialized contributions in literary periodicals. In the field of fiction Václav Černý felt that it's the novel sequences that can express the spirit of the era in the most convincing fashion; in Lidové noviny Černý followed one of these, Jules Romains' roman-fleuve Men of Good Will, volume by volume. The Spanish Civil War inspired his efforts to promote Spanish culture and he repeatedly mentioned such authors as Antonio Machado, Federico García Lorca, José Ortega y Gasset and Miguel de Unamuno; Černý however also commemorated the timeless legacy of Don Quijote or Góngora's poetry. Therefore, the presented works from Lidové noviny not only provide the evidence of Černý's continuous preoccupation as a critic, but also present a comprehensive report on Czech and European literature of the 1930s.
