The writings of Janko Jesenský, a member of the Slovak Moderna group, straddle the pre-1918 and later periods. His fiction is characterised more by straightforward critical social realism, especially in his novel Demokrati (The Democrats, 1934-37), a humorously and affectionately ironic portrait of hypocritical "democracy" in practice, of middle-class life, public and private, civil servants, and the petty politicking of the day.
