group of young Czech writers of the mid-19th century whose aim was to create a new Czech literature that would reflect their liberalism and practical nationalism. They published in an almanac called Mj (1858; May) after the lyrical epic poem of the same name by Karel Hynek Mcha, whom the group regarded as the forerunner of their literary revolution.
