Summary / Abstract:

LTStraipsnyje analizuojami XIX a. pabaigoje - XX a. pirmoje pusėje išleisti lietuviški laiškų rašymo vadovėliai. Tokie vadovėliai buvo gana populiarūs (išėjo bent 17 pavadinimų knygelių) ir turėjo įtakos XX a. pirmosios pusės egodokumentų (laiškų, atminimų albumų, teisinių dokumentų ir pan.) turinio bei formos raidai. Jie tiriami liaudies prusinimo iniciatyvų kontekste, turinyje įžvelgiant ne tik asmeninio, bet ir juridinio raštingumo lavinimo pradmenis. [Iš leidinio]

ENThe article analyses Lithuanian textbooks on letter and document writing, published in the late 19th-early 20th century. The analysis is aimed at establishing their number and a more extensive consideration of their content as well as at answering the question whether they could have an impact on the literacy of the country’s population and can be considered a reliable source of cultural history. In the period from 1890 to 1940 at least 17 different Lithuanian textbook on letter writing were published - the first ones being issued abroad (in Latvia and the USA). The wide geography of textbook printing suggests that emigration of Lithuanians was the factor that induced their issuing. In 1918-1940 textbooks on letter writing were quite popular, compilers would supplement them with new material and produce 2 or 3 editions. They served well to people who were not sure about their literacy as they provided basic knowledge on letter structure accompanied with ample topic-based examples.However, it is doubtful whether such textbooks were promoting the epistolary culture and could be viewed as a reliable source of cultural history in the period under consideration. The problem is that there are no data on the extent of their influence. Another topic featured in textbooks on letter writing, namely the examples of important legal documents (applications, complaints, claims, etc.) and information on the instances of the court, could have had a more significant impact. An assumption can be made that the popularity of these textbooks was determined by the legal information and templates of documents directed at state institutions, rather than examples related to personal letter writing. These textbooks should be considered as a factor of both personal and legal literacy. [From the publication]
