Ján Chalupka (* 28 October 1791, Horná Mičiná - † 15 July 1871, Brezno) was a Slovak dramatist, playwright, publicist and Evangelical pastor.

Life

He was born into a family of Evangelical pastor Adam Chalupka, and wasn't the only member who chose literature - his brother Samo Chalupka also chose literature. Chalupka gained education at home, in Ožďany, Levoča, Prešov, Sárospatak and studied in Vienna and Jena. He was a teacher, from 1817 to 1824 a professor at a lyceum in Kežmarok and from 1824 until his death a pastor in Brezno.

Works

His main contribution into the Slovak literature was in drama. His activities were the impulse for the theatrical life in present-day Slovakia. He wrote mainly dramatic satirical works, where he criticized local patriotism, Magyarization aspects, conservatism, limited life goals etc. His first works were in Czech, but after 1848 he started writing in Slovak and translated originally Czech works into Slovak.
