Summary/Abstract: This paper explores objectiveness in children’s poetry as it is a significant aspect of this genre and occurs in various shapes and forms. It is possible to perceive this aspect in many ways in connection with the specificity of reception relative to the age of the recipient and their changing demands on the poetry’s genre and quality. The analytical part focuses on the modern Czech poetry for children by two poets: František Halas and Milena Lukešová. Their works represent an innovative type of children’s poetry inspired by children´s view of the world, child’s personality their logic and language. Both poets offer more than one creative rendition of objectiveness. This is a good reason to bring the objectiveness into focus as a traditional though potentially imaginative and aesthetically powerful aspect.
