Summary/Abstract: This paper outlines various forms and functions of “writing about writing” in the private correspondence of Karel Havlíček. The thematization of writing includes, among others, the reflection of the act of writing and of the mutual exchange of letters, requests for the communicative activity of the addressee, remarks on the choice of language and language devices. The paper deals with three periods of Havlíček’s correspondence. His correspondence with fellow students focused on a playful thematization of writing letters; in 1840s, the tension between private and public writing came to the fore; during the Brixen confinement Havlíček emphasized the emotional value of correspondence with family and friends.
