Gregorová, Silvia ; Flemrová, Alice (advisor) ; Pelán, Jiří (referee) ; Čaplyginová, Olga (referee)
This dissertation on Neorelism in Italian Literature seeks to concretise and define more precisely literary neorealism through the analysis of the literary works of the main representatives (main representatives of what?) . Formally, the work is divided into eleven chapters. The first two chapters are aimed at a theoretical introduction to the issues related to the subject: the definition of realism and the introduction of the literary directions from which neorealism was based. The third chapter outlines the historical and cultural context of the twenties and thirties, that is, the time that preceded the emergence of neorealism, and at the same time gives a brief overview of the cultural movements that were at that time. The chapter concludes with an analysis of novels that are not yet non-realistic, but their linguistic and by means of content they no longer presage neorealism. The novels are: Gli Indifferenti by Alberto Moravia, Paesi tuoi by Cesare Pavese and Conversazione in Sicilia by Eloa Vittorini. The fourth chapter is devoted to the English translations of Cesare Pavese, which introduced new linguistic means into Italian literature.

Boundaries of the labyrinth. Literary Space in the Italian Postmodern Novels
Čaplyginová, Olga ; Flemrová, Alice (advisor) ; Pelán, Jiří (referee) ; Pechar, Jiří (referee)
The Phd thesis titled Boundaries of the labyrinth and subtitled Literary space in the Italian postmodern novels strives for specification and closer definition of the genre of post-modern novel through the analysis of literary space. Formally, the thesis is divided into three parts. The first part aims to provide a theoretical introduction into the problems of three areas related to the given topic, namely the definition of postmodernity and postmodernism, the genre of the novel itself and last but not least the study of space in literature. The content of the second part is the actual literary and scientific analysis of the selected novels (Città invisibili and Se una notte d'inverno un viaggiatore by Italo Calvino, Notturno indiano by Antonio Tabucchi, Comici spaventati guerrieri by Stefano Benni and Oceano mare and City by Alessandro Baricco) which follows three basic and most frequent spacial topoi occurring in these novels, namely the topos of the city, the house-hotel and the road. The third and final section sums up the observed aspects and characteristics and strives to use them as a basis for determining a certain and generalizing spacial and temporal principle which would facilitate at least a partial characterization of the postmodern novel as an independent genre.

Baroni, Sarah ; Flemrová, Alice (advisor) ; Čaplyginová, Olga (referee)
The aim of this thesis is to find and analyze thoroughly the elements of Jewishness and fascism in the writings of Primo Levi, Giorgio Bassani and Elsa Morante. We chose the key novels of these authors, where the topic of Jewishness and fascism is present most significantly. Then we made an analysis of these writings, we put emphasis on the topics examined by us and subsequently consequently we compared them. At first we described briefly a political-historical context in Italy after the ascension of fascism and during the war years. Afterwards we focused on individual writers who we firstly introduced in short biographical prefaces and after that we chose the representative writings in which we followed up their conception of the topic of Jewishness and fascism. In conclusion of the thesis we made a comparative analysis of the writings analyzed by us, and we found out that each of these authors had a specific attitude to the topic of Jewishness and fascism. Nevertheless, we noticed some analogies and similarities among the individual authors. For reasons of completeness, we mentioned what place the topic of Jewishness and fascism takes in the context of the total literary output of our chosen authors.
