Chronic innocence: A queer reading
Stanjurová, Martina ; Březinová, Helena (advisor) ; Stahr, Radka (referee)
Bc. Martina Stanjurová The Chronic Innocence: A Queer Reading Abstract: The Master's thesis analyses Klaus Rifbjerg's novel The Chronic Innocence (1958), one of the central works of the Danish literature. The analysis is carried out from the gender studies perspective, namely through the principles of the post structuralist queer theories. The thesis deals with the analysis of the dynamics of the relationship between the central figures, the narrator Janus and his classmate Tore. By using the queer reading method, the thesis unveils how the narrator expresses and conceals his platonic fascination for the friend. Moreover, the thesis tries to explain the essence of the narrator's relationship to the female figures, which shows misogynic traits.
Translation of Danish Proper Nouns into Czech
Jelšík, Adam ; Březinová, Helena (advisor) ; Slouková, Radka (referee)
The aim of this master thesis is to analyse the translation solutions used for the translation of proper names between Danish and Czech in five contemporary translations of Danish fiction. The first part deals with the definition and division of proper names in the Czech linguistic theory and with the analysis of the Translation studies literature, which will serve as the basis for the analysis. The main focus of the following part is the qualitative and quantitative analysis of the individual translation solutions in the analysed texts. The analysed proper names will be divided according to the translation procedures used in their translation. The results of the analysis will be used to draft the tendency in the translation of these names.

Courtesy and Women in the Scandinavian Knightly Epic
Ivánková, Markéta ; Březinová, Helena (advisor) ; Polách, Vladimír (referee) ; Malaníková, Michaela Antonín (referee)
Courtesy and Women in the Scandinavian Knightly Epic Abstract The aim of this dissertation was synchronic and diachronic evaluation of gender roles in Scandinavian courtly epic from its beginning in the 13th century until the end of the 15th century. Its different conceptions of women, love, and courtesy were chosen as criteria, which make the main specifics of continental courtly fashion apparent - of the fashion which these translations were meant to introduce into Scandinavia. Besides literary analyses of gender norms, we have considered texts of pragmatic nature and even selected artefacts of material culture. Our focus, therefore, included a broader social, cultural, and political context of this literature and social norms and literary conventions of other contemporary literary genres in Scandinavia. Our work is based not only on primary sources and findings of literary history, but also on interdisciplinary research. Our analyses demonstrate the destabilisation and redefinition of gender boundaries in Old Norse literature, which was caused by translations of knightly epic, where the male hero was allowed so far unparalleled degree of sensitivity and feminine openness of emotions. Prior to these translations, honour and status of any man, who would humbly beseech his beloved like the heroes of...

Ekphrasis in the Works of Karen Blixen
Slouková, Radka ; Humpál, Martin (advisor) ; Březinová, Helena (referee) ; Jedličková, Alice (referee)
This thesis analyses ekphrastic passages in the short stories of the Danish writer Karen Blixen. It points out the various definitions of ekphrasis while drawing on a wider conception of this phenomenon which is based on the current intermediality discourse. The texts are analysed on two levels: 1) Ekphrastic thematization, i.e., the transfer of content elements from visual arts to literature, especially regarding landscape painting, portrait and still life. 2) Ekphrastic realization, i.e., the practical use of painting techniques in literary texts, such as the choice of colours or the depiction of light. The results of the analyses indicate a diversity of forms of ekphrasis in Blixen's works, be it in terms of scope, form or integration into the text structure. The results also point out the importance of the so-called pictorial model concept in the author's poetics.
Middle and Late Bronze Age Textile Production on the Greek Mainland and in Western Anatolia
Staničová, Jana ; Pavúk, Peter (advisor) ; Březinová, Helena (referee)
This thesis is concerned with textile production in Middle and Late Bronze Age on the Greek continent and western Anatolia. First part explains the description of methodology of approach to textile manifacture in the studied area, followed by description and properties of threads used to weave the cloths, as well as technologies used in their making. Terms related to textile are mentioned on clay tablets with linear writing B, hence the thesis engages in their interpretation and comparison between particular centres. Second part analyses tools used in textile manifacture, namely whorls and loom weights based on their shape. Then follows topographic overview of the most prominent localities of textile manifacture in which textile-making tools were found. Localities not included in the overview are mentioned in the table. The overview describes locality, number and types of whorls and loom weights and what materials are they made of. Whenever possible, the most important specification is mentioned - the weight - based on which the type of weaved textile is described. The aim of the thesis is to create overview of localities with tools used in textile making as well as their analysis and comparison. Collected data are converted into tables, graphs and maps. In the last part called discussion,...
Music as a structural component and motif in Nordic novels: Juloratoriet, Ormens väg på hälleberget, De fortabte spillemænd
Miesslerová, Zuzana ; Březinová, Helena (advisor) ; Hartlová, Dagmar (referee)
(česky) Tato diplomová práce se zabývá otázku, jakou roli hraje hudba ve třech vybraných skandinávských hudebních románech Ztracení muzikanti Wiliama Heinesena, Cesty hada na skále Torgnyho Lindgrena a Vánoční oratorium Görana Tunströma. Analýza komplexních intermediálních vztahů mezi jednotlivými literárními díly a hudbou postupuje v souladu se zásadami Feyerabendova metodologického anarchismu induktivně a heuristicky. U všech tří románů nachází strukturální i obsahové literárně-hudební souvislosti, které vykazují různou míru komplexity a vzájemné provázanosti. Struktura Heinesenova románu úzce kopíruje sonátovou formu, struktura Tunströmova románu o něco volněji následuje strukturu Bachova Vánočního oratoria a struktura Lindgrenova románu vytváří prostřednictvím délky kapitol rychlé a pravidelné tempo, které ovšem v klíčovém bodě příběhu kolabuje. Romány obsahují také řadu tematických souvislostí, kdy hudba figuruje jako zdroj radosti nebo naopak předehra ponížení, atribut života nebo naopak prostředek úniku do fantazie, genderová charakteristika spojená buď s mužskými nebo s ženskými postavami, nebo jako základ dalších, složitějších dichotomií. Abstract (in English): The thesis poses a question about the role of music in three selected Scandinavian music novels: Wiliam Heinesen's Lost Musicans,...
