Jorge de Montemayor and the Diana: a pastoral romance or mysticism?
Juračková, Pavlína ; Sánchez Fernández, Juan Antonio (advisor) ; Housková, Anna (referee)
Writer Jorge de Montemayor wrote in the Spanish 16th century. History of literature is mainly interested in his last book Los siete libros de la Diana (The Seven Books of Diana) which is traditionally called the first pastoral romance written in the Iberian Peninsula. Concurrently, most studies explain the book from the same perspective, which works with the big artistic period (Renaissance) and artistic genre (the pastoral romance). If we focus on Jorge de Montemayor's book from a different view - which is connected with period situation (problems of converso, the Inquisition, the heterodoxy's opinions or book censorship) and which takes the author's previous texts in consideration - we are able to reread his work. This thesis seeks to use ideas coming from New Historicism. Using period situation Montemayor's texts set out to explain that Los siete libros de la Diana is closer to the spiritual way of mysticism than to literary form such as the pastoral romance.
The visible and the invisible in the work of José Ángel Valente
Melicharová, Anna ; Sánchez Fernández, Juan Antonio (advisor) ; Housková, Anna (referee)
This thesis follows a topic of visible and invisible in the poetry and the essays of the Spanish writer active in the second half of the 20th century, José Ángel Valente. It situates the author in his historical and literary context and presents the evolution of his work. After that, it focuses on three of Valente's sources of inspiration and it outlines the conception of speech and artwork in Heidegger, the approach to space of sculptor Eduardo Chillida and the work with matter of painter Antoni Tàpies. The visible and the invisible are indirectly observed in Valente by means of more or less concrete representation and relationship to the reality, in visual characteristics, such as light and darkness, colours and shapes, and in the problematics of the sight. The visibility, the invisibility and the transparency directly manifest themselves in Valente's conception of matter and form and the word's manifestation and they also appear as motifs in his texts.

Pulcerová, Romana ; Poláková, Dora (advisor) ; Housková, Anna (referee)
(in English) In my bachelor thesis, I focus on the period of struggles for independence in Latin America that began in the first half of the 19th century. In particular, I describe the legendary figure of Simón Bolívar's independence movement, whose legacy is still recognized and revered in Latin America. First I will describe Bolívar's biography and specify historical events that have had an impact on his life. I will try briefly to explain the progress and gain of independence. I will come closer to Bolívar in the work of "The General in his Labyrinth" in which Colombian author Gabriel G. Márquez, who portrays the last months of his life. It is not only Bolivar as a historical person, but as a man whose size and glory did not help escape from loneliness and abandonment in the last moments of his life. The aim of my work is to approach Bolívar's life from the point of view of Márquez. It is a connection between the typical theme of loneliness of Márquez in the historical context.

This work is centered in the analysis of characters in the novel The Savage Detevcives written by Roberto Bolaño. The thesis has no purpose in the biografic analysis of its authors life. It represents a detailed research and identification of characters that were (and still are) attached to our delimited context which is centered in the years of the development of the plot (1975-1976) and the years after while the movement infrarrealsim lasts. Its purpose is the analysis of each selected character. In order to fulfill it I have created the concept of the "infra-grafía". An infra-grafía is some kind of curriculum of each character that helps to respond the question that this work arises: which characters are fictional and which are infra-real? Because real is none of them.
