Women's emancipation in Dangerous Liaisons by Pierre Choderlos de Laclos
Rumpíková, Michaela ; Fučíková, Milena (advisor) ; Listíková, Renáta (referee)
The aim of this bachelor thesis is to scrutinize, through a detailed literary and sociological analysis, the theme of women's emancipation featuring in the epistolary novel, Dangerous Liaisons, by Pierre Choderlos de Laclos. This work will principally concentrate on the question of female identity of the three characters, Cecile, Tourvel and Merteuil, in the context of the Enlightenment. We will examine the text by taking into consideration two contrasting approaches, traditional and contemporary, in order to demonstrate the ambiguity of the interpretation. We will attempt to characterize the female protagonists and consequently categorize them on the bases of contextual typology of characters. Simultaneously on the poetic and narrative level, we will attempt to exemplify their emancipatory attempts examining the heroines in connection with their female identity and philosophical conception of the Enlightenment about humanity.

Štencová, Linda ; Fučíková, Milena (advisor) ; Listíková, Renáta (referee)
This diploma thesis on Commented Translation of Joël Casséus' Crépuscules consists of translation of the first three chapters of the Quebec novel Crépuscules into the Czech language and subsequent expert commentary. This commentary focuses on the analysis of the novel genre that balances science fiction and modern myth, as well as the Christiane Nord analysis of the original text through which it explores external factors such as author, reader, intention, text function or its motive and intra-text factors such as theme and content, composition, nonverbal components, lexicon, syntax, and suprasegmental phenomena. Subsequently, in the commentary, we deal with translation problems, their solutions and applied translation procedures such as transposition, modification, compensation, generalization or specification.
