Cultural and historical works of Alois Jirásek
Pokorná, Gabriela ; Merhaut, Luboš (advisor) ; Vaněk, Václav (referee)
The purpose of this thesis is to present Alois Jirásek as an author of popular texts, both educative and tendentious, published in contemporary periodicals or reprinted in his collected works as the case may be; and thus adjust his conventional picture as a writer exclusively of fiction. Jirásek's writings on historical and cultural topics, having largely been on the margins of scholarly focus (as secondary literature appears to refer to them on very few occasions), shall be stratified and characterized here, as well as contrasted and compared with the works of other selected authors. The work attempts to reflect their merits educative and instructive, and - assembling all the fundamental information - aims to serve as the basis for further research and outline its possibilities. Key Words Alois Jirásek, Cultural histor, Cultural and historical works
Motifs, Images and (self)-Stylizations of Czech Decadent Symbolism
Fremrová, Anna ; Merhaut, Luboš (advisor) ; Vojvodík, Josef (referee)
This thesis is focused on the decadent form of Czech symbolist literature at the turn of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century. The main task is to present a complex catalogue of motifs and images used by Czech decadents in their works and also to analyse the main methods and strategies they used - in particular interstatuality, also connected with the decadent effort to capture the uniqueness of each passing moment, and synaesthesia. The thesis also focuses on the radical individualism of decadent authors and its connection with both the motifs used and the symbolist style in itself - in the form of self-stylization of the decadent authors who tend to identify with their own works and become (even in real life) their own literal subjects. Because of the prominent visual aspect of decadent literature, the thesis also takes into consideration contemporary art works and the relations between words and images.
The Comparison of Selected High School Textbooks of Czech Literature from the First Half of the 20th Century
Bendová, Klára ; Merhaut, Luboš (advisor) ; Vojtíšek, Ondřej (referee)
The topic of the presented thesis is a comparison of selected high school textbooks of Czech literature, which were created and used during the first half of the 20th century, in terms of sociopolitical changes (i.e. notably changes in education related to transformation of the system of government in 1918, 1938 and 1948) and changes in the discourse of Czech literary historiography (especially in view of the major literary-historical works of the period). The thesis aims to examine the extent to which the image of Czech literature presented in high school textbooks has changed with respect to the named factors and, on the contrary, to what extent continuity has been maintained within the concept of teaching literature. The thesis is therefore mainly focused on the choice of taught material, its structure, resp. interpretation in the analyzed textbooks. In the introductory (methodological) part of the thesis major literary-historical works, resp. theories of the given period (with regard to the changes of high school literary teaching in the first half of the 20th century) will be briefly introduced and selected thematically related works will be reflected. In the practical part of the thesis the comparison will be made on the basis of defined aspects.

Karel Ladislav Kukla - observer
Turková, Barbora ; Vaněk, Václav (advisor) ; Merhaut, Luboš (referee)
The aim of this bachelor thesis is to introduce the personality and works of Karel Ladislav Kukla, an author who was sidelined, in today's literary context.

In his works, Kukla managed to capture, with a great deal of authenticity, significant social and cultural phenomena taking place in Prague such as the renewal and cessation of existence of the original nightclub quarters; the post-war housing situation and the emergence and development of slum colonies. In individual chapters of the thesis, the author analyses the works of Karel Ladislav Kukla in the context of the aforementioned phenomena, which are set within a broader literary-cultural framework.
