In the literary interpretation a sociological point of view is applied. The first chapter defines the Jewish people and deals with the history of Jews in the Czech lands. Special attention is paid to the process of emancipation and assimilation of Czech Jews. Two main ideological streams of Czech Jews are also described - the Czech-Jewish movement and Zionism. The second chapter presents biographical information about Vojtěch Rakous and shows his Czech-Jewish ideas and opinions and explains his perception of his own identity.

Kubínová, Eva ; Mocná, Dagmar (advisor) ; Brožová, Věra (referee)
The diploma thesis deals with the profile of fiction published in the magazine Lada on the turn of the nineteenth century into the twentieth.

Another perspective of interest to this project is the author's background, its changes over time and its influence on the overall orientation and appearance of the magazine, with the overall characteristics of it also included. The deeper, intellectual background reflected in the individual proses is also discussed. Given the fact that the publishing timeline extends over two different historical epochs, this final thesis strives to find answers to the question of to which extent the author's thinking was influenced by the historically social context, i.e. to what degree the authors adopt the modern, progressive ideas of the newly shaping society of the twentieth century, and conversely, to what extent both their opinions and thinking are...
