Jewish identity and its development in reflexion of Slovak literature
Babúsová, Julianna ; Pátková, Jana (advisor) ; Benešová, Michala (referee)
The Jewish theme and its various aspects are slightly processed in the Slovak literature. The aim of this thesis is to point out the importance of the topic. The main guideline of each interpretation is the term of identity, which is also a relevant aspect when presenting a broader range of contexts. Identity, in this case, is a phenomenon that can be best seized in the opposition of "we" versus "them", when its meaning and content (who and what am I, who and what are you?) are reflected in the most accurate way. The Slovak-Jewish relations are a representative example of such a binary opposition. The hypothesis of the work is that the representation practice of Slovak literature regarding the Jewish topic may be related to the non-literary context. The focus of the research is the examination of the constructions of Jewish identities that appeared in various interpretative and compositional layers of works of Slovakian high literature. The works of non-Jewish authors are considered to be hetero-interpretations, while the works of Jewish authors are self-interpretations of the same phenomenon, Jewish identity. Using the notion of tradition, the diachronic aspect of the phenomenon is taken into account. In the thesis two relevant definitions are confronted: Gadamer's rather positive steady and a...
Poetry of Chosen Poetesses, Debutants of the Seventies and Eighties of the 20th Century (Poetics and Interpretation)
Pavligová, Mária ; Pátková, Jana (advisor) ; Bokníková, Andrea (referee) ; Chmel, Rudolf (referee)

The subject of analysis is the poetic work of Viera Prokešová, Dana Podracká, Anna Ondrejková and Mila Haugová. All of them debuted via the same publishing platform - a rubric and later via the literary supplement of periodical Nové Slovo during the time of the strictest normalization process. The dissertation is divided into three chapters with the first one aiming to explain literary and historical context of the period, which is taken into consideration in the process of research. The objective is to provide coherent and concise depiction of the problematic part of Slovak literary history that was formed by specific sociopolitical situation. It is this detailed knowledge of the context that clarifies a certain degree of paradox and at the same time a degree of specificity of the poetesses selected. The main chapter that follows is called 'Poetesses with own angle of vision'. The author outlines circumstances of the last century which the female authors faced whilst breaking through in literature. One of the key terms that is associated with the work of these poetesses is female poetry (poetry written by females) and despite the term...
Modern National Novel in Central Europe
Kúdelka, Peter ; Chmel, Rudolf (advisor) ; Pátková, Jana (referee)
in English The papers contain a finding of the national literature in between novels in the Central Europe at the age of modernism in 20s and 30s o 20th century. The idea definition of national novel in the literatures of Central Europe is difficult and complicated process. This papers work with literal texts as a part of national literature with polish novel Przedwiośnie by Stefan Zeromsky, hungarian novel Édes Anna by Deszo Kosztolanyi, slovakian novel Cesta životom by Ladislav Nádasi-Jégé, czech novel Osudy dobrého vojáka Švejka by Jaroslav Hašek and austrian novel Mann ohne Eingeschafen by Robert Musil. The finding is divided into two parts - first is finding of national novel - second is about national character. Both situations are actualized with new terms - novel of the nation and character of the nation. Both literary terms correspond to objects that are not directly denouncing the life of the nation, but produces its main ideas and identification. The slovakian and the hungarian novel focus on the struggle of individual characters with society and their new status. In the contrary to the austrian and the czech novel reveal the principle of applying national characteristics in literary philosophical swirl. The polish novel is stranded somewhere in between these two types of novel. Key...

Blažejovský, Josef ; Putna, Martin (advisor) ; Pátková, Jana (referee)
The topic of this thesis (as its subtitle says) deals with the cultural and historical context of Jakub Deml's Image of Slovakia. In the first part, the author attempts to find his "own way" to Jakub Deml. In the second part, "Šlépěje" from the "Czechoslovakian era" are interpreted, i.e. IV.- VIII. These fall into the time period after the establishment of the Czechoslovakian Republic, Deml's meeting with Pavla Kytlicová, and his eventual settlement in his native city of Tasov (1919- 21). The third part offers a brief sketch of the cultural and historical context of the Czech-Slovak relationship, later also perceived from the Central European perspective. The fourth part initially uses two different examples to introduce the Image of Slovakia in Czech literature (Němcová, Kálal), and afterwards it turns to the literary analysis of Jakub Deml's Image of Slovakia. In the concluding chapter, this piece is set into the cultural and historical context and compared to other authors.

Bystrzak, Magdalena ; Stehlík, Michal (advisor) ; Pátková, Jana (referee) ; Maliti, Eva (referee)
Mgr. Magdalena Bystrzak The "Slovak Question" in Early Alexander Matuška's Works ABSTRACT The presented thesis deals with the issue of the "Slovak question" in early Alexander Matuška's works of 1930s. The author has in mind that A. Matuška's attitude towards the Slovak question was shaped by his contacts with the Czech intellectual elite during his studies at the Charles University in Prague (1928-1934). She comes out of an assumption that the "Slovak question" has mainly a cultural character in early A. Matuška's works. In the first part of the thesis, the author tries to show the character of the discourse on the "Slovak question" in 1930s. By researching debates on the "Slovak question" in representative cultural journals of the time, the author tries to point out that the "Slovak question" debate was not only about the emancipation of a the Slovak nation, but also about the modernization of the Slovak society. A. Matuška's early works are interpreted as a part of this effort. Both the second and the third parts are devoted to those aspects of A. Matuška's early works that the author considers as the critic's proposals for the modernization of the Slovak society. The second part is focused on his rejection of the romantic paradigm of the Slovak culture and on the A. Matuška's refusal of the then views...
