Romeo and Juliet before Shakesperae
Szkanderova, Marie ; Pelán, Jiří (advisor) ; Bolletta, Ave (referee)
The aim of this work is to outline the origins of the famous play of William Shakespeare Romeo and Juliet. Almost everybody knows this play. They saw it in the theatre, read it in a book, saw it on television or in the cinema, but only few of them know, that William Shakespeare was only a skilful interpreter of the earlier stories of Romeo and Juliet written in verses or in prose. We will try to arrive to the roots of this story, that does not begin where the names of our two protagonists appear but it starts in the ancient times with the topos of the forbidden love. With the topos of the common grave or at least the desire to be together after the death. From these stories, that begin in the times when the man did not know to write we will move to the era where people started to write down the stories inherited and narrated for centuries in numerous variations until we arrive to the Humanism and Renaissance, that was very fruitful in all artistic experimentation and it was in this period, where our story will be first written with the characters that we know very well. We will stop for a longer time in Italy as the Italians wrote for the first time the story of Romeo and Juliet and we will try to describe the background of the single writers and the differences between the stories of our lovers....
Humanism and the Renaissance in Czech Print Culture
Fernández Couceiro, Eduardo ; Voit, Petr (advisor) ; Pelán, Jiří (referee) ; Halama, Ota (referee)
The present PhD thesis examines the reception of Humanism and the Renaissance in Czech print culture between 1476 and 1547. Critically, it opposes the predominant interpretation line that - from National Revival to post-war marxist literary criticism - tried to preserve at all costs a magnificent picture of the 16th century as a "golden age". The study is based on Petr Voit's recent works on Czech book printing of the first half of the 16th century and follows the reception of Humanism and the Renaissance from a complex point of view (printers' profiles, typography, illustrations and ornaments, readers' reception). The analysis shows that during the period under review, the Czech society, which predominantly professed a reformed confession (utraquism, lutheranism, the Unity of Brethren...), lived in a self-centered religious messianism, and therefore rejected any cultural novelties, especially those coming from Italy as the hometown of the hated papacy. Book printing largely reflected the conservatism and moral rigorism of this mainly utraquist society that ignored the entertainment literature, considered unnecessary or even undesirable. In this rigid religious scheme, the Renaissance literary genres (Petrarchan poetry, novella, epic poem, etc.) and the humanist text-critical approach to ancient...
