Journey towards current drama through commedia dell' arte and G. B. Andreini
Dvořáková, Edita ; Pelán, Jiří (advisor) ; Žáčková, Magdalena (referee)
Current playwriting is performed with awareness that its product, the text, will be performed on stage: therefore it takes into consideration the specific qualities of theatre and it's being percieved as one of its components. It hasn't been always like this, though, until the 20th century drama together with theatre was being classified as undoubtable part of literature. In this thesis I will try to explore why these two different points of view exist and why their exchange occurred. I will examine the changes in the relationship of theatre and literature. I will sketch this question from the origins of theatre in the ancient Greece, through the medieval folk theatre to the baroque commedia dell'arte. In the second part I will focus on the role in the balancing of this relationship that was played by the work of the playwright, the actor and capocomico Giovan Battista Andreini in the turn of the 16th and 17th century. I will analyse the revision performed by this author on this topic on the example of his play Two comedies in one - and I will try to prove the meaningfulness of such revision on the current performance of this play, introduced by the group Geisslers Hofcomoedianten in 2014. In the enclosure there is a brief interview with translator Kateřina Bohadlová, the author of the translation...

Gadda's Crime Novels in the Context of the Contemporary Debate on Subject and Intersubjectivity
Richterová, Daniela ; Flemrová, Alice (advisor) ; Pelán, Jiří (referee)
(in English): The main aim of this thesis is to focuse on the two of C. E. Gadda's most famous novels in their comparative interpretations based on the perspective of the debate on subject and intersubjectivity by philosophers E. Husserl, M. Heidegger and L. Wittgenstein. After a short intoduction dedicated to life and work of the author, we analyse both novels in which we witness the shift of attention from the problem of the subject to the problem of the intersubjectivity seen as socially anchored truth that gives rise to antidetective novel. In conclusion we emphasise once again the epistemological level of meaning in Gadda's novels - their insights into the essence of truth and the character of human knowledge in general which emerge especially with the crime fiction against the background of questions regarding conscience and justice.
Commento sopra una canzone d'amore in Context of Its Time
Herůfek, Jan ; Pelán, Jiří (advisor) ; Petříček, Miroslav (referee) ; Žáčková, Magdalena (referee)
The doctoral thesis Commento sopra una canzone dʼamore in the Context of Its Times, divided into four chapters, focuses on an analysis of the concept of love as perceived by the Italian humanist G. Pico della Mirandola (1463-1494). As Giovanni Pico was an author who lived and worked in the Italian Quattrocento, in the first chapter ("Italian Humanist Giovanni Pico: Portrait Attempt") the attention is focused on the concept of studia humanitatis. His relation to the study of classical languages (Greek and Latin), rhetoric, philosophy and theology is examined in the first part ("Pico between Rhetoric and Philosophy"). Here we deal with the question whether Pico like other Italian humanists adopted the contemporary phenomenon, i. e. the discovery of sources of ancient wisdom (ad fontes). And thus Pico can be grouped with intellectuals of the type of M. Ficino and A. Poliziano, who set themselves the task of creating critical editions of philosophical texts, or, rather, whether Pico used humanist tools (especially rhetoric) to introduce his humanistic philosophical-theological concept. Pico seems to have selected the latter option and he systematically presented his humanistic conception in his works dating from 1486 to 1489 (e.g. Oratio 1486, Conclusiones 1486, Apologia 1487 and Heptaplus 1489). The...

The chapter concludes with an analysis of novels that are not yet non-realistic, but their linguistic and by means of content they no longer presage neorealism. The novels are: Gli Indifferenti by Alberto Moravia, Paesi tuoi by Cesare Pavese and Conversazione in Sicilia by Eloa Vittorini.

(english) This bachelor thesis deals with two earlier and two more recent Czech translations of the Italian children's novel Le Avventure di Pinochio. Storia di Un Burrattino [The Adventures of Pinocchio. The Tale of a Puppet], in Czech known as Pinocchiova dobrodružství. The aim of the thesis is to analyse the translations in terms of their functionality in the target environment and their perception by the target reader. The analysis examines differences in Czech translations on the level of language elements. Another criterion for evaluating the translations is their relation to the original text, respectively the degree of translation adequacy. The comparison of the Czech translations with the original establishes the extent to which the original author's style has been preserved in them. At the conclusion, it is stated to what extent the individual translations adhere rather to the acceptability in the target literary culture, or to the adequacy of the original.
