The forms of fantasy (mystique) in Czech prose at the end of the 19th century
Michalcová, Anna ; Merhaut, Luboš (advisor) ; Vaněk, Václav (referee)
The goal of this Bachelor's thesis is the identification and description of chosen texts with fantastic elements by Jakub Arbes, Julius Zeyer, Svatopluk Čech, Adam Chlumecký, Josef Jiří Kolár, Alfons Bohumil Šťastný and Karel Švanda of Semčice. Fantastic literature is defined as a genre in the first chapter and described in terms of its historical context in the next. The third chapter marks the aspects which are used for text interpretation (characters, time and space, motives, formal aspects). Chapters five and six introduce the context of the Czech territory in the second half of the 19th century and the categorisation of fantasy types according to Krejčí (Arbes and Zeyer, 1975). The following chapters place the chosen texts into these categories, namely Arbesian, Zeyerian and utopian fantasy. The final chapter includes a summary, which finds Krejčí's categorization as functional.
The Ways of Interpreting "Authorial Fairy Tales" at Secondary School
Vojtíšek, Ondřej ; Vaněk, Václav (advisor) ; Králíková, Andrea (referee)
The goal of diploma work "The Ways of Interpreting 'Authorial Fairy Tales' at Secondary School" is to present various ways how to interpret fairy tales with students of literature at secondary schools. This goal is reached by means of two endeavours. First, the role of fairy tales and frequency of their usage in teaching of literature at secondary schools are analyzed. Such analysis is important as fairy tales seem to be a rather neglected and less studied genre among those used as teaching tools at secondary schools. Second, ways and methods of interpretation suitable for secondary schools are proposed. This endeavour is motivated by the current societal need to cultivate and develop test questions that verify abilities of students to interpret texts. These two lines of research run separately through the diploma thesis at first and come together not until the final part of it. The analysis of the role of fairy tales in teaching of literature at secondary schools forms the first part of the diploma thesis. Data for analysis have been gained from secondary school teaching manuals, from lists of books needed for final exams, and from Internet survey conducted among teachers. At the very beginning, the educational advantages of using fairy tales when teaching interpretation, such as clarity of text,...
Memories of Bedřich Frída
Hubáček, Jiří ; Vaněk, Václav (advisor) ; Topor, Michal (referee)
The core of the work lies in an edition of less known or never published memorial texts related to Jaroslav Vrchlický. The work introduces memoirs of the Poet's brother, Bedřich Frída, written shortly after Vrchlický's death and never edited before. This edition also focuses on texts of Jaroslav Vrchlický himself published so far only in periodicals, which reflect mainly the Poet's youth. The edited texts also contain expert medical report of Vrchlický written by Josef Pelnář. Comprehensive commentary serves as an aid for understanding the facts present in the edited texts as well as provides period reflexions of some of the moments of Vrchlický's life known from other literature. The opening study firstly maps memorial literature related to Jaroslav Vrchlický, and provides its self-contained overview. Second part focuses on Bedřich Frída, the author of the most extensive parts of the edited texts, and tries to provide complex picture of the life of less known Czech translator, pedagogue, and dramatic adviser of the National Theatre. Most importantly the study follows period materials trying to map complicated and dynamically changing relation between the two brothers and so provides comparison between the period materials and the text of Frída's memoirs depicting his version of coexistence with...

The character of a priest in Czech literature of the 19th century
Trdlica, Vilém ; Vaněk, Václav (advisor) ; Hošna, Jiří (referee)
The thesis analyzes the prose works of Czech literature of the 19th century, in which a character of a priest appears. The thesis interprets the passages of selected works of K. V. Rais, K. Klostermann, J. Š. Baar, I. Herrmann and B. Němcová. The works of fiction, which elaborate on the psychology of the characters more deeply, are set into rural environment. The priests enter various relationships and conflicts with the parishioners. By that, either a picture of a traditional village is illustrated, or, its profound transformation is depicted. The thesis is also devoted to analyzing the description of mutual relations between priests. For the figure of a priest in Czech literature is typical that he communicates with believers mainly through his office, but that he also expresses his social feeling beyond that. The thesis concludes that, in Czech literature of the 19th century, the priest is generally perceived and depicted as a character with predominantly positive features.

Rhyme and Stanza in Czech Verse, especially in the Poetry of Jan Neruda
Říha, Jakub ; Vaněk, Václav (advisor) ; Tureček, Dalibor (referee) ; Wiendl, Jan (referee)
The present study focuses on the two broad areas of theory and history of Czech verse, rhyme and stanza. The first part of the study is dedicated to the rhyme. It contains a historical and terminological introduction and a comprehensive description and interpretation of principles of rhyme in Czech accentual-syllabic verse (19th century). The characterization of the principles of rhyme in other versification systems (syllabic verse, quantitative verse) and in free verse is allocated in the separate sections. Methodologically, the first part is based on the tradition of Czech structuralism. The second part, dedicated to the stanza, brings a similarly conceived interpretation of stanzaic forms in the Czech syllabic and accentual-syllabic verse. Given the absence of Czech tradition, the second part is methodologically inspired by French metrics. In addition to terminological and methodological apparatus the second part includes an inventory of basic stanzaic forms in the Czech verse and its analysis. A separate section within the second part is devoted to the small group of quantitative stanzas employed in Czech verse. The third part contains three case studies on rhyme and stanzaic forms in the Czech poetry of the second half of the 19th century, with special attention to the poetic work of Jan...
Female characters in early proses of Julius Zeyer
Kumžáková, Karolína ; Vaněk, Václav (advisor) ; Činátlová, Blanka (referee)
(in English): This bachelor thesis looks at female characters in early novels of Julius Zeyer. The main theme of the thesis is Šalda's statement that highlights a strong position of women in Zeyer's novel and devides female characters into angels and hellcats. The aim of the thesis is to verify this division in following novels: Ondřej Černyšev, Román o věrném přátelství Amise a Amila and Gompači and Komurasaki. The analysis of novels focuses on differences in artistic interpretation of female and male characters, reflecting the polarity of the woman as angel and the woman as devil, and explores the position of female characters in all their subtleties.
Characters and stories of Prague's underworld as reflected in late 19th and early 20th century fiction
Bartoňová, Barbora ; Vaněk, Václav (advisor) ; Wiendl, Jan (referee)
The diploma thesis deals with various genres which, at the turn of the century, depicted life of the Prague offscourings, i.e. socially excluded and frequently humiliated inhabitants of Prague. The main objective is to give a characteristic of a homeless character, the man on the street, also known as the "Prague vagabond", a character which regularly appears in literature of the period. The thesis discusses several specific Prague vagabonds whom it subsequently compares to the literary type of vagabond (the author used Daniela Hodrová's theoretical findings about the literary type) and shows the impact the city environment has on him. Besides that, the author follows the way the city itself is described as the vagabond of Prague is closely connected with and to a large extent determined by his home city. Primarily, the thesis works with fiction (although a few plays are included as well) and aims to focus on authors of the period who are not widely known today, e.g. R. J. Kronbauer, K. L. Kukla, V. Plaček, F. L. Šmíd, and J. Hais Týnecký. Keywords Prague, Prague offscourings, vagabond, beggar, social issues, literary character, environment
