On Speech in the Poetry of Karel Šiktanc
Vinš, Ondřej ; Vojvodík, Josef (advisor) ; Hrdlička, Josef (referee)
On Speech in the Poetry of Karel Šiktanc The diploma thesis focuses on the poetry of Karel Šiktanc from the 1970 s to the present. It aims to identify and describe those invariables that could characterize his poetic work. In order to accomplish that, two main theoretical sources are used. First, Martin Heidegger's essay Básnicky bydlí člověk, and second, a cognitive ethnolinguistics approach. The overall goal of the thesis is to demonstrate how language (or, more precisely speech) might be conceptualized (cf. the metaphor of speech as space) and what function does speech have in the magical thinking. Using Eugène Minkowski's term zvučení, a noticeable contrast between the sound of speech and silence in Šiktanc's imagery is commented on. Due to the vastness of data, the analysis concentrates on selected poems that are somehow emblematic of each collection.
Motifs, Images and (self)-Stylizations of Czech Decadent Symbolism
Fremrová, Anna ; Merhaut, Luboš (advisor) ; Vojvodík, Josef (referee)
This thesis is focused on the decadent form of Czech symbolist literature at the turn of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century. The main task is to present a complex catalogue of motifs and images used by Czech decadents in their works and also to analyse the main methods and strategies they used - in particular interstatuality, also connected with the decadent effort to capture the uniqueness of each passing moment, and synaesthesia. The thesis also focuses on the radical individualism of decadent authors and its connection with both the motifs used and the symbolist style in itself - in the form of self-stylization of the decadent authors who tend to identify with their own works and become (even in real life) their own literal subjects. Because of the prominent visual aspect of decadent literature, the thesis also takes into consideration contemporary art works and the relations between words and images.

Erotica and Sexuality in the Work of Franz Kafka
Petrželová, Anežka ; Topor, Michal (advisor) ; Vojvodík, Josef (referee)
The basis of the thesis is the specification of the main terms of sexuality and eroticism as the possible clues to the interpretation of Franz Kafka's novel The Castle. The focal point of the thesis are several fundamental propositions creating a perspective which a novelistic setting could be seen through. The initial assumption gives the idea of a castle as an absolute factor of pleasure and even as the climax itself albeit constantly forbidden and unavailable. The sadomasochistic structure of the aforementioned setting corresponds to this. After determination of the terminological, methodological and semantic basis the main focus is on the area of sacral fetishism where the two concepts collectively generating a distinctive form of attraction converge. The thesis is focused on the circle of female characters and their specificities as well. The consideration is also given to an erotic motif of female servants, tempting ugliness, physical intimacy and estrangement, homosexual attraction, the absence of privacy and private life. Continuously analysed lines of fashionable fetishism, importance of clothing and the contact with a body are put in to mutual relations in the final charter dedicated to the character of the landlady. Key words: sexuality, erotica, Franz Kafka, The Castle, sadomasochistic...

"Closed to the sun, open them selves to the glorious silence of the stars": An Attempt to Analysis of a Withdrawnnes-motif; topics generated by it and their consequences in the literature and "literatures" at the turn of the century
Dostál, Mojmír ; Hrdlička, Josef (advisor) ; Vojvodík, Josef (referee)
The main aspiration of this thesis is to illustrate on several selected examples (or almost "cases" of clinical kind) from French, Russian, Polish, Italian (and in the second plan also German or English) writtings of the 19th and early 20th century the methods of application and presentation of the Withdrawnnes-motif in literature. And on the basis of them (after attempting to mapping out the network of their possible mutual influences, consequences, concurrency or filiations, in the interpretative part of the thesis, so on the II. to VI. chapter) try to define its final characteristics, periodisation, classification and his general definition. … and, moreover, or on the way to this purpose, perhaps to provide the reader a few other - perhaps more useful, or more interesting - information. Keywords: Autostylisation, Confusion of the dream and the reality, Decadence, Dreaming, Extreme mental states of mind, fin de siècle, Individualism, Literary motives, Modernism, Psychologism, Psychic naturalism, Solipsism, Transposition of identity, Withdrawnnes
BEYOND THE MAN: Transformations of the image of the man in painting from the mid-1940s until the 1960s. Theoretical and methodological principles.
Murár, Tomáš ; Vojvodík, Josef (advisor) ; Konečný, Lubomír (referee) ; Bydžovská, Lenka (referee)
The dissertation thesis deals with the interpretation of the "beyond-the-man" concept, which is being interpreted, on one hand, as a part of the art-theoretical and art-historical European modernity of the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th century, on the other hand, as a theoretical and methodological starting point for an interpretation of the transformation of the human image in the painting of the second half of the 1940s until the beginning of the 1960s. The foundation for such an interpretation is an assumption of the necessary transformation of the intellectual concepts after the World War II, as it was postulated by Theodor W. Adorno and how it was researched by Giorgio Agamben and Miroslav Petříček in the political-philosophical discourse. The thesis thus researches the "beyond-the-man" concept in the theory and history of art of the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th century in a way of it being as re-formulated art-creative concept after 1945, evident especially in abstract painting. The interpretation of the "beyond-the-man" concept is developed on reading of Fritz Novotny's interpretation of Paul Cézanne's art from the beginning of the 1930s. Novotny in Cézanne's painting described the concept of "beyond-the-man" (Außermenschlichkeit) as a breaking point of the...
