The Review Scéna and the Czech Prewar Avant-Garde
Bálková, Anna ; Holý, Jiří (advisor) ; Vojvodík, Josef (referee)
The aim of this thesis is to discover and to sname the specific resources and procedures which were present at the birth of the theatre expressionism in our country. The first method used to find the solution to that was a compilation of the secondary literature followed by the method of analysis and comparison of the selected articles in the review Scéna review published between 1913 and 1914. Doing this research we have found out the main expressionist resource in the theatre was especially the stage economy, i. e. reducing decorations to the minimum, acting in unity, a simplicity and an utmost coordination of words and gestures. The greatest benefit of this work is exploring the period of the early expressionism as well as analysing the review Scéna which had a leading role in presenting modern drama then. Keywords Josef Kodíček, František Zavřel, the review Scéna, early expressionism, drama and theatre, avant-garde
Theory and reality in Teige's Manifestos and in Poetry of Representative Poets from Devětsil Artistic Federation
Ondrák, Vít ; Wiendl, Jan (advisor) ; Vojvodík, Josef (referee)
This thesis is devided into two parts. First part is theoretical and it is focused on the four specific manifestos of artistic movements by Karel Teige which were written in 1921, 1924 and 1928. I tried to focus on the comparative reading and interpretation of theses texts. The second part is about specific realization of representative collections of poems based on these Teige`s manifestos. Authors of these collections of poems are Jaroslav Seifert and his Město v slzách and Na vlnách TSF, Vítězslav Nezval with his Podivuhodný kouzelník and Pantomima and Konstantin Biebl's S lodí jež dováží čaj a kávu and Nový Ikaros. Key words: proletarian art, poeticism, Teige, avant-garde, poetry
Play of shifts, diffractions, discontinuities and ruptures. Seijun Suzuki's film sign seen from philosophical perspective of Jacquese Derrida.
Slavík, Benjamin ; Svatoňová, Kateřina (advisor) ; Vojvodík, Josef (referee)
This bachelor thesis deals with the relationship of the thoughts of the French post-structuralist philosopher Jacques Derrida and the film theory, or film media, respectively. Assumption of the thesis is folowing: The film sign, like other signs, does not show a coherent structure; instead of that is being filled with changes, breaks, gaps or cracks. The first part of the thesis focuses on the analysis of some Derrida terms: Supplement, Differänce, Hymen, and the iterable structure of a sign. The follow-up section relates Derrida's theory to the discourse of media philosophy, specifically to the thoughts of the German philosopher Dieter Mersch. The third part deals with the nature of the film suplement, thus, the relationship between the reality of the film and the representation of reality by the film. This lead up to a key chapter, which substitutes the film-analogue for the film-inscription. The final part deals with a deconstruction of the Japanese film Tokyo nagaremono (1966), which was chosen as an effective example of previously discussed theory - a structure of changes, breaks, gaps or cracks. Keywords Deconstruction, media philosophy, Jacques Derrida, Dieter Mersch, post-structuralism, Seijun Suzuki
The I against the world. Heroism and banality in the works of Ladislav Klíma
Klíma, Matěj ; Vojvodík, Josef (advisor) ; Hrdlička, Josef (referee)
The diploma thesis deals with the relationship between the subject and reality in the work of Ladislav Klíma. Klíma depicts reality as something distressing against which the I struggles. In his work he poses reality as a problem. Literary characters as well as numerous author autostylizations often get into conflict with reality and attempt to solve it by absurd behaviour, banalization of reality and heroization of the individuum. Creativity gains special importance in this situation, as it provides subject with a refuge from the external world. In the act of writing the I constitutes itself as rebelling against the "principle of reality". Inspirations for theoretical approach to the topic can be found in Freudian psychoanalysis, Nietzsche's concept of heroic man, as well as Heidegger's existential phenomenology.
Object in fin-de-siècle poetry
Härtelová, Eliška Dana ; Hrdlička, Josef (advisor) ; Vojvodík, Josef (referee)
v anglickém jazyce This thesis is based on the Kurt Oppert's term "Dinggedicht" (in English "object-poem" or "thing- poem"), through which it views the transformations within the conceptualization of the subject and things in modern poetry. Apart from poems associated with the name of R. M. Rilke, thingness is also seen from the perspective of the functional use of the object in a poem (e.g. a thing as a tool of characterization orironization), whichis related to theuse ofobjects in figurativelanguage - the thing as a part of the metaphor, simile or allegory. As part of the definition of a thing-poem, the thesis also deals with the issue of subject-object relationship, which leads also to the category of a lyrical "I" in the literary theory. The thesis is based on individual poems which represent a concrete, prototypical way of dealing with the subject in poetry. These poems are delimited by the second half of the 19th century and the first two decades of the 20th century. The thesis is not based on strictly defined national literature, but it considers the German, French and Czech context in the comparative perspective.
"His glory shined through my body." Dialogical poetry of Louise Glück
Boháčová, Kristýna ; Vojvodík, Josef (advisor) ; Wiendl, Jan (referee)
The thesis explores the variety of dialogue in the work of American poetess Louise Glück (*1943). It also points out three options for crossing over the aesthetics of absence. The analysis concerns mainly poems included in the collection The Wild Iris (1992), but it also takes in consideration Gluck's other poetical books such as Averno (2006) and Meadowlands (1996). After naming the nodes which make the contact in the collections, the thesis surpasses the field of literature for creating the dialogue with the aesthetics of absence according to German composer Heiner Goebbels (*1952), with the negative theology of French philosopher Simone Weil (1909-1943) and with the absence of the other in the paintings of Vilhelm Hammershøi (1864-1916). This interdisciplinary dialog seeks to describes one of the major tendencies of Gluck's poetry, which is the ghostly possibility of encountering with otherness
The literary work as a method of researching nonverbal and vocal communication
Hájek, Matěj ; Vojvodík, Josef (advisor) ; Šebek, Josef (referee)
In my thesis, I will be pondering on the resources of non- verbal material as well as on the methodology of research concerning this topic. The thesis will illustrate the problematics of authentic non-verbal communication derived from scientific publications written by chosen authorities. In the second part, I will introduce the theoretical basis in which I will clarify the reasons why even artistic literature can be considered a valuable tool of research and I will demostrate the effect on chosen extracts with references to the terminology introduced in the first part of my thesis. In this part, I will point out the contribution of artistic literature to the scientific research as well as its possible typology. Key words non-verbal communication, systematization of means, verbalization, interpretation, exposition, discourse, pseudo- reality
Czech Faces of Franz Kafka before World War II
Soukup, Jiří ; Holý, Jiří (advisor) ; Heczková, Libuše (referee) ; Vojvodík, Josef (referee)
The present study focuses on the analysis of the changes of Franz Kafka's reception in the Czech context before World War II, i. e. on the analysis of Czech translations and critical reflections in Czech language of his works. The study is divided into two symmetrical (in time) parts: the first one focuses on Kafka's reception in his lifetime (1909-1922), the second one on the reception after his death (1924-1939). In the first part, translations of Kafka's office publications are analyzed in the context of their origin, Kafka's part (as an author) in the formation of the original texts as a source for their translation and set in the context of his belletristic works; in the prosopographically oriented analysis the aim is further focused on the reception of Kafka's belletristic texts in his lifetime and on different strategies of translation by authors who translated his texts into Czech during his lifetime (Milena Jesenská, Milena Illová, Jaroslav Dohnal), Kafka's responses and how they are reflected in his work. The analysis in the second part is structured mainly according to the tendencies of reception whose focus shifts gradually from expressionist to surrealistic interpretations; the analysis of gradual changes of Kafka's image in the Czech press which reflects the changing reception of his...
The problem of identity in the novel The Long Lost Glory of the Patriarchy by Pavel Brycz
Didora, Anna ; Vojvodík, Josef (advisor) ; Vučka, Tomáš (referee)
This diploma thesis deals with the problem of identity in the novel by contemporary Czech writer Pavel Brycz The Long Lost Glory of the Patriarchy. It emerges from the concept of identity as a process of understanding one's self, the meaning of one's life, one's awareness of his place in an individual image of the world. Based on analysis of characters we try to show how Pavel Brycz portrays various aspects of identity (national, personal, social, professional, gender). Structurally, the thesis is divided into two parts: the first one is devoted to the basic characteristics of identity and represents the generalization of various concepts of identity from the point of view of philosophy, psychology, sociology and literary theory; the second part deals with the analysis of the characters of Brycz's novel The Long Lost Glory of the Patriarchy, which shows that each character carries a certain distinctive identity.
Between Literature and Photography. Reading of (Empty) Places in the Works of G. Rodenbach, W.G. Sebald and P. Král
Sechovcová, Monika ; Hrdlička, Josef (advisor) ; Vojvodík, Josef (referee)
The thesis examines the relationship between (photographic) image and text in two novels accompanied by photographs: Georges Rodenbach's Bruges-la-Morte and The Rings of Saturn by W. G. Sebald. As in the essence of photographic image lies the question of its relation to reality, we decided to make from the theme of relation between reality and fiction, which differs according the type of representation, our central theme. The thesis is also concerned with the themes of passing, mourning and order, which connect examined novels. Our interpretation is based mainly on Roland Barthes' theoretical text Le message photographique in which he defines various types of photographic connotation that we search in analyzed phototexts. Concerning the partial theme of connection between photograph and death we base our analysis on Barthes' Camera Lucida, than we proceed mainly from the essays of the collection Co je to fotografie which concern with photographic pose (Thierry de Duve), photograph and remembering (André Bazin), photograph and mirror (Craig Owens).
