Tomášek, Lukáš ; Heczková, Libuše (advisor) ; Wiendl, Jan (referee)
The bachelor thesis deals with the aims, methods and means of communication published in the magazine called Vlajka during 1928-1942 period. Mostly it focuses on the topic of Jewry and Communism (based on the sources and specialised literature study it presents the most striking Jew and Communist presentation models) - regarded as national enemies due to the Vlajka's "fight". The thesis also concerns Christianity, which is a form of defence from Jewry and Communism for Vlajka. Author's interest also lies in the belles-lettres texts' character and Vlajka's relations to art and chosen Czech literature personas. Eventually, the paper reflects ways of thinking on the woman (and woman social role) theme.

The Poetics of Vladimír Holan in Collections of the 1930s. From Neosymbolism to Creative Citizen Commitment
Šimková, Hana ; Wiendl, Jan (advisor) ; Špirit, Michael (referee) ; Komenda, Petr (referee)
This thesis analyzes the poetics of Holan's Triumf smrti (1930, revised in 1936, 1948, 1965), collections written in the period of neosymbolism - Vanutí (1932, ultimately revised in 1965), Oblouk (1934, ultimately revised in 1965) and Kameni, přicházíš… (1937, ultimately revised in 1965) as well as collections reacting to the Munich Agreement and following historical events - Odpověď Francii (written in 1938, first published as late as 1946 in the compilation Havraním brkem), Září 1938 (1938), Zpěv tříkrálový (written in 1938-1939, first published as late as 1946 in the compilation Havraním brkem), Sen (1939), Chór (1941). In the first place, the thesis focuses on identifying the rhythmic structure of the individual collections, their constants and gradual transition. Part of the exploration of poetics is the determination of the function of the rhythmic constants in the individual collections, accompanied by an attempt to demonstrate that the rhythmic building of verse together with its instrumentation belongs to the essential components of Holan's poetics of that period. Furthermore, the thesis deals with the semantics of Holan's poetics in the given collections of his, especially the analysis of the basic features of the poet's metaphor and metonymy, their mutual relationship and permeation....

"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 Image of the City in the Early Formation of Jiří Kolář
Knappová, Alžběta ; Wiendl, Jan (advisor) ; Heczková, Libuše (referee)
This bachelor's thesis focuses on how Jiří Kolář depicts the city in his poems in the first half of the 1940s. As a member of Group 42 (known as Skupina 42 in Czech), Kolář was strongly influenced by its poetics. Disagreeing with the tendencies of art for art's sake in modern art, the group aimed to depict reality as truthfully as possible and to create art that would be of use to people and the society. The reality and the people were supposed to be shown without stylization. In particular, the artists' main focus was to portray the reality of the metropolis, because, according to Group 42, it was the natural environment for modern people. This thesis analyses the literary devices used by Kolář to depict the reality of the city and their development in time. The analysis relies on a broader theoretical framework of the poetics of the city in literature. It is shown that, when depicting his own experience with the city, Kolář uses features of the spoken mode and contrast. He connects those into elaborate structures as a reflection of the non-linear nature and complexity of reality. Kolář's city is not a background for action - it presents itself as a living organism, just like human life.
Czech Literary Anarchism in the Context of Socialism and the Women's Movement (1890-1914)
Hylmar, Radek ; Heczková, Libuše (advisor) ; Wiendl, Jan (referee) ; Merhautová, Lucie (referee)
Czech Literary Anarchism in the Context of Socialism and the Women's Movement (1890-1914) Abstract The thesis focuses on Czech pre-WWI anarchism. It analyses it as a modernist movement comprising various activities spanning political propaganda, proposals of social organisation and thinking about moral values as well views on the arts and literary production. The aim is to present literary texts written by anarchists against a backdrop of other types of expression. At the same time, the thesis assesses anarchism in the historical context of other political, social, artistic and philosophical movements. We study the interweaving of ideological and aesthetic schemes of Czech anarchism, especially with socialism and feminism, but also concerning decadence, Friedrich Nietzsche's philosophy and writings of the German Friedrichshagen poets' and anarchists' circle. The thesis focuses on how anarchism understands human beings and their relationship to the world and society. Given the anarchists' focus on the free individual, we present strategies of emancipation from traditional conventions and institutions such as marriage, family and the state. We also concentrate on reforms concerning morals and similarities with the feminist turn to one's own bodily and psychical experiences as starting points for setting...
