Solodukhin, Yury ; Benešová, Michala (advisor) ; Holý, Jiří (referee)
Bachelor's work Czesław Milosz: "Un autre Europe" - "Jiná Evropa" explores the reasons why the title of the Czeslaw Milosz's book "Native Europe" was changed in different translations to such an extent that in France the book came out as "The Other Europe". The work consists of three main parts. In the first part, the author views contradictions as one of the main aspects of Miłosz's work, paying attention to two bipolar oppositions: West-East and City-Province. In the second, the author examines the civilizational theories of Spengler, Danilevsky and Huntington in order to understand the location of the "Other Europe" on the world map. The third is the consideration of the late university lectures and essays by Czeslaw Milosz "O tożsamości" and "O naszej Europe", their juxtaposition with the essays of Milan Kundura "The tragedy of central Europe", also it affirms the thesis that in modern times Central Europe becomes the custodian of historical memory and traditional European values and considered conception of «Małych ojczyzn»

God's intention is repented of the heart. The message of book of Haggai coincide...

Transformation of Poetics in Milan Kundera's Novels
Eder, Kryštof ; Špirit, Michael (advisor) ; Holý, Jiří (referee)
This thesis compares The Joke and Immortality, the first and the last of Kundera's novel, which were written in Czech. It also follows other Kundera's novels written in Czech and his essays. Firstly, the narrative strategies of the two novels are analyzed, including not only the narrative strategies themselves, but also the reasons of them being used. Afterwards, two Kundera's main themes - poetry and death - are analyzed. The aim is to prove that their form is almost contradictory in the two novels. It is also suggested, during the analysis of these themes, how their form affects narrative strategy and fiction world of the novels. The main purpose of these comparations is to prove that Immortality stands apart among seven Kunde- ra's novels, so it is not correct to regard seven Kundera's novels as one continuous text.
