Suldovská, Klára ; Šuman, Záviš (advisor) ; Mudrochová, Radka (referee)
This thesis treats the oldest method of graphic dance notation system - so-called Beauchamp- Feuillet's dance notation. I will explain the circumstances of its origins, the basic rules, the principles of its writing and reading, the literary and historical value and the later reception. The core of my work will be a translation of Feuillet's major work, Orchesography Or, the art of dancing, which is besides the Pierre Rameau's writings considered the basic guide and sort of a handbook dealing with the description of dance. Also the later authors based their works on Feuillet. I will certainly deal with the literary and language point of view of the book. The differences among particular editions, for example, are worth the study. In the second part of my work I shall describe how the dance - that we can reconstruct nowadays predominantly thanks to the Beauchamp-Feuillet's notation - was put on stage in some dramas at the court of Louis XIV and what was its role. Keywords Baroque dance, Orchesography, Feuillet's dance notation, la belle danse

Nepilová, Tereza ; Šuman, Záviš (advisor) ; Voldřichová - Beránková, Eva (referee)
in English The bachelor thesis deals with a narrative category of unreliable narrator in selected novels by Honoré de Balzac. Our aim is to analyse the narrative strategies displayed in the novels in connection with theories of discourse, to describe the function of various types of narrators and to characterize the relation between the narrator and other narrative categories. We have mainly focused on modern unreliable narrator conceptions pertaining to the rhetorical and cognitivist approach, and by applying it on selected Balzac novels we try to see whether and to what extent it is suitable for the analysis. Incidentally, we have also studied the influence of literary movements (Literary Romanticism/Realism) on various modes of narration.

Frešerová, Eliška ; Voldřichová - Beránková, Eva (advisor) ; Šuman, Záviš (referee)
This paper is dedicated to one of the vices, jealousy, and its study in three medieval romances in which jealousy is one of the main themes. The romances are Tirant lo Blanc, Flamenca and The Romance of the Rose. These texts offer, in addition, a possibility to compare the approach to jealousy in different areas, which are contemporary Catalonia, northern and southern France (Occitania), and in various literary traditions - in a Catalan chivalry romance Tirant lo Blanc, being late from the French point of view (end of the 15th century) and so being very different too, then in a typical courtesy romance Flamenca, where jealousy has an important role thanks to the topos castia gilos (a punishment of a jealous man) and finally The Romance of the Rose containing many courtesy elements but being original at the same time. Key words: medieval romance, jealousy, Occitan, Catalan, French, vices, courtesy, chivalry romance

Burdová, Zuzana ; Voldřichová - Beránková, Eva (advisor) ; Šuman, Záviš (referee)
This thesis aims to approach the representation of the death in the Britannic folklore throughout the work of three important Britannic folklorists: Marie-François Luzel (1824- 1895), his disciple Anatole Le Braz (1859-1926) and abbé François Cadic (1864-1929). The work describes how the vison oh the death developed historically in the Celtic mythology and in Christianism. To give a more complex idea of Britannic folklore the thesis treats its typical aspects, describes the genesis and the transformation of its emblematic character, Ankou, and briefly presents the world of deceased souls, commonly called Anaon. It aims furthermore to introduce the life and the motivation of the three authors and to portray the socio-cultural context in contemporary Brittany. The second part is firstly based on the analysis of some chosen mythological tales and the courteous novel Lancelot ou le Chevalier de la charrette by Chrétien de Troyes, examining its characters by means of the archetypal triangle proposed by Daniela Hodrová and the initiatory journey of the main characters. Secondly, the work explains what the "veillée" represents in the oral literature, as well as its connection to the "récit légendaire" (developed by Le Braz) which is later compared to the Luzel tale. This part treats also the style of...

Kokeš, Kevin ; Šuman, Záviš (advisor) ; Pohorský, Aleš (referee)
(anglicky) The main objective of this BA thesis Image of Napoleon Bonaparte in the Works of Stendhal is to uncover on the basis of intertextual analysis of Stendhal's works a way of Stendhal's attitudes to Napoleon Bonaparte. Due to the complexity of Stendhal's character, diversity of genres he took interest in and specificity of era in which and about he was writing, we'll have to examine closely author's life which is the subject of our second chapter. The definition of historical novel and autobiography in relation to the veracity shall depict and make clear why the author has chosen these two specific genres, a consideration which we devolop mainly in the third chapter. The fourth chapter is devoted to the importance of historical context for Stendhal's novel creation. We pay particular attention to Stendhal's criticism of Bourbon Restoration and his Napoleonic idolatry, the strict opposition between those conflicting attitudes which is very typical for Stendhal's novels. The fifth chapter deals with particular examples of Stendhal's protagonists of The Red and the Black and The Charterhouse of Parma who are the supporting pillars of the contrast between the two eras mentioned above. In a certain manner, the fifth chapter is but an extension of the previous one with the difference that it...

Antiheroes in French Roman Noir
Karkovský, Radek ; Voldřichová - Beránková, Eva (advisor) ; Šuman, Záviš (referee)
(in English): This work will consist in an analysis of the antiheroes in modern French literature, especially in "Roman Noir". Before treating the topic of antiheroes in mystery fiction we will describe the history of this type of protagonists in world literatures, from the classic literature to the modern one. To be able to understand the problematics of antiheroes in Roman Noir, we will also describe the history of French mystery fiction. Regarding the analysis of antiheroes in this sub- genre of crime fiction, we will start with the character of Maigret. Although the novels of G. Simenon are not real Romans Noirs, we consider them as a "passage" of the detective novel - in the traditional sense - to the Roman Noir. Furthermore, in this work, we will analyze characters of real Romans Noirs; first, the crude and surprising behavior of Nestor Burma, a famous character of Léo Malet, then the mediocrity of protagonists of the novels Morgue pleine and Le Petit Bleu de la côte ouest of Jean-Patrick Manchette, and finally, Fabio Montale, an atypical investigator from a novel series of the late twentieth century written by Jean-Claude Izzo.

Pautava, Maryia ; Šuman, Záviš (advisor) ; Pohorský, Aleš (referee)
The bachelor thesis will focus on stylistic (linguistic and literary) analysis of Corinne or Italy, a novel by Germaine de Staël. This extensive novel is unique in its ambiguous narrative, which lies in multilayered overlap between individual storytelling instances. Criticism also highlights the autobiographical features of this novel. We notice to what extent the story of the narrator with the real attitude of Mme de Staël can be identified in this novel, and how the way of narration leads a dialogue with the reader. Our analysis will result in the complex characterization of this significant early romantic novel.
