Literature of architextual tension
Šidák, Pavel ; Wiendl, Jan (advisor) ; Bílek, Petr (referee) ; Vojvodík, Josef (referee)
The dissertation deals with the literature influenced by religious experience. We do not attempt an overall solution of the issue of the relationship between aesthetics and theology; our goal is to describe the so-called "Catholic" literature as one of the possible models of "religious" literature. An ideal example of this model and the material basis of the thesis is Jan Čep's book Zeměžluč (Centaury, 1931). The study is divided into three parts: the first one summarizes the existing discussion of the problem in general (chapter 1), in theology and literary criticism (chapters 2 and 4), and it examines the usability of the term "ideology" (chapter 3). The second part develops our theoretical basis, the theory of intertextuality and interdiscursivity (chapter 6). The subject of this study is not a literary-historical era nor a genre in the traditional sense. We see it as a coalescence of two textual (semiotic) areas. The theory of interdiscursivity allows us to follow the textualization of religion: the mechanism through which real Catholicism as a religious fact turns into a system of signs, i.e. into a text, which is subject to the general laws and possibilities of a text description (Lotman, Piatigorski) (chapter 7). We regard the resulting area of a literary structure as a homogenous phenomenon of...

"In the way of preface", the introduction of the novel The Man Without Qualities
Hummel, Michaela ; Pokorný, Martin (advisor) ; Bílek, Petr (referee)
(English) is thesis is concerned with the opening section"A Sort of Introduction" of Robert Musil's e Man Without Qualities. It follows the plot developed throughout the evolution of the main character Ulrich, and his gradual realization that he is a "man without qualities" and that he needs to "take a break from life," as the discovery of a starting position for his life experiment. Closer reading is given to the "other condition" that Ulrich discovers in his nightly adventure. e idea of mystical unification touches on the central theme of love and eroticism, which are in various aspects, characterized by both Leona and Bonadea. Broadly understood the concept of unification, as a form of unfulfilled need, transforms into a "projection surface" on which we can see the suppressed inclinations of individuals and society, leading among other things to the rehabilitation of the philosophical construct of "Genius", the search for a type of "strong individual",that will be able to withstand the demands of the"new era;"- reflected in this section by Clarisse and Walter. Along with this "story" level of the text, I follow in a few subchapters what we may call the"imaginative"level,that is,the collection of themes that show the"internal" perspective of storytelling. For example, the motive of a window being...

Vučka, Tomáš ; Bílek, Petr (referee)
The basic themes in Schulz's works is the concept of beauty, together with the possibility of artistic expression and humanism as determinative ethical value.

Two centuries of Serbian novel
Doležal, Jan ; Bílek, Petr (advisor)
This dissertation is the first complex presentation of the Serbian novel in the 19th and 20th centuries. The dissertation deals with the dynamics in the development of the Serbian novel from its beginning till the year 2000 and helps to create a complex picture based on concise analyses of 165 novels. The dissertation depicts the ways in which Serbian authors adopted universal stylistic forms (Sentimentalism, Realism, Modernism, Expressionism, Surrealism, Nouveau roman, Postmodernism) and focuses on autochthonic styles in Serbian prose (Zenitism, Neonaturalism, Nationalistic Realism). It demonstrates the high quality of the Serbian novel, but it also points out the weaknesses and cul-de-sacs of the Serbian novel. The centre of the dissertation covers the years 1961-2000 since this period has not been systematically worked on, despite the fact that the novel genre played a major role in Serbian literature in the last 40 years of the twentieth century. The most significant feature of the Serbian novel, which for rather a long time (till the twenties of the last century) lagged behind the novels of the so-called dominant literatures, is its close association with the turbulent history of a nation with opposing cultures, religions and socio-political systems. The authors, regardless of poetic adherence to...
Danube: journey, memory, city and death
Satinská, Lucia ; Bílek, Petr (advisor)
The thesis Danube: Journey, Memory, City and Death is, to a certain extent, a personal search for today's meaning of the river Danube in literature and culture. Practically, it contains texts from the antiquity until today, not chronologically, but in motivic spirals of journey, memory, city and death. It is geographically linked especially to German- Austrian, Slovak and Hungarian space. The chapters are buoy-like, because together they form the characteristics of Danubian culture, which are border, appropriation, palimpsest quality, and pleasure seeking. The chapter about journey deals predominantly with searching for Danube's identity and the character of traveler. The chapter about memory analyses chosen places of memory and certain historical figures. The third chapter, dedicated to Danubian metropoli (Vienna, Bratislava and Budapest), searches for common traits of their soul, which are realized through the concepts of border, pleasure and bridge. The last chapter about death in Danube deals with both images of death and river beings - fairies and nymphs. The whole text represents certain literary-cultural anthropology of Danube.
Phenomena of death and dying in Czech literature of the 20th century
Záborcová, Milada ; Bílek, Petr (advisor) ; Papoušek, Vladimír (referee) ; Med, Jaroslav (referee)
The dissertation thesis deals with distinct semantic levels of the theme of death and dying in a large context of Czech poetry and prose-fiction of the 20th century. In the first two chapters, the approach is supposed to cover broader interpretations of the treatment of death and dying based on philosophical, psychological, medical, ethic, and spiritual background. Due to the large range of the material, just essential frames of the attitudes towards dying are outlined, focusing on European medieval context and older texts of Czech literature. Philosophical background focuses on texts of selected writers who influenced Czech literature of the 20th century and/or were explicitly or implicitly reflected in it. The image of death and dying in Czech literature of the 20th century is analyzed in chapters that are based on periodisation that reflects substantial changes in the perception of death and in the ways of its verbal visualization in literature. The classification of texts is divided into five types based on the differences of the images of death in the composition of distinct literary texts. The first group has the specificities of texts of poetry and prose-fiction of catholic background: the authors, facing the secularization of the world in the first third of the 20th century, have to reflect the...

Ledinská, Šárka ; Bílek, Petr (advisor) ; Kubíček, Tomáš (referee) ; Šidák, Pavel (referee)
This dissertation has two main aims. The first is to describe or specify the poetics of "own" and "foreign" space in literary work in general and in the fairy tales of K. J. Erben, the Grimm brothers, B. Němcová or L. Bechstein; the second is to analyse and compare the poetics in three spatial pairs the "own" and "foreign" spaces in relation to the main character of the above-mentioned fairy tales representing, namely in the spaces of home and journey, the living and the dead or welfare and poverty. The first part of the thesis is mostly theoretical and is primarily focused on the first set goal, i. e. the description and specification of the poetics of "own" and "foreign" spaces as well as on related phenomena, such as the definition of concepts "space", "own", "foreign", "own and foreign space", "place", "character", "subject of own and foreign space", analysis of the character's relationships to space, evolution of humans relationship to space and their perspective on it in history and literature with a special focus on spatial turn etc. The second, predominantly analytical-comparative part of the thesis, connected mainly with the second set goal of the dissertation, focuses with the help of secondary literature in the field of humanities and specifically selected fairy-tale aspects on the...
"I Become Speech." Death and Return of the Author in the Perspective of Philosophy of Identity
Martinovská, Anna ; Šebek, Josef (advisor) ; Bílek, Petr (referee)
Diploma thesis "I become speech." Death and Return of the Author in the Perspective of Philosophy of Identity focuses on the question of inclusion of the author into the interpretation of literary text and aims to highlight the fruitfulness of such inclusion as well as some of its dangers. The thesis is divided into three parts. In the first part the author of the thesis presents a polemic account of some antiauthorial approaches, especially the "death of the author" as appearing in the texts of R. Barthes, M. Foucault and Jacques Derrida, along with a short mention of antiintentionalism of W. K Wimsatt and M. C. Beardsley and a theory of the model author by U. Eco. The common feature of the aforementioned antiauthorial theories is a reductive idea of the author and his relation to text - the problematic aspects of authorial interpretation, which their texts wish to make evident, is then only a consequence of the problematic underlying notion of the author-subject. The second part of the thesis intends to present an alternative theoretical understanding of the "real author" using the philosophy of identity od J. Butler and P. Bourdieu. These authors are proposing a theory of a person who is not understood as a "real thing" that would be available for a complete delimitation, description and...
