Between structuralism and New criticism. (Theoretical consequences in the work of Rene Wellek).
BOROVKOVÁ, Gabriela
This bachelor's thesis deals with the Czech-American literary scholar René Wellek's literary theory. It attempts to put it into the context of the two most notable theoretical schools, which was René Wellek directly influenced by and whose discourse he participated in, namely Czech Structuralism and Anglo-American New Criticism. Based on selected body of Wellek's theoretical work, I point out the similarities to the ideas of both critical groups' most eminent representatives as well as differences from them. The main subject of my attention is Wellek's programme of criticism as an academic discipline and his conception of literature and literary work of art as a subject of research, but I also consider Wellek's writing style and his methodological approach in analysing and interpretation of specific literary works of art. The objective of my thesis is to point out to mutual relations rather than "classify" the scholar as either a Structuralist or a New Critic.
