The pseudo-Vergilian Poem Ciris: Weaving as Narrative Technique (study and prosaique translation)
Filipová, Nikola ; Bažil, Martin (advisor) ; Ctibor, Michal (referee)
This thesis deals with translation and interpretation of pseudovergilian epyllion Ciris, which tells a story of traitorous princess of Megara, Scylla, who betrays her father Nísos by cutting off his magical purple lock. With it she surrenders the entire city to the enemy Minos in order to secure his love. Her plan ultimately fails and as a result she is transformed into a brand new bird named the ciris. The first part of the thesis provides a literary-theoretical study of the epyllion based on comparison with the sources of the myth and other latin poems, as it seems as if Ciris was composed by an anonymous young disciple in a late latin cento style but only published in his older age. Some ascribe it to young Virgil or Cornelius Gallus. In the course of the study the following questions will be answered: Is Scylla's transformation a liberation or punishment for her crime? What is the role of nutrix in the epyllion and what is her literary origin? How does the author deal with the weaving metaphore? The second part of the thesis offers a first prosaic translation of Ciris into czech language with a humble commentary where deemed necessary.

Seneca's Tragedies and their Reception in the Jesuit School Theatre of the Bohemian Province in the 17th and 18th Centuries (1623-1773) Eva Popelková Abstract The study of the reception of Seneca's tragedies in the Jesuit School theatre in the Bohemian province is focused on three aspects: the description of the mechanism and the expression of passions; the pedagogical issue linked to the figure of a tyrant, with an emphasis on female characters; and the image of pagan gods. The research is based on a comparison of Senecan tragedies and school plays from the Society of Jesus. The corpus consists of three parts: the printed plays of Carolus Kolczawa; the plays of Arnoldus Engel, both staged and intended for publication; and the plays devoted to John of Nepomuk, the emblematic saint of the Czech baroque period, which were not to be published. The analyses are preceded by an overview of the Senecan reception in the Early Modern Europe, the presentation of the Jesuit context and the studied corpus. Keywords Seneca, reception, Jesuit theatre, School theatre, Neo-Latin literature, Bohemian province, 17th century, 18th century
Elements of Irony in the Bucolic Works of Calpurnius Siculus
Stříbrná, Adéla ; Bažil, Martin (advisor) ; Kuťáková, Eva (referee)
This bachelor's thesis focuses on the Latin bucolic poet Calpurnius Siculus and his collection of eclogues. Firstly, it summarizes the complex and hotly disputed topic of the dating of the author and his oeuvre. The thesis then offers a brief résumé of the primary arguments favouring the two main time frames: the Neronian times (1st century AD) and the 3rd century AD - the rule of Emperor Severus Alexander. The subsequent chapter details the formation and evolution of the bucolic genre and the lives of its two main representatives in Antiquity: Theocritus and Virgil, both of whom Calpurnius drew upon in his work. The following chapter contains a theoretic analysis of the term irony and of the means and ways it is expressed in a text. The thesis centres on an interpretation of select extracts from Calpurnius's work, focusing on irony and the methods of irony used by him.

Pastyříková, Iveta ; Bažil, Martin (advisor) ; Fořt, Bohumil (referee)
IVETA PASTYŘÍKOVÁ: ORDER, PROGRESS, AND IDEAL GOVERNMENT IN CLAUDIAN'S EPIC DE RAPTU PROSERPINAE ABSTRACT The aim of the diploma thesis is to show how late Ancient poet Claudius Claudianus deals with the problem of ideal government in the mythological epic De Raptu Proserpinae, by which strategies he exhorts his reader to evaluate Jupiter's rule in the world of the poem and to compare it with the situation in the real world. The chosen method is the theory of fictional worlds. Firstly, the thesis outlines the relation between the fictional world of the epic and the real world, then, the attention is paid to the essential question of this fictional world, ideal government. The thesis presents the prefaces of the epic as entrances into the fictional world foreshadowing topics elaborated in the world of the poem, where the ruler Jupiter has a difficult task ahead of him: to harmonize progress with protection against chaos. The last chapter summarizes the author's strategies and compares the epic with Claudian's other poems.
