Kýčková, Karolína ; Merhaut, Luboš (advisor) ; Heczková, Libuše (referee)
The bachelor thesis deals with the poetic work of the writer Irma Geisslová (1855-1914). On the basis of a chronological overview, description and analysis focused primarily on the themes, motifs and poetic practices of the author's individual published collections, the thesis aims to capture the characteristic features, forms and transformations of Geisslová's poetry, while reflecting, to the extent necessary, her contemporary responses and criticism.
Erotic mystical concept of lyric subject in the hymns of Zachariáš Jelínek's hymnbook
Churáčková, Karolína ; Škarpová, Marie (advisor) ; Heczková, Libuše (referee)
The thesis is focused on hymnbook Písně jednoho pravdivého milovníka muk Ježíšových, which was published anonymously by Moravian exile Zacharias Jelinek in Berlin in 1758. It's a brief contribution to research about the influnce of pietistic movement in Czech literature aimed to point out an insufficient reflection of this topic in Czech literary historiography. The theme of this thesis is an analysis of lyrical subject in the hymns of Zacharias Jelinek's hymnbook in the context of pietistic hymnography and the tradition of christian erotic mysticism in general. Attention is given to the specific form of mystic relationship between the lyrical subject of Jelinek's hymns and Jesus Christ as the object of lyrical subject's affection.
Poet Irma Geissslová: Private and public
Pohlová, Anna ; Heczková, Libuše (advisor) ; Merhaut, Luboš (referee)
This bachelors thesis looks at the work of Irma Geisslová through the lens of dichotomy "public" vs. "private". The theoretical section defines those essential terms, "public" and "private", and then extends the dichotomy with third term, "intimate". The theoretical section then introduces two specific subgenres of the diary, poetic diary and journal intime. Second part of the thesis aims to create two portraits of Geisslová's work, public and private, which are followed by analysis of Geisslová's intimate diary from 1896. The analysis focuses on composition, themes and motifs of the diary. The diary is unique in its monothemacity, to which all the motifs are subordinated to. Additionally, although the diary is mostly isolated from other private work, it contains motifs that permeate both the private work and the diary. Key words: Poetry of 19th century, Irma Geisslová, diary, public, private, intimate, women
Hana Prošková's Detective Fiction
Hrnčárková, Anna ; Holý, Jiří (advisor) ; Heczková, Libuše (referee)
v angličtině This thesis focuses on selected detective stories written by Hana Prošková (Měsíc s dýmkou, 1966; Černé jako smola, 1969) and novel Stínová hra 1969 that include the detective duo of professional first lieutenant (later captain) Vašátko and bohemian painter Horác. This unlikely duo (sensible, grumpy, surly, inductively reasoning Vašátko on one side and eccentric, intuitively approaching Horác on the other), suggestive portrayal, and witty dialogue allow the author to play out unconventional plots that are far from being only about solving the case. The paper will concentrate on the psychological motivation of the crime and the actions of the individual characters and on the raised questions regarding guilt, justice, and ethics, which go beyond the conventions of the detective genre and crime fiction.
Czech Underground Female Writers
Kubáč, Vilém ; Heczková, Libuše (advisor) ; Machovec, Martin (referee)
This thesis will concentrate on Czech underground women writers. It takes into account the phenomenon of "women's writing" and the positionof women writers within mainly male underground community.It assumes that the women writers in Czech underground consciouslycreated within the "women's writing" or that they were influencedby feminism. The thesis poses a question whether women writers in the underground were more emancipatedthan official or engaged writers in other countercultural communities,and also than women in the underground and outside the underground who were not literaryactive. It compares the work and the position of the women writers in the Czech underground with the those who createdliterature in the West. Female underground creators were very often engaged in music or visual arts, so the comparison with their other artistic activitieswill be important too. The thesis will focuse onthe period of culture startingfrom the 50s and the phenomenon of the "Edice Půlnoc" and Jana Krejcarová to the punk generation of the 80s.
The Image of Female Exotic Dancers in Czech Literature during the Twenties
Wagebaertová, Elizabeth ; Vaněk, Václav (advisor) ; Heczková, Libuše (referee)
1 Abstract This bachelor thesis focuses on the intersection of gender and postcolonial analysis of exotic female dancers in selected works of Czech literature in the 1920s and 1930s. The characters themselves represent the intersection of different sorts of inequalities. They also combine many other topics such as dance, hierarchical power dynamics, gender and orientalist discourse. Therefore, I decided to use an interdisciplinary approach. The two introductory chapters provide the readers with some contextual information about real exotic dancers such as Josephine Baker, Mata Hari and Anita Berber in order to demonstrate the importance of this phenomenon. The third chapter summarizes the methodological approach used in this thesis and the fourth chapter presents the theoretical concepts that all my arguments are based on. The analysis of the main characters presented in the chosen works - specifically Divoška Jaja by Benjamin Klička, Gita Turaja by Anna Marie Tilschová and Rozkošnice by Jan Grmela - is offered in the following chapters. The paper concludes by confirming that despite some recurring motifs and similarities, the category of exotic dancers cannot be conceived as a homogeneous group.
Food, Women, and Personal IdentitySelected Chapters from Contemporary Czech Prose
Słowik, Olga ; Heczková, Libuše (advisor) ; Parente Čapková, Viola (referee) ; Matonoha, Jan (referee)
The aim of this thesis is to analyse selected ways in which contemporary Czech prose manifests the complex interconnection of personal (female) identity, gender, and dietary practices. The first part of the thesis develops a theoretical and methodological framework based on anthropologizing approaches to literature, especially those developed in contemporary Polish literary criticism. In these approaches, literature is understood as one kind of linguistic - and more broadly cultural - practice, and interpretation is taken to be one of the most important tasks of literary research. Another theoretical impulse is feminist criticism, which the thesis reflects in its gynocritical selection of texts to analyse and in its understanding of corporeality, everyday life, and personal identity as always gendered. The main part of the thesis consists of four relatively separate interpretative chapters (2-5), which are probes into different ways in which personal (female) identity, gender, and dietary practices are grasped in contemporary Czech prose. The second chapter focuses on autobiographical prose by female authors who have experienced anorexia. The chapter traces the authors' association of the illness with the search for the self, and it addresses key aspects of this search, such as the conflict between...

The purpose of this work is to introduce the heroines in their proses Divá Bára, Karla and Pohorská vesnice (Němcová), Kříž u potoka, Vesnický román a Frantina (Světlá), provide their characteristics as well as to grasp their conception and meaning. Subsequently, the thesis compares the depictions of women of the two novelists, even with regard to the period circumstances during their creation. Part of this thesis also focuses on taking the development of the women's movement (first within Europe, then directly in Bohemia) and its pillars into account along with the introduction of figures, who contributed to the solution of the so-called Woman's issue.
Possibilities of poetry in school on the example of the poetry by Jan Skácel
Marušák, Vít ; Králíková, Andrea (advisor) ; Heczková, Libuše (referee)
The thesis deals with didactic-methodical grasp of Jan Skácel's poetic work. The author of the thesis selects collections and poems so that they can functionally withstand the educational process as examples of the specifics of Skácel's poetic world. The thesis brings interpretations of selected poems and proposals for their didactic and methodical grasp. In this way a variety of methods and procedures are created that can be applied to work with lyric poetry in general. The thesis first elaborates both literary theoretical and branch didactic starting points which consider primarily from the point of view of usability and functionality in the educational process. Then it brings four didactic probes which apply these starting points to specific lyrical material. The author uses the theoretical concepts of lyric poetry by Jonathan Culler and Miroslav Červenka. These create a basic theoretical framework which is applied and thought at the didactic level. The didactic inspiration is the basic works from the didactics of literary education by Ladislava Lederbuchová, Zdeněk Kožmín, Vladimír Nezkusil and Ondřej Hník. These starting points will make it possible to think about the position and possibilities of lyrical poetry in school and to propose ways of grasping it. At the level of the interpretation...
