The Manipulation of Character and Reader in Selected Works of Czech Fiction
Balcárková, Tereza ; Holý, Jiří (advisor) ; Merhaut, Luboš (referee)
The bachelor's thesis will focus on four works of Czech literature, in which the specific narrative strategy of the narrator (or the author) manifests itself as unreliable. These are Karel Čapek's short story Šlépěj (first published in book form in 1917 in Boží muka), Richard Weiner's short story Prázdná židle (first published in 1919 in the book Škleb), Ladislav Fuchs's novel Myši Natálie Mooshabrové (first published in 1971) and Milan Kundera's novel Nesmrtelnost (first published in French in 1990, in Czech in 1993). The difference in the historical context of the creation of these works allows for a deeper comparison of the different modes of the "reliable" and "unreliable" narrator.
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.
