Ladislav Grosman's Short Stories
Hradecká, Andrea ; Holý, Jiří (advisor) ; Králíková, Andrea (referee)
This bachelor thesis deals with the analysis of Ladislav Grosman's prose, set in the period of the Slovak Holocaust. The analysis focuses on Jewish characters, narrative techniques, language and style in Grosman's selected prose works. Additional chapters introduce the author's literary work, his membership in the Jewish minority and its influence on the work as a whole. Another possibility is to compare Grosman's images of Jews with the story Sedliak by the non-Jewish writer František Švantner. The conclusion summarizes the findings so far and offers further possible explorations Key Words Ladislav Grosman, Nevěsta (The Bride), short stories, Jewish characters, Holocaust, Spisy Ladislava Grosmana, Jews, narrative practices, language, style
Journalism of Jaroslav Seifert in the Years 1929-1938
Polívková, Barbora ; Holý, Jiří (advisor) ; Smějsíková, Magdaléna (referee)
The work will focus on the cultural and political articles and polemics that Jaroslav Seifert led in the years 1929-1938. In the spring of 1929, Seifert was expelled from the Communist Party along with other signatories of the leaflet Communist Writers to Communist Workers. Since then, he has not published in the communist press and published his contributions in social democratic periodicals and in the liberal press (Právo lidu, Večerník Prava lidu, Ranní noviny, Pestré kvety, Literární noviny and others). Until the time of the Second Republic after Munich, Seifert expressed himself freely as a publicist on various topics, poetry, theater or art. Part of his journalism at that time, which today is concentrated in the 12th (second part) and 13th volume of Jaroslav Seifert's Works, included cultural and political polemics. At first he led them mainly against dogmatic communists, domestic and Soviet. Later also against the cultural and political right and the practices of Hitler's Germany, exceptionally also against liberals (Peroutka). The task of the thesis will be to evaluate this part of Seifert's work, which has remained neglected until now, in the context of Czech literature and culture of the 1930s and Seifert's work (satirical poems in the collection Zpíváno do rotačky, 1936, and other verses).
Short Stories Milan Jariš' (Oni přijdou) and E. F. Burian's (Osm odtamtud): Theirs Versions
Vlková, Kateřina ; Holý, Jiří (advisor) ; Špirit, Michael (referee)
This master's thesis focuses on two collections of short stories that have not been analyzed enough so far, which deal with the period of Nazi occupation and persecution. Both are based on the authors' own experiences: They Will Come (orig. Oni přijdou; first published in 1948) by Milan Jariš and Eight Stories from Over There (orig. Osm odtamtud; first published in 1954) by E. F. Burian. The main attention will be focused on the textual comparison of the different versions of these titles (for Jariš, new versions in 1949, 1953, 1956 and 1985; for Burian, new version in 1956). The theoretical starting points will be the studies of Oldřich Králík and Miroslav Červenka examining different variants and versions of specific literary works.
The Genesis of Ladislav Grosman's Novel Z pekla štěstí and its Interpretation
Janošík, Milan ; Holý, Jiří (advisor) ; Kosák, Michal (referee)
The thesis deals with five successively emerging versions of Ladislav Grosman's novel Lucky as Hell (Z pekla štěstí), which were created between 1979 and 1980: Border (Hranice), How I was smuggled into Hungary (Jak jsem byl propašován do Maďarska), the third untitled version, The smallest refugee in the world (Nejmenší uprchlík světa) and Lucky as Hell (Z pekla štěstí). Based on the professional literature of Oldřich Králík, Miroslav Červenka and Milan Jankovič dedicated to the study of versions and variants, this work will confront individual texts in terms of language and style, theme, gradual changes of selected characters, composition and scope of individual versions and narration. The goal will be the interpretation of this hitherto little-known novel in the context of a naive child narrator and Shoah-themed literature taking place in Slovakia. The subject of this work will also be the monitoring of the changes of the narrator and his premature coming of age on the basis of a violently terminated childhood. We will also focus on prominent motifs that pervade this work (e.g. fear, death, love, guilt) and we will also mention the elements of humor that are present in the novel.
Jewish Motifs in Petr Eidler's Detective Fiction
Svítilová, Lucie ; Holý, Jiří (advisor) ; Jareš, Michal (referee)
The diploma thesis focuses on selected detective prose by Peter Eidler with a Jewish theme: Na šábes se nevraždí (2015), Nahá s Davidovou hvězdou (2016) and Smrt konvertity (2018). These are his first three detective novels with Jewish motifs. The thesis follows the character of the narrator, a not very successful private detective with family problems, who is present in all these texts, the plot, and its resolution against the background of the detective prose tradition and its conventions. The thesis especially focuses on the motifs of Judaism and the Holocaust, which play a prominent role in all these books and are specific to Eidler's prose. At first all books are described to avoid confusion in the following analyses. Keywords detective novels, Petr Eidler, Petr Balajka Na šábes se nevraždí, Nahá s Davidovou hvězdou, Smrt konvertity
Rhymes in the Late Poetry of Oldřich Mikulášek
Dokoupil, Kryštof ; Holý, Jiří (advisor) ; Trávníček, Jiří (referee)
Rhymes in the Late Poetry of Oldřich Mikulášek Abstract The thesis consists of four main parts. The first one - or more precisely the Introduction - treats above all the effect of marked phonic repetition in poetry, and particularly solves the exceptionality of a rhyme. Then, the way that Mikulášek developed the rhyme is shown, namely for instance a rhyme bridge. Furthermore, the material for analysis is determined in function of the last six Mikulášek's collections of poems created since 1971. The method for description of whole examined material emphasises the final rhyme as well as the quantity of rhymes in a poem. The second part proves, based on the research, that the rhyme bridge constitutes an intentional component of Mikulášek's poems. Shortness and big number of rhymed verses are characteristic for the poems raised during this period. The third part - the core of the thesis - contains 15 interpretations of typical and atypical poems, chosen as a representative sample of Mikulášek's late work. The final part summarizes the approaches of other scholars to Mikulášek's work, especially to his late collections, and confronts them with the results of this thesis. Unlike many literary critics having studied Mikulášek's poetry, the thesis reveals - based on the interpretations of the poems presented - the...
Novels of Josef Škvorecký in translations by Paul Wilson
Junek, Václav ; Špirit, Michael (advisor) ; Holý, Jiří (referee)
(in English): The aim of this thesis is the comparison of three novels by Josef Škvorecký -Příběh inženýra lidských duší, Scherzo capriccioso and Tankový prapor - with their English translations by Paul Wilson and the description of the differences in their composition. In the case of the translation of Scherza capricciosa, Paul Wilson noticed that the novel contains two basic reading horizons - one aimed at readers from the Czech cultural context, the other at readers from the Angloamerican cultural context - and when translating he intervened in the narrative discourse of the novel so that the resulting tone adapted to an Angloamerican audience. With this approach of Wilson's in mind, we also examine two other translated novels. The work is intended to be a contribution to the investigation of the work of Josef Škvorecký as an author creating for two cultural contexts.

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.
