Kratochvílová, Jana ; Housková, Anna (advisor) ; Poláková, Dora (referee)
Title of the Thesis: Creation of protagonists in selected novels by Rómulo Gallegos Abstract: The goal of the thesis is a detailed analysis of the main characters of the novels Doňa Barbara and La Trepadora written by Rómulo Gallegos, one of the frontmen of "regionalism". Based on several expert essays, an original theoretical scheme of character analysis is formulated. It follows character indicators in the text, relationship to other compounds of the novels, typology determination, and reader's construct of the character in the story including the role of perception. The thesis also studies an analysis of acting forces and seeks common features of both novels, the prime one being the conflict of dual value systems. Key words: Rómulo Gallegos, regionalism, Doña Bárbara, La Trepadora, character theory
Argirópolis - aspects of essay and utopia
Šimková, Tereza ; Housková, Anna (advisor) ; Sánchez Fernández, Juan Antonio (referee)
The purpose of this work is an interpretation of the essay Argiropolis written by Argentine author Domingo Faustino Sarmiento. This work aims to determine the aspects of the essay and the utopia in Sarmiento΄s work; the interpretation, i. e. reading of the text in wider context, integrates Argiropolis into the contexts of the essay and the utopia in order for the present work to transcend the writing΄s historical ambit and portray the timelessness of Sarmiento΄s ideas. The first part of this work examines the essayistic genre, describes its genesis and sources in Europe and Latin America. This section accentuates the singularity of the Latin American essayistic tradition and presents the basic characterization of the form of essay. The analysis of essayistic aspects of Sarmiento΄s book is based on characteristic attributes of the essay. The second part of the work is focused on the utopia. In the context of the utopia, this work attempts to elucidate why Sarmiento preferred the genre of essay to the novelistic genre, while creating a book containing utopian aspects. The last part of the present work is focused on the peculiarity of the Latin American utopian thinking and includes the analysis of the aspects of the utopia in Argiropolis. Powered by TCPDF (
Magic realism and baroque literature
Urfus, Ondřej ; Housková, Anna (advisor) ; Sánchez Fernández, Juan Antonio (referee)
The thesis is focused on comparison of the Magic realism with the Baroque. Common characteristics were analyzed in following literary works: the baroque play by Pedro Calderón de la Barca (1600-1681) Life is a dream (La vida es sueo) and the novel The President (El Segor Presidente) by a Nobel Price-winning Guatemalan writer, representative of Magic realism, Miguel Ángel Asturias (1899-1974). The analysis was accomplished by using the transhistorical method which allows to interconnect two trends from different time periods and sociological aspects. Suffering, distress, insecurity and neverending armed conflicts characterise the Baroque period. Beginning of dictatorship, insecurity and persecution of indigenous population create a background of the magic realism in Latin America. In the formal expressions and content we can find following Baroque features in the Magic Realism: important contrasts (opposition of darkness and light, space and exuberance, barbarian manner and mercy), animalization of characters, theatralisation of Calderon`s theatre (théâtre dans le théâtre); syncretism, lots of metamorphs and allegory, oxymorons and important textual sonority. Asturias`s novel sometimes changes into a poetic prose and therefore it is approaching Calderon's literary expression. Additional irony in Asturias`s...
Historical topics in the posmodern Hispanic American drama. (Acto cultural by José Ignacio Cabrujas and La noche de Hernán Cortés by Vincente Leñero)
Skleničková, Jana ; Housková, Anna (advisor) ; Fousek, Michal (referee)
The aim of this thesis is to describe the mayor changes that the Hispanic American historical drama underwent in the last third of the 20th century, in connection with the increasing influence of the poetics of postmodernism. The work will mention the decisive artistic and philosophical concepts that had impact on the creation of postmodern historical dramas. The main part of the study is dedicated to the analysis of two examples of the postmodern representation of history and the historial myths: Acto cultural, by the Venezuelan playwright José Ignacio Cabrujas and La noche de Hernán Cortés by the Mexican writer Vicente Leero. The inicial chapters provide a theoretical base for the subsequent analitical part of the thesis. They outline the general features of drama and historical drama as a specific gender, and trace the postmodern changes over the Latin American culture, with a special focus on theatre production. Although the work is based on the textual analysis, we cannot avoid mentioning the distinctive features of the postmodern staging for its innovative significance. Acto cultural and La noche de Hernán Cortés represent two different ways of dealing with the famous historical heros: Cristopher Columbus and Hernán Cortés. They both offer quite an intimate, familiar picture, using some the postmodern...

Álvar Núñez Cabeza de Vaca: travel and change (Naufragios)
Marešová, Jaroslava ; Vydrová, Hedvika (advisor) ; Housková, Anna (referee)
The book known nowadays as Naufragios by Álvar Núez Cabeza de Vaca is one of the most important testimonies about the discovery and conquest of the New World. The first half of the 16th century saw many exploration and conquest travels in which thousands of sailors, explorers, conquerors and soldiers had to face the reality of the just discovered continent. It is really interesting to see how those who wrote about this event experienced it. Naufragios has always been read as a source of historical and anthropological information, but it has been also studied for the literature elements which we can find in it. In my thesis, I tried to look at the work in its complexity: see the literature influences in it and find those elements that we could call literature elements, but also I wanted to focus on the unusual experience of the author and look into the testimony of his experience with the American reality and see how this experience changed him. My thesis begins with a historical introduction which I consider very important to situate the work in its context. I tried to explain the events which led to the discovery of the New World and also the reaction of the Old World to the discovered one. After this general introduction my work continues with analysis of the first literature that treated the reality of...
Interaction between literature and film in Manuel Puig's novel
Lašťovková, Lucie ; Housková, Anna (advisor) ; Sánchez Fernández, Juan Antonio (referee)
In the thesis "Interaction between literature and film in Manuel Puig's novel" we attempted to present a brief research of a possible relation between literature and film in the novel "Boquitas pintadas". The objective of this work was to answer the question whether there is some kind of interaction or interrelation between these two artistic forms and how this interaction is being showed. In the first part of this work we tried to define relation between literature and film in general focusing on their diverse means of expression which can be used for representing the concrete features. In this connection we sketched the possible ways of expression and we tried to find out whether the literature and film differ intrinsically. In this part we also investigated the influence of the film on Manuel Puig's writing in general. We mentioned the literary critics and the author's opinions about whether this influence is present or not in Puig's novels, as far as the formal elements (the narrator, characters description, dialogue) as well as the thematic elements (sentimental motives, melodrama) are concerned. In the main part of this work we focused on Puig's novel "Boquitas pintadas" and the study of the artistic means of expression which had been presented in the previous part. We gave a brief characteristic of...

Buenos Aires in the Ernesto Sabato's novel Sobre héroes y tumbas (On heroes and tombs)
Netíková, Kristina ; Vydrová, Hedvika (advisor) ; Housková, Anna (referee)
This thesis gives an topology perspective on the Ernesto Sabato's novel Sobre héroes y tumbas (On heroes and tombs, 1961). It presents Buenos Aires in his singularity, as an staggered city on the shore of the Río de la Plata, with his inhabitants mostly of the immigrant origin, with atmosphere of nostalgia voiced by tango and cosmopolitan spirit of bars and cafés. The attention of the work is focused on spaces, mostly linked by other themes that develops its peculiarity and compile its complex character: e.g. monster and labyrinth, uterus - mother and home, conscious and unconscious of the city, port and south as the spaces of hope.... The epicentre of the story is house of the Olmos family- with the impressive windowed balcony "Mirador" and its occupier Alejandra, respresenting the lost Argentinean heroic "criollo" past. This past disappears as well as old Buenos Aires, imagined and loved by Sabato and Borges, his genuine bard and one of the Sabato's novel heroes . Sabato's conception of the city is explicitly negative - as the place of the evil and his realization. He adverts to desperation, isolation and imposibility of communication among the people of Buenos Aires, this New Babilonia, but in fact of every Babylonian citiy in the world. Offers an intercepiton of concomitant circumstanes of the spread of...
Space in Valle-Inclán's Sonatas
Mathé, Lukáš ; Fousek, Michal (advisor) ; Housková, Anna (referee)
V první kapitole naší práce jsme stručně přiblížili některé teoretické přístupy ke studiu poetiky prostoru v literárním díle. Cílem bylo na základě různých inspirací vytvořit metodu, která by vyhovovala zkoumání prostorové konfigurace čtyř Sonát Ramóna M. del Valle- Inclána. Vedoucí inspirací se stala studie polského teoretika Januzse Sławińskeho. V závislosti na ní jsme se rozhodli zaměřit nejdříve na styl a specifika popisu prostoru. Centrální částí našeho zkoumání se pak mělo stát podrobné studium struktury nejdůležitějších prostorů Pamětí markýze Bradomína, vedoucí k určení významotvornosti prostorové složky pro textový celek a k odhalení jejího vztahu k složkám dalším. V kapitole o popisu jsme shrnuli nejzávažnější rysy a specifika deskripce prostorů v Sonátách. Sledovali jsme metodu francouzského teoretika Philippa Hamona, srovnávajíce jeho závěry ze zkoumání popisu v realisticko-naturalistickém diskursu s podobou popisu v Sonátách. Jako nejvýznamnější charakteristiky deskripce v tomto díle jsme určili vysokou míru vypravěčovy subjektivity při popisu, dynamizující zdobnost podtémat jednotlivých prostorů a používání kulturních klišé, jež vede k aktivnímu zapojení čtenáře do literární komunikace. Popisující odkazuje na kulturně známé vzory takových prostorů, čtenář si má představit příkladný objekt...
