Carpathia - An insight into the contemporary studies of the periphery
Křižková, Aneta ; Činátlová, Blanka (advisor) ; Hrdlička, Josef (referee)
The thesis deals with a selected literary works by contemporary authors of the Central European area, which are associated with the landscape of Transcarpathian Ukraine. The thesis primarily focuses on the issue of imagining space from the narrator's perspective and a conception of its own identity in a relation to a referenced space, topography, collective memory. The initial precondition for interpreting texts is the peripheral character of the region and its features, such as nostalgy, memories of a place that is no longer, a fascination for exotism etc. Using a literary-comparative approach, the following texts are disscussed: Maroš Krajňak's Carpathia, Ziemowit Szczerek's Přijde Mordor a sežere nás aneb Tajná historie Slovanů, and Jinací by Taras Prochasko. Concerning space visualisation and its narrative potential related to the narrator's identity, the theoretical basis of the work is experimentaly set in a postcolonial framework. As such, the thesis intends to capture the resonance of the material in another culture (ie in the Czech, Slovak and Polish environment). Key words Central European literature, cultural context, periphery, postcolonialism, identity, landscape, Transcarpathian Ukraine

Rushes of the Disaster. Comparison
Vaněk, Jakub ; Hrdlička, Josef (advisor) ; Wiendl, Jan (referee)
The thesis presents research on relationships in the context of the unfinalized lyric project Potopa (The Flood) of František Halas. Main points of analysis are questions of fragment, catastrophe and of (lyric) speaker or witness in the sense of specific speech formed by the traumatic event. A reading of the poems belonging to The Flood (as well as the question of the borders of the text and questions of the whole and possible shape of the piece in general) is founded mainly in the context of Christianity, thematic and compositional connections and with regard to the historical event. I'm not so concerned with the national accents of the works of Halas at that time (his engagement in the Czech resistance was interrupted after the arrest of Vladislav Vančura and others by Gestapo - for Halas it's also the time of the most intensive work on Potopa). The aim is rather to see The Flood as a poem witnessing the horror and the catastrophe of the second world war in general. After the opening analysis of characteristic traits of The Flood follows comparisons with selected works of czech literature, primarily with Znamení moci (The Sign of Power) of Jan Zahradníček, Básně z koncentračního tábora (Poems from the concentration camp) of Josef Čapek and Čas (Apokalypsa mixte) (Time) of Jiří Kolář. In concrete...
On Speech in the Poetry of Karel Šiktanc
Vinš, Ondřej ; Vojvodík, Josef (advisor) ; Hrdlička, Josef (referee)
On Speech in the Poetry of Karel Šiktanc The diploma thesis focuses on the poetry of Karel Šiktanc from the 1970 s to the present. It aims to identify and describe those invariables that could characterize his poetic work. In order to accomplish that, two main theoretical sources are used. First, Martin Heidegger's essay Básnicky bydlí člověk, and second, a cognitive ethnolinguistics approach. The overall goal of the thesis is to demonstrate how language (or, more precisely speech) might be conceptualized (cf. the metaphor of speech as space) and what function does speech have in the magical thinking. Using Eugène Minkowski's term zvučení, a noticeable contrast between the sound of speech and silence in Šiktanc's imagery is commented on. Due to the vastness of data, the analysis concentrates on selected poems that are somehow emblematic of each collection.
David Mitchell's World of Novels
Šplíchal, Martin ; Hrdlička, Josef (advisor) ; Bílek, Petr (referee)
The diploma thesis deals with seven novels by the contemporary British novelist David Mitchell. Using textual analysis, it traces the ways in which the novels are connected, most visibly expressed through reappering characters and realities, and provides an overview of Mitchell's biblioverse. The work also notes the differences between the fictional and the real, which Mitchell's novels examine, and leads to a broader reflection on the meaning of storytelling or the meaning of a cultural encyclopedia.
Autobiography in the Context of the Positioning Theory
Soukupová, Klára ; Kubíček, Tomáš (advisor) ; Hrdlička, Josef (referee) ; Zizler, Jiří (referee)
Mgr. Klára Soukupová Autobiography in the Context of the Positioning Theory Abstract This doctoral thesis is a theoretical and an interpretative study that deals with the genre of autobiography, its position in the contemporary literary theory and problems related to an interpretation of autobiographical texts. Autobiography as a genre of non-fictional literature refers to real characters and events, but at the same time it is a literary work of art, a verbal construct in which the representation of reality is subject to the intentions of the author and to the rules of construction, that are close to the compositional techniques of fictional texts. The first part of the thesis concentrates on the theory of autobiography and its interdisciplinary context. It summarizes the development of theory of autobiography from the late 19th century to the present. Also, the concepts of the memory studies (especially the concept of collective memory) and the problem of distinguishing fiction and non-fiction (discussed in philosophy of history in 1970s and 1980s, fictional worlds theory, pragmatics of fiction, etc.) are taken into account. The theoretical chapter critically reflects P. Lejeune's definition of autobiography, based on the concept of the autobiographical pact. In relation with the problem of how to define...
Visuality in the Prosaic Work of Richard Weiner
Jončevová, Veronika ; Vojvodík, Josef (advisor) ; Hrdlička, Josef (referee)
The BA thesis focuses on the possibilities of reading of the selected prose of Richard Weiner throgh its visual potential. Theoretically is based on the context of the first 20 years of 20th century (especially new established art movemets such as surrealism, expresionism and cubism). The first part discusses the term avant- garde and brief introduction of related concepts, introduction of the author and his work. The second part then interprets several selected texts from the books of short stories Prázdná židle a jiné prózy, Solný sloup and Škleb. This chapter is used to discuss the influence of the image on writer's prose and the way that the aspects of visual art can be applied in the process of reading. 1
"Closed to the sun, open them selves to the glorious silence of the stars": An Attempt to Analysis of a Withdrawnnes-motif; topics generated by it and their consequences in the literature and "literatures" at the turn of the century
Dostál, Mojmír ; Hrdlička, Josef (advisor) ; Vojvodík, Josef (referee)
The main aspiration of this thesis is to illustrate on several selected examples (or almost "cases" of clinical kind) from French, Russian, Polish, Italian (and in the second plan also German or English) writtings of the 19th and early 20th century the methods of application and presentation of the Withdrawnnes-motif in literature. And on the basis of them (after attempting to mapping out the network of their possible mutual influences, consequences, concurrency or filiations, in the interpretative part of the thesis, so on the II. to VI. chapter) try to define its final characteristics, periodisation, classification and his general definition. … and, moreover, or on the way to this purpose, perhaps to provide the reader a few other - perhaps more useful, or more interesting - information. Keywords: Autostylisation, Confusion of the dream and the reality, Decadence, Dreaming, Extreme mental states of mind, fin de siècle, Individualism, Literary motives, Modernism, Psychologism, Psychic naturalism, Solipsism, Transposition of identity, Withdrawnnes
"Wireless Imagination": poetic manifestos of F. T. Marinetti and their poetistic realizations
Divíšková, Radka ; Vojvodík, Josef (advisor) ; Hrdlička, Josef (referee)
(in English): The work will deal with the influence of Marinetti's poetological manifestos on Czech poetism. In the first instance it will outline the background and poetics of Marinetti's poetological manifestos, especially the Words In Freedom. Another outlet will be the contactological part, mapping the activities of Marinetti in Prague and the main nodes of mutual contact between the futurism and Czech environment, especially Devětsil. The aim of the work is to show the similarity of the form and characteristic features connecting Italian futurism with Czech poetism on the top works of Czech poetism - it will be a work On the Waves of TSF of J. Seifert, The Golden Chains of K. Biebl and The Parrot on Motorcycle of V. Nezval.
A film adaptation of a surreal literary work (Vítězslav Nezval: Valerie and Her Week of Wonders)
Vykydalová, Anita ; Činátlová, Blanka (advisor) ; Hrdlička, Josef (referee)
The aim of this thesis is to explore the possibilities and limitations of movie adaptation of surrealist text. The approach used leverages on the analysis and comparison of the Vítězslav Nezval's prose Valery and Her Week of Wonders with its film adaptation of same name by Jaromil Jireš as well as the analysis of Vratislav Effenberger's scenic texts, also referred to as pseudo-scenarios. Based on the aforementioned process the factors that influence the degree in which the specific text can be turned into a film are set and described as well as a more general view on the possibilities and limitations of surrealist text film adaptations is synthesised and discussed. Key words: Vítězslav Nezval, Vratislav Effenberger, Jaromil Jireš, film adaptation, surrealism
