!The heavens are not humane..." Philosophical interpretation of Too Loud a Solitude
Kinter, Vojtěch ; Petříček, Miroslav (advisor) ; Thein, Karel (referee)
Too Loud a Solitude is one of the most famous texts of Bohumil Hrabal and possibly it is his most philosophical one. The following thesis interprets this text from the philosophical points of view as a statement about modern age and an individuals place in it. Based on one of the central sentences - "The heavens are not humane" - spoken by the protagonist Haňťa in his monologue in, the text is read as defense against incommensurability of the world with an indiviual. Christian a ancient Greek's way of defense are considered as not appliable to the age Haňťa lives at, but also as somehow present in his way of defense, which is described as a specific type of "pábení". "The end of Christian epoch" (as Hrabal himself puts it) which occurs in Too Loud a Solitude is described then in terms of mechanizing and forgetting of actual humane being. Existencial analysis of Haňťa's state after the end of epoch follows. The thesis mostly reffers to following thinkers: Friedrich Nietzsche, Karl Jaspers, Albert Camus and Jean Améry.
Theoretical reflection of the Old Czech amorous poetry
Kinter, Vojtěch ; Jaluška, Matouš (advisor) ; Škarpová, Marie (referee)
The goal of this thesis is to capture the progression of Czech literary medievistics since the Second World War and its relation to old Bohemian love poetry. Based on author's focus on philosophy he concentrates on the relation between Czech love poetry and its Western European counterparts and he studies how it was perceived by various researchers; by Václav Černý in particular. While a certain link of the uppermost medieval philosophical concepts to Occitan, French or German poetry is considered as a matter of fact the scientists are rather cautious in the case of old Bohemian poems. The findings will be brought forward in diachronic perspective. The preliminary conclusions of the changes in literary-scientific thinking about medieval Bohemian lyric will help to reveal possible blind spots in the previous research as well as to build a solid basis for future examination in this field. Finally, at the end of the thesis, contemporary theoretical methods for old Bohemian love poetry analysis will be presented.
