Ancient Greeks in Gaul
Patočka, Petr ; Kalfiřtová, Eva (advisor) ; Listíková, Renáta (referee)
The objective of the thesis is to briefly map the history of the French territory during the periods of relations with ancient Greece. Most of this work is dedicated to the South and South-East of France (in French known as the Midi), as the Mediterranean coastline of today's France was the main area to be colonized by the ancient Greeks. The first chapter introduces the prehistoric inhabitants of France before making contact with ancient Greece. The thesis focuses on the period which begins with the Grecian colonisation of southern Gaul and ends with its conquest by ancient Rome. Later development of the Midi is outlined in the final chapter. The topic of the history of France in antiquity was subject to many studies in the twentieth century, however, most of them have been forgotten. Therefore, I would like to "revive" some of these studies in my thesis. Keywords - France, antiquity, ancient Greece, Phocaea, Massalia
Women's emancipation in Dangerous Liaisons by Pierre Choderlos de Laclos
Rumpíková, Michaela ; Fučíková, Milena (advisor) ; Listíková, Renáta (referee)
The aim of this bachelor thesis is to scrutinize, through a detailed literary and sociological analysis, the theme of women's emancipation featuring in the epistolary novel, Dangerous Liaisons, by Pierre Choderlos de Laclos. This work will principally concentrate on the question of female identity of the three characters, Cecile, Tourvel and Merteuil, in the context of the Enlightenment. We will examine the text by taking into consideration two contrasting approaches, traditional and contemporary, in order to demonstrate the ambiguity of the interpretation. We will attempt to characterize the female protagonists and consequently categorize them on the bases of contextual typology of characters. Simultaneously on the poetic and narrative level, we will attempt to exemplify their emancipatory attempts examining the heroines in connection with their female identity and philosophical conception of the Enlightenment about humanity. Having analysed their portrayals, it will be observed how the novel offers an eventual feminist reading while referring to the possibility of women's emancipation. Ultimately, we will reach the conclusion that Laclos has created a quasi- complete spectrum of female characters interpreted as representing the topos of heroine fatale and through a more contemporary reading, they...
Translation and study of Crépuscules by Joël Casséus
Štencová, Linda ; Fučíková, Milena (advisor) ; Listíková, Renáta (referee)
This diploma thesis on Commented Translation of Joël Casséus' Crépuscules consists of translation of the first three chapters of the Quebec novel Crépuscules into the Czech language and subsequent expert commentary. This commentary focuses on the analysis of the novel genre that balances science fiction and modern myth, as well as the Christiane Nord analysis of the original text through which it explores external factors such as author, reader, intention, text function or its motive and intra-text factors such as theme and content, composition, nonverbal components, lexicon, syntax, and suprasegmental phenomena. Subsequently, in the commentary, we deal with translation problems, their solutions and applied translation procedures such as transposition, modification, compensation, generalization or specification.
