Jan Opolský the Poet
Martykánová, Aneta ; Merhaut, Luboš (advisor) ; Wiendl, Jan (referee)
The bachelor's thesis chronologically follows the changes and constants in Jan Opolský's almost forty-year poetry career. Its development went from decadent symbolism, when it depicted fleeting moods, dreamy landscapes, loneliness and the burden of life, to historical and legendary themes, irony and finally to melancholic anthems on the theme of the native Krkonoše landscape. The poems resemble static paintings, as if painted still lifes. He applies his knowledge of artistic materials and the ability of suggestive descriptions in them. He left a mark in literary history with his first collection, Svět smutných. Key words Jan Opolský, poems, Czech symbolism and decadence, stylization, Nová Paka

Cultural and historical works of Alois Jirásek
Pokorná, Gabriela ; Merhaut, Luboš (advisor) ; Vaněk, Václav (referee)
The purpose of this thesis is to present Alois Jirásek as an author of popular texts, both educative and tendentious, published in contemporary periodicals or reprinted in his collected works as the case may be; and thus adjust his conventional picture as a writer exclusively of fiction. Jirásek's writings on historical and cultural topics, having largely been on the margins of scholarly focus (as secondary literature appears to refer to them on very few occasions), shall be stratified and characterized here, as well as contrasted and compared with the works of other selected authors. The work attempts to reflect their merits educative and instructive, and - assembling all the fundamental information - aims to serve as the basis for further research and outline its possibilities. Key Words Alois Jirásek, Cultural histor, Cultural and historical works
Motifs, Images and (self)-Stylizations of Czech Decadent Symbolism
Fremrová, Anna ; Merhaut, Luboš (advisor) ; Vojvodík, Josef (referee)
This thesis is focused on the decadent form of Czech symbolist literature at the turn of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century. The main task is to present a complex catalogue of motifs and images used by Czech decadents in their works and also to analyse the main methods and strategies they used - in particular interstatuality, also connected with the decadent effort to capture the uniqueness of each passing moment, and synaesthesia. The thesis also focuses on the radical individualism of decadent authors and its connection with both the motifs used and the symbolist style in itself - in the form of self-stylization of the decadent authors who tend to identify with their own works and become (even in real life) their own literal subjects. Because of the prominent visual aspect of decadent literature, the thesis also takes into consideration contemporary art works and the relations between words and images.
The Comparison of Selected High School Textbooks of Czech Literature from the First Half of the 20th Century
Bendová, Klára ; Merhaut, Luboš (advisor) ; Vojtíšek, Ondřej (referee)
The topic of the presented thesis is a comparison of selected high school textbooks of Czech literature, which were created and used during the first half of the 20th century, in terms of sociopolitical changes (i.e. notably changes in education related to transformation of the system of government in 1918, 1938 and 1948) and changes in the discourse of Czech literary historiography (especially in view of the major literary-historical works of the period). The thesis aims to examine the extent to which the image of Czech literature presented in high school textbooks has changed with respect to the named factors and, on the contrary, to what extent continuity has been maintained within the concept of teaching literature. The thesis is therefore mainly focused on the choice of taught material, its structure, resp. interpretation in the analyzed textbooks. In the introductory (methodological) part of the thesis major literary-historical works, resp. theories of the given period (with regard to the changes of high school literary teaching in the first half of the 20th century) will be briefly introduced and selected thematically related works will be reflected. In the practical part of the thesis the comparison will be made on the basis of defined aspects.
Josef Bor's Proses
Ali, Sabina ; Holý, Jiří (advisor) ; Merhaut, Luboš (referee)
The bachelor thesis deals with the prose of Josef Bor, who wrote two literary works; The Abandoned Doll and The Terezin Requiem. In The Abandoned Doll he tried to write out his experiences from the Second World War. The Terezin Requiem then tells a story based on an authentic event, about how the Czech conductor Rafael Schächter prepared a performance of Giuseppe Verdi's Requiem in the Terezin ghetto. The aim of this thesis is to analyze both of these prose. The work does not neglect the wider context of the creation of the works, because in order to understand them, it is necessary to approach the life in the Terezin Ghetto, especially the cultural one, which is essential especially for the Terezin Requiem. Key words: Requiem, Josef Bor, Terezin, holocaust, prose, Jews, Abandoned doll, The Terezin Requiem
