Body as Key Topic in the Prose of Marek Sindelka
Bydžovská, Marie ; Píšová, Ina (advisor) ; Brožová, Věra (referee)
The bachelor's thesis deals with the literary work of the Czech contemporary author Marek Šindelka, specifically with his key prose works Chyba, Zůstaňte s námi, Mapa Anny and Únava materiálu. The analysis of these titles, based mainly on the literary-theoretical approaches of Daniela Hodrová, Blanka Činátlová and linguists George Lakoff and Mark Johnson, focuses on the way in which their central theme of body and physicality manifests itself at various levels of literary work. The aim of the bachelor's thesis is to verify with the appropriate literary tools whether the body and physicality are only a key topic connecting most of Šindelka's texts or whether it enters the deeper levels of the text, eg. as its compositional principle or as - the only valid - way of seeing the world. KEYWORDS Marek Šindelka, contemporary Czech literature, prose, body and physicality, theme, composition, metaphor
Polish and Czech nonsense literature for children
Czudek, Lucja ; Brožová, Věra (advisor) ; Píšová, Ina (referee)
The diploma thesis describes Polish and Czech nonsense in children's literature. The main goal is to define nonsense literature, its development from a historical and formative point of view, considering contemporary events. The first part of the thesis focuses on the theoretical definition of the term nonsense and its historical aspect, especially on the two key representatives of English nonsense Edward Lear and Lewis Carroll. The next part deals with the development of Polish nonsense in children's literature. Two main authors, Julian Tuwim and Jan Brzechwa, who are considered as the creators of the new poetic school, took part in the formation of nonsense in Poland. Absurd humour and the world of children readers became the main inspirations for their work.

The diploma describes nonsense work for children of Josef Kainar, Jiří Kolář, Miloš Macourek, Pavel Šrut and other writers of literature. The last part of the thesis deals with specific nonsense literature for children of Polish and Czech authors....
A comparison of eroticism in post-revolution era of Vladimír Páral's prose with Fifti Shades of Grey
Buchtová, Michaela ; Mocná, Dagmar (advisor) ; Píšová, Ina (referee)
This thesis compares eroticism in the post-revolutionary work of the Czech prose writer Vladimír Páral with the bestseller Fifty Shades of Grey by the British writer E. L. James. From Páral's work, the works of Dekameron 2000 or Love in Prague, Playgirls, Book of pleasure, laughter and joy, and the Book about the whip are discussed. Also included is The Professional: Vladimír Páral about himself and other interesting things, which came out in the 1990s, but it is an autobiography. Therefore, this book will be included in the chapter on autobiographical connotations. The thesis is divided into three main parts. The first one is mainly terminological, it explains the terms sex, eroticsm, pornography, erotic and pornographic literature and love. The second part deals with the authors themselves and their body of work. It is organised into sub-chapters in which specific pieces are analysed. In the case of Páral, the parallel between the Book of pleasure, laughter and joy and Kundera's Book of laughter and forgetting is also taken into account. In the case of Fifty Shades of Grey, some similarities with the erotism in Milan Kundera's work are found. In the summary, the texts are compared in terms of the role of eroticism, sex tools, plot characters as well as author's intention and style. The subjective...
