The image of the Bohemian forest in Czech and German-written literature since 1945. Landscape lost and rediscovered homeland, the space of meeting and passing by of the nationes
Denková, Helena ; Vaněk, Václav (advisor) ; Holý, Jiří (referee)
The image of the Bohemian Forest in Czech as well as in German written literature is above all determined by the troubled geopolitical development of this region. Most of Czech texts about Šumava originated during the time of the communist regime, while German-writing authors concern themselves with this theme mainly only after the year 1989. The Bohemian Forest is usually considered an area on the Czech side of the border by the Czechs, German-writing authors, on the contrary, regard the Bohemian Forest, i.e. "Böhmerwald" as a region going beyond borders, belonging geographically, historically and culturally to the borderland of the three states. The Bohemian Forest represents landscape as well as civilisation in both Czech and German written texts. Literature reflects particularly on current topics such as, for example, nature preservation, vanished German villages, the rediscovery of the Bohemian Forest after the year 1989 and others. Authors writing in Czech as well as ones writing in German also deal with the problem of relationships between the Czech and the Germans.

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.

Josef Wenzig as a translator
Kropáčková, Tereza ; Pokorná, Magdaléna (advisor) ; Vaněk, Václav (referee)
(english): The thesis analyses a translation activity of Josef Wenzig (1807-1876), educator, translator, writer and librettist, who wrote primarily in German. During his life, Josef Wenzig translated numerous Czech poems from the first half of the 19th century. He was the translator of folk songs, poems of Kollár, Čelakovský, Štulc, Vocel, Jablonský, Erben and others. With his extensive work he tried to be a mediator between Czech and German culture. The thesis analyses individual compilations of translations, their presentation and reception, and primarily deals with the role of the translation between Czechs and Germans. The aspect of translator is also very important, because he grew up in the German family, but he took a positive stand on the Czech nation. The thesis aims to interpret Wenzig's texts (mainly forewords), which accompanied the translations, and their impact on the reception.

Echoes of national ideals in the Trilogies of Alois Jirásek and Henryk Sienkiewicz
Bruknerová, Tereza ; Hrbata, Zdeněk (advisor) ; Vaněk, Václav (referee)
(in English): Diploma thesis Echoes of National Ideals in the trilogies of Alois Jirásek and Henryk Sienkiewicz focuses on a comparative analysis of the historical prose of the two most popular writers of this literary genre. Their historical novels and political appearances played an important role during the Czech and Polish struggles for national independence since the last third of the 19th century. The thesis focuses on literary representation of specific historical events and personalities associated with the so-called golden age of national history (Sarmatism in the Polish case, Hussite in the Czech) - on range, manner and role of ideologization or mythization in Sienkiewicz's Trilogy (Fire and Sword, The Deluge, Fire in the Steppe) and in Jirásek's three-part epic Against All. To understand the national views of both authors, the theoretical concept of political myth is taken into consideration in the analysis of novels.
Karel Ladislav Kukla - observer
Turková, Barbora ; Vaněk, Václav (advisor) ; Merhaut, Luboš (referee)
The aim of this bachelor thesis is to introduce the personality and works of Karel Ladislav Kukla, an author who was sidelined, in today's literary context. The thesis presents Kukla primarily as a Prague author at the turn of the 20th century, who dealt with the fate of people affected by social poverty, in his own words called "the Prague mud", against a background of significant socio-cultural changes. In his works, Kukla managed to capture, with a great deal of authenticity, significant social and cultural phenomena taking place in Prague such as the renewal and cessation of existence of the original nightclub quarters; the post-war housing situation and the emergence and development of slum colonies. In individual chapters of the thesis, the author analyses the works of Karel Ladislav Kukla in the context of the aforementioned phenomena, which are set within a broader literary-cultural framework. Key words Karel Ladislav Kukla, Prague, the turn of the 19th century, czech literature, prostitution, margin of society, renewal, slums
