By the Paths Through the Text: Didactic Interpretation and Interpretive Tasks in Secondary School Literature Teaching
Vojtíšek, Ondřej ; Králíková, Andrea (advisor) ; Koten, Jiří (referee) ; Vojtěch, Daniel (referee)
Literary work as a landscape - interpretation of text as setting a path in it - a didactic interpretation as providing a map. This (largely familiar and well-established) metaphor is at the heart of the work entitled By the Paths Through the Text: Didactic Interpretation and Interpretive Tasks in Secondary School Literature Teaching. Even with the help of that image (but mainly underpinned by reception and semiotic literary theories), the text in its first chapters establishes and elaborates such a conception of interpretation (the formulation of meaning in relation to a particular reader) and its didactic attribute (its own potential to teach interpretation), which seems to be advantageous for thinking about interpretation- oriented teaching (and interpretation taking place in dialogue more generally) and about the possibilities to assess (especially with closed tasks) the degree of students' acquisition of the process of interpretation, in the last chapters. To this end, it puts the theoretical concept of 'interpretation skills' - the possibility of segmenting the act of the journey towards interpretation into potential steps that can be intelligibly named, taught and (relatively separately) tested - at the centre, and even attempts a tentative enumeration of these. This list, then, is not meant...
Ladislav Klíma. His Reception in Czech Culture
Klíma, Matěj ; Vojtěch, Daniel (advisor) ; Kosák, Michal (referee) ; Málek, Petr (referee)
The thesis deals with the reception of Ladislav Klíma's work and personality in Czech culture. It is divided into four sections. In the first one we focus on the reactions to his work during his lifetime. In addition to the reflection on the plays and published books, we also follow small magazine polemics and partially explain the biographical background of published books. In the second section we examine the changes in the perception of Klíma after his death in 1928 until 1948. We present reviews of posthumously published books, obituaries and key interpretations of Klíma's thought. We examine the relations of avant-garde artists to Klíma and the personalities who significantly influenced the fate of his work. The third part presents reflections on Klíma's work after the communist coup in 1948 until the revolution in 1989. We look at the efforts to eradicate the author's name from cultural consciousness, marxist interpretations of his thought, the prominent authors of Czech literature who were influenced by him, interpretations from the 1960s, and the reception of his work in the alternative culture in the 1970s and 1980s. In the final section, we examine the situation of Klíma's reception after 1989, disputes over the approach to publishing Klíma's texts, selected interpretations and...

New reality. Man's path to humanity and a better world thanks to teachers-wizards
Prchal, Jan ; Vojtěch, Daniel (advisor) ; Chlup, Radek (referee)
The comparatist work provides a comprehensive and broad view of a specific literary genre of the last decades, which is called "dialogue with teacher-wizards". A wizard is understood as a person with unusual, supernatural abilities who imparts knowledge of a certain kind to his or her apprentice with a specific goal in mind. A literary analysis of the genre (including an excursus into the history of dialogic forms) and an analysis of selected structural parts of the wizard's "myth" are made as a basis for comparison. Finally, a basic line of interpretation is outlined. The aim of the thesis is to lay the foundations for the study of this "new" genre in the Czech literary environment and to provide summary information on the C. Castaneda and V. Megre. Keywords: dialogical form, fantasy, wizard, apprentice, Carlos Castaneda, Vladimir Megre

"To be a tree where there is no hubbub": Poetics of Solitude in the Works of Ludmila Macešková
Boháčová, Kristýna ; Vojvodík, Josef (advisor) ; Vojtěch, Daniel (referee)
The thesis follows the line of solitude in the poetry of Jan Kameník (which is the pen name of Ludmila Macešková). It notices the impossibility of classifying him into the literary groups active from 40's to 60's. It also observes his dramatic way which was motivated by desire to find the expression for his spiritual experience. First, the thesis focuses on places which illustrate the phases during the way. Then it centres on the poetic language which moves to the boundaries of communicability. Last, it comes to the touch like specific revelation of name where all differences are overcame.
The Eternal Boyhood of Jiří Karásek ze Lvovic
Kolařík, Karel ; Vojtěch, Daniel (advisor) ; Lishaugen, Roar (referee) ; Merhaut, Luboš (referee)
The thesis attempts to describe the life and work of Jiří Karásek ze Lvovic through an analysis of his lifestyle, i.e. the way in which he organized, embellished and individualized his life. Karásek sought to shape his existence as an artwork, in accordance with the inspirational concepts of the contemporary and antecedent thinkers and artists (e.g. Oscar Wilde, Walter Pater and Maurice Maeterlinck). He accented its integrity and orientation towards beauty. In accord with his aesthetic vision (and his literary work) Karásek conditioned beauty with sadness and pain and attempted to emphasize melancholic beauty, unity in disunion. For that purpose he would accentuate particularly the disintegrative, critical elements, evoking the impression of unsuccessful, self-destructive endeavor to reach life's high ideal. This corresponded with his tragic concept of the artist immolating himself for his Art. I approach Karásek's lifestyle through the use of the terms youth and (eternal) boyhood, which Karásek himself employed as symbols of mournfully beautiful existence in his literary work. I define a youth - in accordance with the romantic and symbolist interpretation - as a person at odds with reality (contemporary truths, customs and rules), a solitary, unique being, trying to construct a new world - only...
