Vladimír Holan's metaphor in the collections Vanutí and Na postupu in the light of Ricœur's "live" metaphor
Koryntová, Lucie ; Vojvodík, Josef (advisor) ; Wiendl, Jan (referee) ; Langerová, Marie (referee)
The collections Vanutí (1932) and Na postupu (poems written in 1943-1948, published in 1964) are both of particular importance within the development of the poetry written by Vladimír Holan (1905-1980). The collection Vanutí, full of strongly bound, hermetic verses put together into intimate, lyrical compositions is a direct counterpoint to the collection Na postupu, written in free verse and accompanied by clearer expression of epic nature, orientated towards historical and everyday topics of the society. With respect to the relation between poetry and reality and as far as the way of creating meaning goes, the key notion is the metaphor. However, theoretical foundations of classical metaphor are unsatisfactory in this case - they cannot describe the originality of Holan's poetry sufficiently. By applying the theory of "live" metaphor, formulated by Paul Ricœur in his essays La Métaphore vive (1975) and Interpretation theory: discourse and the surplus of meaning (1976), we can achieve the most detailed description of typical metaphors in both collections. Thanks to Ricœur's pattern X is/is not Y, which expresses ambivalent predication present in live metaphor schematically, a peculiar dynamics of emerging sense (typical for each collection) is established. Metaphors that can be found in the...

Enchantment of Words. The Limits of Religious Language In Poetry
Krásenská, Klára ; Krásová, Eva (advisor) ; Wiendl, Jan (referee)
The bachelor's thesis main subject is the phenomenon of empty language, especially regarding the religious discourse. Why is it possible that our language activity may seem empty, insufficient, even dead? The religious field/part of human experience appears to be particularly liable to this phenomenon. Can religious language be "not enough" for the individual transcendental experience? What is so specific about religious language demanding truth? Similar questions are also asked by poets regarding to language as such, therefore we follow both this dual line of thinking and the involvement of religious language in the language of poetry. The analogy with the poetic language appears fruitful in several aspects, which leads us to the final question: Is it language of poetry that could eventually offer a functional solution?
Words, that shine. On the problem of synesthesia in Karel Teige's manifestos
Harcuba, Tomáš ; Vojvodík, Josef (advisor) ; Wiendl, Jan (referee)
This paper examines the role of synaesthesia in Karel Teige's manifestos from the 1920s. The first part is devoted to the theoretical grasp of synaesthesia as a metaphor, in contrast to the notion of synaesthesia in the psychological sense. First, the concept of synaesthesia as used in psychology is briefly defined. Then the theory of conceptual metaphors is introduced. After describing the general functioning of metaphors, the theory is used to define synesthesia as a metaphor. The second part deals with the theoretical thinking of Karl Teige in the 1920s. Using selected texts, the chronological approach attempts to outline the development of Teige's theoretical thinking from the first texts around the founding of Devětsil in 1920 to the 1928 Manifesto of Poetism. In the analysis of Teige's texts, synaesthesia is considered from two view-potins. Firstly, as a theme, and secondly, as a linguistic figure frequently used by Teige. The relation of the two occurances is discussed as well. A certain amount of attention is also given to the theoretical and artistic texts of other authors to show the connection between Teigo's programme and the theoretical thinking of other members of Devětsil and their artistic production.

Šrámek (Krška): "Stříbrný vítr" on a Silver Screen
Semler, David ; Mravcová, Marie (advisor) ; Wiendl, Jan (referee)
in English In my bachelor thesis I compare the novel Stříbrný vítr1 by Czech author Fráňa Šrámek with the movie adaptation made by Czech filmmaker Václav Krška. The most important aspects of Šrámek's novel are: disrupted composition, poetic language and the subject perspective of the main character Jan Ratkin. The composition is formed by the crucial points of the life of Ratkin during his growing up. Šrámek's poetic language is full of metaphors, metonymies and personifications. The most important stylistic feature of the text is its subjectivisation which is used to express the shifts of the mood of the main character. The main topic of the novel is the youth and how it is changed on its way to adulthood. The name of the novel "Stříbrný vítr" is a metaphor for the longing of the main character, who longs to revolt, to love and to know the world. The filmmaker Václav Krška altered both the story and the whole message of Šrámek's piece of art. Krška changed the time frame from thirteen years to one year, therefore the main story is no longer about Ratkin's growing up, but it depicts one year of his almost adult life. Another change was to focus on the love motive while neglecting other motives e.g. Ratkin's revolts and his effort to evolve both sexually and spiritually. The main story is therefore...

Vlajka the Magazine: its Methods, Means and Aims
Tomášek, Lukáš ; Heczková, Libuše (advisor) ; Wiendl, Jan (referee)
The bachelor thesis deals with the aims, methods and means of communication published in the magazine called Vlajka during 1928-1942 period. Mostly it focuses on the topic of Jewry and Communism (based on the sources and specialised literature study it presents the most striking Jew and Communist presentation models) - regarded as national enemies due to the Vlajka's "fight". The thesis also concerns Christianity, which is a form of defence from Jewry and Communism for Vlajka. Author's interest also lies in the belles-lettres texts' character and Vlajka's relations to art and chosen Czech literature personas. Eventually, the paper reflects ways of thinking on the woman (and woman social role) theme.
Czech sonnet in the first half of the 20th century
Hanus, Ondřej ; Wiendl, Jan (advisor) ; Holý, Jiří (referee)
Ondrej Hanus Czech Sonnet in the 1st Half of the 20th Century Abstract This thesis examines the history of Czech sonnets in 1885-1948. Based on a carefully selected material, it analyses the position of particular texts both in the work of individual writers (from Jaroslav Vrchlicky to Jan Zabrana) and in the defined period of Czech literary history. This period is divided into three phases (1885-1900, 1900-1930 a 1931-1948). Both formal aspects (metre, rhyme, strophic structure) and functional aspects (the various roles of the sonnet in the individual phases of Czech literary history) are taken into account. An important part of the thesis is the revision of the standard narrow formalistic definition of the sonnet. This is substituted with a much broader definition, allowing us to regard various formal experiments as fully-fledged sonnets.
