Jewishness as a question of personal identity and literary dispositions
Pavlík, Ondřej ; Topor, Michal (advisor) ; Wiendl, Jan (referee)
This thesis primarily explores the different ways of reflecting on Jewishness in Czech poetry published between 1923 and 1936. This is modelled on two interconnected levels. Firstly, the thesis documents the language of literary criticism at the time, especially in the thought-provoking reflections of Pavel Eisner. The prism of his and others' observations and propositions can be applied directly to poetic texts to evidence their second life and wider impact - their social echoes, auto/hetero-stereotypical reception, ethno-deterministic interpretations, and finally their inclusion in the lineage of "Jewish lyricism," which is not to be taken as a matter of course. This is verified against and expanded upon through interpretations of the collections of poems by Otokar Fischer (Hlasy), František Gottlieb (Cesta do Kanaán, Proměny, Bílý plamen), and Viktor Fischl (Jaro, Kniha nocí, Hebrejské melodie) - i.e., by those authors who made Jewishness an explicit theme of their lyrical expression (or part of their lyrical auto-stylization). This way, the thesis explores the ideas of the different spiritual dispositions of Jewish artists, attempting to answer how and in what relation to the original poetic production they were formulated. In other words, how the influence of the author's Jewishness on his...
Semantics of space in the late poetic work of Bohuslav Reynek
Teclová, Barbora ; Vojvodík, Josef (advisor) ; Wiendl, Jan (referee)
The bachelor's thesis deals with the poetics and construction of the microworld around the house in Petrkov in the late poetry of Bohuslav Reynek, specifically in his three last collections of poetry, Sníh na zápraží, Mráz v okně and Odlet vlaštovek. Firstly, the thesis outlines the background of the house no. 13 in Petrkov, both in terms of Reynek's personal history and the resulting connection with the house, and in terms of the political and social events that affected both the house and the poet. Furthermore, we focus on literary-scientific methods of reflecting on the poetics of places, in particular topoanalysis based on Gaston Bachelard's Poetics of Space, which the thesis links with findings on Petrkov. At the core of the thesis are analyses of the poems and the creation of a typology of motifs from which the rural microcosm is constructed. In the analysis, the thesis focuses on the constellation of inner space in relation to the outside world, which in Reynek's work of the 1950s takes the form of a hostile and anti-human space. KEY WORDS Petrkov, Bohuslav Reynek, poetics of space, microcosm, topoanalysis.
The theme of threat to human existence in poems at the turn of the 1940s and 1950s
Janečková, Karolína ; Wiendl, Jan (advisor) ; Vojvodík, Josef (referee)
The bachelor thesis presents and compares three poetic compositions that thematize the threat to human existence: Atlantis by Vladimír Vokolek, Znamení moci by Jan Zahradníček, and Symfonie XX. století by Miloš Dvořák. In addition to the formal and compositional level of the texts, the thematic and motivic level is analysed. Consideration is also given to those poetic devices that co-create the image of a vision of the world in which the certainty of human existence is questioned. In the conclusion there is a comparison of the texts, presenting their identical and different moments.
Poetry of Josef Hora in the late 1920s and in 1930s
Krátký, Aleš ; Wiendl, Jan (advisor) ; Vojvodík, Josef (referee)
The bachelor thesis focuses on the poetic work of Josef Hora (1891-1945), specifically on the poetry collections contained in the collection Kniha času a ticha edited by Antonín Matěj Píša, which define a specific poetic line within Hora's work called the poetics of time and silence. The thesis is divided into two parts, the first part works with contemporary critical texts which create the first concepts of poetics time and silence. The second interpretive part seeks to outline the basic principles of the poetic image, which are the same for all the collections identified. The interpretative part is divided into three segments. The first section of the interpretative part focuses on the four basic elements as the basic motifs of the poetic image. The second chapter focuses on the relationship of the lyric subject to the space of the poems and the third on the thematization of dream and art in perspective of the function it occupies within the poetics of time and silence. In addition to the literary historical texts devoted to Josef Hora, Zdeněk Neubauer's and Tomáš Škrdlant's Skrytá pravda země: Živly jako archetypy ekologického myšlení and the work of the philosopher Gaston Bachelard will also provide support for the interpretative section. KEYWORDS Josef Hora (1891-1945), poetics of time and...
Prose Works of Milada Součková (with Emphasis on Analysis of Amor a Psyché)
Martanová, Petra ; Wiendl, Jan (advisor) ; Vojvodík, Josef (referee)
This thesis deals with Milada Součková's novel Amor a Psyché, which was published as the author's second work in 1937. The focus is on the analysis of the internal relations of the work and the key elements of its construction. Attention is paid to the narrating subject and its intratextual transformations, including issues of unreliability and gender. Subsequently, the thesis examines self-reflexivity, focusing on the novel's anti-illusional elements. Another aspect examined is the characterisation of the characters and their progressive marionetisation. Spatio- temporal dimensions and key motifs as integral parts of the novel are also analysed.
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.
