AnotationThe presumed project focuses on one of the fundamental structural elements of a literary work, namely the construction of characters or (lyrical) subjects. Such a research plan is a wide-ranging platform that enables the members of the future research team to continuously build on their existing research work while actively participating in team research on this specific topic. The problematics of literary character and subject will be examined through analyzes and comparisons of selected literary works, but in various aspects (semantic, typological, compositional, stylistic, functional, ideological, intertextual or genre) and with overlaps into various disciplines and subdisciplines: narratology, thematology, literary history, onomastics, reception aesthetics or genology. It is the genre dimension of the researched topic that logically interconnects this project with previous SGS projects solved at the Department of Czech Literature and Literary Criticism at the Faculty of Arts (during 2017-2019).
