Cíle předmětu
This course focuses on a selection of canonical texts of the Western literary discourse and their rewritings, adaptations, appropriations or deconstructions from the postcolonial and feminist perspectives. The starting point for textual and cultural analysis will be the common postcolonial and feminist practice of exploring the gaps and silences in the master narratives with the intention of giving voice to the previously unheard. In four units of “coupled” canonized pretexts and their rewritings, we will compare and contrast these texts, discussing the narrative strategies and cultural shifts that surface in the rewritings. The readings will include Daniel Defoe’s Robinson Crusoe/ J. M. Coetzee’s Foe; Charles Dickens’ Great Expectations/ Peter Carey’s Jack Maggs; Charlotte Brontë’s Jane Eyre/ Jean Rhys’ Wide Sargasso Sea, Homer’s Odyssey and Margaret Attwood’s The Penelopiad. The primary texts will be complemented by secondary readings focused on postcolonial and feminist theories. Students will be expected to read the assigned texts, contribute to seminar discussions, prepare one oral presentation/ develop a theoretical keyword, write four one-page response papers and a final essay, incorporating key theoretical concepts and critical analyses into their work. At the end of the course, students should be able to critically examine the cultural and artistic shifts from canonical texts to their re-writings within the postcolonial and feminist spheres, and appreciate the intertextual contexts.
