    This article is dedicated to Vergílio Ferreira’s lyrical reflective novel Forever (Para Sempre, 1983) and presents the spatial analysis of the house. The novel’s protagonist Paulo returns to his childhood home. The house, which has been abandoned for years, provokes a need in him to review his life, which leads to a search for the meaning of human existence in general. Paulo, the self-diegetic narrator, is returning to the house of his childhood. It is the definitive return that begins the last phase of his life, the time remaining until his death. Wandering around the house, running down the corridors, up and down the stairs, entering each room, he finds a stopped time, rediscovers his past, and thinks about his future and his dreams. There are four symbols that represent the four main rooms, which work as the keys to interpretation.

    The text is a review study of Tomáš Koblížek’s book. After an introductory summary of the book, we discuss three main issues: 1) the simplistic conception of Edmund Husserl’s “phenomenology of speech”, 2) the insufficient analysis of basic concepts, especially language as “expression”, 3) the adoption and emphasis of the disjunctive conception of two ways of seeing speech — original and scientific — in the wake of H. Pos. We argue that it is the third issue in particular that undermines the final section of the book, which introduces the conceptual dimension of speech. In Koblížek’s conception, the theorization of ethics becomes possible only by returning to an “originary” consciousness of language and is incompatible with a scientific stance. We suggest that, in our view, the contradiction is not so strong and a merger of the two is — even in the spirit of the “Saussurean postulates” — possible.

    The paper examines the potential influence of Wilhelm Dilthey on the works and thought of the Peruvian writer and ethnologist José María Arguedas. In 1953 Arguedas opened his ethnological article “Mountains in the Process of Peruvian Culture” with a quote from Dilthey’s book of essays Experience and Poetry (1910). Despite the fact that the two authors are distant in space and time, their hermeneutic approach and, above all, their faith in art as the highest possible form of knowledge, brings their reflections together. Dilthey’s triad experience — expression — understanding, which forms the core of the chosen quote, expresses the essence of art and its value: beauty, honest judgment, an authentic descent into the depth of linguistic expression and cultural identity. The three concepts also summarize Arguedas’s lifelong efforts to use art to make the underestimated Quechua and mestizo cultures a legitimate part of modern Peru and art in general.

    The article discusses the transformation of the relationship of Czech literature to the French writer Jules Romains, the chief representative of Unanimism, during the 20th century. In the period before and just after WWI, the emerging generation of authors received him with almost boundless admiration. In the interwar period, he was ideologically aligned with Karel Čapek’s generation and was publicly presented in the Czech cultural environment as the leading representative of contemporary French writing. A turning point came in the autumn of 1938, when, as a proponent of the idea of pacifism, he defended the principles of the Munich Agreement. Romains, originally seen as a friend of the Czechs, became a symbol of the French betrayal. After 1948, Romains’s post-Munich positions were placed in the context of the premises of Unanimism, which, in the perspective of the Marxist approach to literature, appeared to be ideologically mistaken because it neglected the agency of class aspects in the dynamics of society. Romains thus fell into the periphery of interest and into near oblivion. Only one-third of his major novel cycle Men of Good Will remains tanslated into Czech.

    Since its official foundation in 1948 till the second half of 1950s, the DPRK literature comingled the domestic socialist (“proletarian”) and the Soviet models. Therefore, the stories of the new, required characters significantly recoded maternity, thematizing the extreme devotion to the country and the party-spirit. The result is the women’s presence out of the classic family space, their entering into the public spheres and the confirmation of their capacity in the extreme era of the Korean war (1950–1953) and the subsequent period of the building of industry and the collectivisation. However, the growing cult of personality of Kim Ilsŏng (1912–1994) and his family soon returned these characters to the lesser roles, in which they exist only in relationship with the highly mythologized Great Leader.

    Nálezy z archeologického výzkumu v Březnici (okr. Tábor) v letech 2005-2009 a 2019. Výzkum provedl O. Chvojka (Archeologický ústav FF JU v Českých Budějovicích). Data zahrnují údaje o keramice a dalších nálezech použitých k depoziční analýze sídlištních objektů mladší doby bronzové, zejména tzv. žlabů. Výsledky analýzy jsou publikovány v Chvojka et al. 2021. Popis databáze je obsažen v přiloženém PDF souboru. Podpořeno Grantovou agenturou ČR (18-10747S). Finds from the archaeological excavations in Březnice (Tábor district, South Bohemia, Czech Republic) in 2005-2009 and 2019. The fieldwork was directed by O. Chvojka (Institute of Archaeology, South Bohemian University in České Budějovice). Data concern the pottery fragments and other finds (daub, loom weights) used for the analysis of deposition processes in the Late Bronze Age settlement features. Based on this material, a model of house biography and the concept of closing rituals were formulated (see Chvojka et al. 2021). These models suggest an interpretation for the so-called trenches, specific sunken features filled with an unusually rich content of secondary-burnt pottery and other finds. Details of the database are given in the attached PDF file. Supported by the Czech Sceince Foundation (18-10747S). Chvojka, O. – Kuna, M. – Menšík, P. et al. 2021: Rituály ukončení a obnovy. Sídliště mladší doby bronzové v Březnici u Bechyně – Rituals of termination and renewal. The Late Bronze Age settlement in Březnice near Bechyně. České Budějovice – Praha – Plzeň.

    In October 2021 a new terrain project of the Czech-Uzbekistani Archaeological Expedition was launched focusing on the settlement development and past landscape use of the middle Surkhan Darya basin (southern Uzbekistan). To investigate the hypothetical economic territory of the walled settlement of Khaytabad Tepa, a flexible methodological framework based on the approaches of intensive surface survey common in the Mediterranean and Europe was developed. This article aims to introduce the project, its goals and methodology and focuses in more detail on one particular area investigated during the pilot season – the area of Bay Tepa IV. The emphasis is laid on the identified artefact distribution and the former morphology of the site, captured on historical satellite imagery. Special emphasis is laid on a small assemblage of three terracotta figurines discovered during the surface survey. The gathered evidence points to a great potential of both the research area and the employed methods. As for Bay Tepa IV, a new dating of the site is proposed, putting its foundation to the Early Iron Age.

    This article examines how Italian scholars of Modern Greek played the role of cultural and linguistic mediators of Greek writers during the first years of the dictatorship in Greece, 1967–1971, a period in which the country was under strict censorship. From the very beginning, the work of scholars of Modern Greek, along with the Italian press and the student movement, tended to endorse the antidictatorial struggle, acting as a channel of communication between Italian society and Greek writers.
