Zásady pro vypracování
On the basis of postmodern literary theories (Hutcheon, Butler, Levinas) and with a special emphasis on the Jewish dimension of the characters (Mamet, Roth – Reading Myself and Others), the thesis will analyse how some of Roth’s protagonists inherit, escape from, or construct their identities, from or in reaction to Jewish stereotypes. While the introduction is going to lay down the theoretical groundwork of the problem of identity in postmodern literature and culture,the individual chapters will be devoted to the detailed discussion of the different aspects of and textual strategies involved in the depiction of the chosen characters, the concluding passages will try to compare and/or contrast Philip Roth's approach to the given issues in the selected novels (Portnoy's Complaint, American Pastoral and The Human Stain).
