|Opis:||The Master thesis entitled Thematization of violence in selected Slovene short prose after the year 2000 entails theoretical and analytical part.
In the theoretical part we specified the definitions, types and forms of violence. Every form of violence is connected to events in the society, therefore we also stated the psychological explanations of violence and we tried to discover the causes of violence in different social, economic and political conditions. Violence can also be a construct of individual’s pathological state.
Analytical part follows next and it entails short analysis of short prose collections, which were printed between 2000 and 2005. In the first faze we examined all short prose collections and eliminated those, which were self-published. We focused only on those short prose collections, which stories described the occurrence of physical violence. These stood out, because the execution of the violence itself or because of the way the violence was described by the author. Some stories are happening in the past, therefore we had to study the conditions of that particular time and take them into consideration, in order to follow the story and its author.
In analytical part we covered several male and female authors of short prose, such as: Franček Bohanec, Stanko Janežič, Vinko Möderndorfer, Milenka Pungerčar, Vida Bošnjak Logar, Tone Partljič, Viktor Rožanc, Ivan Sivec, Marjetka Slavec, Franjo Frančič, Sebastijan Pregelj, Franček Rudolf, Aleš Čar, Jan Jerina, Marjan Kolar, Meta Malus, Iztok Geister, Dušan Merc, Milan Petek, Nejc Gazvoda, Polona Glavan, Marija Gorše, Manka Kremenšek Križman, Milan Kleč, Matjaž Brulc, Tomaž Janežič, Uroš Sadek, Vasilij Vasko Polič in Suzana Tratnik.
Many short stories portray everyday life and show a realistic and sometimes even an autobiographic foundation, however in some stories the narrative time dates far back into the past (time of the Spanish inquisition or time between the two world wars).
It is noticeable, that some of the selected male and female authors, which were entailed in the analytical part of the thesis, included in their short prose stories literary portrayals of violence more often than the others. The motive-theme spectrum is therefore very diverse, from spontaneous slaps and punches, to brutal descriptions, where several forms of violence intertwine in its portrayals.|
