Abstrakt CZ: Studie představí základní témata alžbětinské poetiky se zaměřením na soudobou reflexi antického mimetického konceptu. Představí relevantní aspekty Shakespearovy básnické tvorby, na jejichž základě bude konstruován Shakespearův náhled na poetiku v diskusi se stěžejními alžbětinskými úvahami o básnické tvorbě, zejm. Philipa Sidneyho a Edmunda Spensera, reagujících na antické koncepty (zejm. Aristotelés, Horatius).
Abstrakt EN: The study deals with the fundamental topics of Elizabethan poetics, namely the Elizabethan considerations of the classical mimetic concept (particularly Aristotle and Horace). Shakespeare?s poetics will be clarified on the basis of the chosen aspects of his poetry (namely with the help of his Sonnets, Venus and Adonis, Lucrece and The Phoenix and the Turtle) and in comparison with Elizabethan discussions about poetics (especially Philip Sidney and Edmund Spenser). Unlike Sidney or Spenser, Shakespeare did not compose any theoretic work dealing with poetics; nevertheless one can explore his consideration of it with the help of his poetry. First of all it is obvious he does not surrender to classical aesthetic rules. On the other hand, Elizabethan poetics is not overly rigid and resists slavish imitations of classical examples. In this context we see Shakespeare not as solitary or anarchist, but as dramatist; a fine observer of the passions and interests of his time and not daring to experiment with established rules and themes to achieve success in his work. Moreover, he does not endorse pompous eloquence or quasi-knowledge.
