David Kozel


The text deals with the novel Doctor Faustus by Thomas Mann as a source of a musico-literary poetics and mythopoetics. The archetypical symbol of the shadow is interpreted and amplified through the literary character of Adrian Leverkühn and a broader imagination tendencies of art and society in the first half of the 20th century. For this goal have been used approaches of the deep hermeneutics and the analytical psychology. The motif of the Faust has strong potential to express not only an archetyp of the shadow, but its present is significant in the time of transformation and changes.
