This book may have occasional imperfections such as missing or blurred pages, poor pictures, errant marks, etc. that were either part of the original artifact, or were introduced by the scanning process.

It's not because I read it for school, I just didn't like it
Valentina Markasović
I can guess why this book has such a low rating - most of people who read and rated this had to read it for school, which automatically means lower rating. Add that and the fact that you need a dictionary for the archaisms, and there you have it.

To be honest, I wouldn't have picked it up if I hadn't had to read it for school. But once I gave it a chance, it wasn't so bad. It even got slightly better as I progressed. I actually understood most of the text - the dialect was close enough to the lan

Imao sam sreću da sam dobio izdanje HAZU-a s odličnim predgovorom i pripremom podloge Ive Frangeša koji na 50-tak stranica donosi sve aspekte stvaranja djela i samu raščlambu.
No djelo samo po sebi teško će ikoga oduševiti, iako Mažuranić ima osjećaj za ritam i ponekad pogodi s nekom slikom, ili referencom (Hektor i Ahilej), ipak tu fali podosta prvenstveno karakterizacije, nije da sam ja očekivao neko duboko psihološko profiliranje likova, ali ne možeš mi lika starca Duraka, koji je pokretač i o

I don’t know what has to happen to me to say that I like this book. Unbearable to read and digest.

Priča sa beznačajnom porukom.
Ima mnogo interesantnijih priča sa boljom i pametnijom poukom koje bi pristajale lektirama

I didn't really like it. I too had to read it for school, or otherwise I would not have read it, simply because I'm kinda reserved towards domestic historical books. I realize its literary and historical importance, but there are too many things that I don't like: the language is archaic, although still fairly comprehensible, the topic is not something I usually read, and the writer overemphasizes religion, which really bothers me. But that's just me. It may have to do with my taste, and my age, ...more

J'ai lu la version gratuite disponible à www.bibliotheque-russe-et-slave.com.

Ce poeme épique est le chef-d'oeuvre du mouvement illyrien. La poesie en langues slaves se traduisent fort mal en francais et en anglais. On lit cette version pour sa valeur comme document historique. C'est un manifeste effectivement pour le projet d'unir les peuples slavs dans un nouveau pays la Jugoslavie.

Cette oeuvre prend moins qu'une heure à lire. C'est du temps bien passés pour ceux qui veulent comprendre l'histoi

Mažuranić je majstor s riječima i snažnim porukama koje želi prenjeti čitatelju. Usprkos činjenici da su mi tema i jezik (arhaizmi) pomalo distantni, bila sam oduševljena načinom na koji je djelo napisano. Treba ga promatrati kao poruku koju želi poslati te kritiku koju želi uputiti društvu i koncentrirati se na predivne slike koje oslikava. Kada ga se sagleda iz kutka doba kada je napisano, ovo djelo ima svoju težinu i ljepotu - upravo ono što je trebalo ljudima koji su tada živjeli.

Knjiga zapravo i nije toliko loša kako bi se moglo zaključiti iz ukupne ocjene. Mažuranić pokazuje izvrsno vladanje jezikom, u potpunosti je prenio govor kraja u kojem se događa radnja, iako je čakavac. Ovo djelo je zamišljeno prvenstveno kao političko, s ciljem ocrnjiivanja Turaka i pomoći braći pod njihovom okupacijom, no to ne umanjuje njenu umjetničku vrijednost. Djelo je prepuno snažnih rečenica, ova mi je posebno ostala u pamćenju:"Oro gnijezdo vrh timora vije, jer slobode u ravnici nije"

Yes, it is difficult to read and understand the language (it should be modernized, but the text would lost a lot - probably today there is no person who could have managed to keep the essence of the translation of the text), but who takes the trouble, for sure he will like it.
Though rife with biblical motifs, the story is everlasting.

Of course that teenagers don't like to read when they have to read something so heavy in school.

Ivan Mažuranić was a Croatian poet, linguist and politician—probably the most important figure in Croatia's cultural life in the mid-19th century. Mažuranić was born into a well-to-do yeoman family in Novi Vinodolski in northern coastal Croatia. He became a man of many abilities: he spoke 9 languages and was well versed in astronomy and mathematics. His realistic assessment of strengths and weakne ...more
