Not sure if you're still wondering, but it may help someone else nonetheless:

Chronologically, ie. in their time of settings, the books are in a certain order. But stories don't seem to be related. Even their locations are all over Bosna; 3 different cities. I've only read Na Drini Cuprija so far, and was thinking to dive into this one, so you can say I'm following that order, and though this was unintentional, I'm happy that I am. Then again, I don't think you'd be lost if you didn't.(less)

Savršeno depresivno! Savršeno pisano! Budem iznova šokiran kojom je lakoćom opisivao i pisao Andrić. Sada mi je tematski malo bliža nego kada sam je čitao prvi puta, ali opet je to daleko. Čekam poznije godine da ga upoznam u potpunosti, jer tako se čita Andrić. Barem tri puta u životu.

Tão bom que tem que se ler devagar para durar mais. Uma escrita clássica ao nível dos realistas do século XIX.
Passa-se na Bósnia Otomana, no período das guerras Napoleónicas, onde dois embaixadores, francês e austríaco, lutam contra tudo e entre eles para defender os interesses dos seus impérios mas acabam por se tornar mais próximos pela partilha das adversidades e da cultura europeia comum, num meio hostil onde tudo é diferente do que os une.
Ivo Andrič também foi embaixador e durante a segunda

I think that better translation of the title would be Travnik Chronicle. That is the title in the original language anyway. I assume that the translator thought that Bosnian Chronicle sounds more familiar to the average reader then Travnik chronicle. He was probably eight, as Travnik, although beautiful, is not that well known city. However, the book is set in Travnik. The characters all, either permanently or not, live in Travnik or immediate vicinity. On the other hand, perhaps it could be sai ...more

Residenza del visir ottomano, Travnik, la città natale di Ivo Andrić, fu sede per pochi anni dei consolati francese e austriaco, una delle tante “novità” volute dal sultano riformatore Selim III, affascinato dalla Francia e dal suo “genio” Napoleone. La chiusa, inaccessibile, montagnosa, fredda, ostile Bosnia musulmana, si trova in tal modo a contatto forzato con l’Occidente nelle persone del console francese Daville e di quello austriaco von Mitterer, delle loro famiglie ed entourage.

Izdanje koje citam ima 400 stranica.

[1-100]: Čekam da se pripovijedanje razmaše, povremeno vrlo lijepo, a češće se doima kao odrađivanje. S obzirom na ostala Andrićeva djela zasad nisko na ljestvici. Možda je prednost što je karakterizacija likova realističnija (manje je ekstremnih ličnosti nego inače), ali je stoga možda malo i dosadno... Puno je obične životne mudrosti za obični svakodnevni život (npr. primjenjivo i danas, stav prema poslu i radu, stres na poslu, zanosi nekakvim ideologijama i

Shelves: literature
I read this novel after reading Andrić's The Bridge on the Drina, both of which had been recommended by a Bosnian friend. While The Bridge on the Drina is epic, covering four centuries of history, Bosnian Chronicle covers only four years in the early nineteenth century. Both, however, are limited in geographical scope and the chronicle may be profitably read after The Bridge as if it were another, much longer tale of the many short ones presented therein.

Volim Andrićev stil, milo mi je čitati ga :)
Radnja "Travničke hronike" mi je nekako spora (verovatno sam zbog toga i sporo čitala :D), što je i za očekivati - mislim da je pisac čitaocu želeo da dočara učmalost ove zabačene varoši i njenih meštana.
Ipak, ne mogu reći da mi se knjiga ne dopada...naprotiv :) 4*

This is a curious entry in the list of works by Ivo Andric, the Yugoslav novelist. Although set in Travnik, Andric's native town in what is now Bosnia, it is a novel in which Bosnians almost do not appear. The time frame is between 1807 and 1814, and the subject is the effect of the Napoleonic struggle on a minor Ottoman province that the French regime and the Austrian monarchy deem strategic enough for a few years and consequently establish consulates. So "The Bosnian Chronicle" is principally ...more

"Нико не зна шта значи родити се и живети на ивици између два света, познавати и разумевати један и други, а не моћи учинити ништа да се они објасне међу собом и зближе, волети и мрзети и један и други, колебати се и поводити целога века, бити код два завичаја без иједног, бити свуда код куће и остати заувек странац; укратко: живети разапет, али као жртва и мучитељ у исто време "

Leaving aside the internet discoverability-unfriendly fact that this book has been released under three different titles since its first appearance in 1945, this is an utterly majestic snapshot of Balkan history that provides a key to understanding the region - and Bosnia in particular - like only a local, Nobel Prize winning author can.

Andrić's touch is masterful. The action covers just 8 short years with the action in the small town of Travnik playing out against the distant echo of the Napole

The Bosnian author Ivo Andrić, winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature, set the first of his trio of Bosnian novels in his home town of Travnik when it was under Turkish occupation at the time of the Napoleonic Wars. The main protagonist is the French consul, but there is a kaleidoscope of other characters, Moslem, Orthodox, Catholic, Jewish - Turks, Slavs, Austrians, French - male and female, young and old, drunk and sober. The author sees deep into their hearts and their failings. This was a ...more

I still like The Bridge on the Drina more.

It contains all the elements that make The Bridge on the Drina a great read. With some additions: the Western perspective of the Orient and the historical relationship of the Great Powers at the time. However, I don't think it's good to read the two books back-to-back, drawing comparisons is inevitable.

To be fair, the book shines a light on its own, but if you only have time for one book by Ivo Andrić, I would recommend the other one.

Andrić, pravi vladar priče. Pripovijedanje je savršeno izvedeno, nevjerojatan smisao za detalj, nikad bez određene namjere. Andrić poznaje ljude i krajeve u dubinu, njihove najveće ideale i najdublje strahove.

Honestly, the first two installments of Ivo Andric's Bosnian Trilogy are among my top 10 favorite reads. They're so darned good! Long, but good.

Andric sets Bosnian Chronicle in his home town of Travnik in northern Bosnia during the time of Napoleon. The main characters are Consuls from France and Austria, and Turkish Viziers. Other than the prologue and epilogue, Andric tells the story from the points-of-view of the representatives of western European powers. Through the eyes of these temporary

“Obojica su se slagali da je zivot u Bosni neobicno tezak i narod svih vera bedan i zaostao u svakom pogledu. Trazeci razloge i objasnjenja tome stanju, fratar je sve svodio na tursku vladavinu i tvrdio da nikakvog boljitka ne moze da bude dok se ove zemlje ne oslobode turske sile i dok tursku vlast ne zameni hriscanska. Defose nije hteo da se zadovolji tim tumacenjem, nego je trazio razloge i u hriscanima samima. Turska vladavina stvorila je, tvrdio je on, kod svojih hriscanskih podanika izvesne karakteristicne osobine, kao pritvorstvo, upornost, nepoverenje, lenost misli i strah od svake novine i svakog rada i pokreta. Te osobine, nastale u stolecima nejednake borbe i stalne odbrane, presle su u prirodu ovdasnjeg coveka i postale trajne crte njegovog karaktera. Nastale od nuzde i pod pritiskom, one su danas, i bice i ubuduce, velika prepreka napretku, rdjavo nasledje teske proslosti i krupne mane koje bi trebalo iskoreniti.” 2 likes
