Serbian Literature

Serbian literature refers to literature written in Serbian and/or in Serbia.
The history of Serbian literature begins with theological works from the 10th- and 11th centuries, developing in the 13th century by Saint Sava and his disciples. With the fall of Serbia and neighbouring countries in the 15th century, there is a gap in the literary history, it is briefly revived in the 18th century by writers in Vojvodina, then under Austro-Hungarian rule. Serbia gains independence following the Serbian Revolution (1804-1815) and Serbian literature has since prospered.

Kada je Nejtan to pomenuo, shvatio sam da je grad ostao potpuno isti. Malo toga se promenilo na površini, ali je sve ostalo onako kako je bilo pre mog odlaska. „Baš je lep grad, i prilično prisan“, rekao bi moj otac. Ranije nisam znao šta bi mu to značilo. Kako to da grad može da bude prisan? U stvari, shvatam da je sam grad upio dobrotu ljudi koji stanuju u njemu, tako da je i sam postao divan i topao. Sada je, doduše, potpuno obojen u sivo, sa ponekim šarenim bilbordom; modernizacija je i ovde ...more
