Insightful analysis into the non-literary, personal life of the Yugoslavian Nobel Laureate for Literature (1961), Ivo Andric. Through an examination of Andric's early novel, Ex Ponto, and two short stories, Put Alije Derzeleze and Corkan i Svabica, the author reveals how Andric's prose vision of life and existence are a reflection of the artist's experiences as a youth. The first book on Andric in English.

Review:

What is of real value here and throughout this volume is Juricic's extensive careful translations of Andric's writings....contains two appendixes relating to Andric's diplomatic career and sixteen pages of pictures from his life. This book is not for the general reader, but it should be of interest to the more informed in the field.>>> (Slavic Review)

Andric scholarship in English is relatively sparse, and this addition is a welcome one...Juricic's documentation is impressive...useful, for its biographical information; and literary intuitions, to both undergraduate and graduate.>>>> (Choice)

The essays are well documented and rounded off by extensive notes and a bibliography....The text, and the notes and quotations using several languages, have been produced with commendable lucidity and accuracy....>>>> (New Zealand Slavonic Journal)
