About this Item

#3843 - "Bosnian Story: Translated By Kenneth Johnston" by Ivo Andriac. VG 9x6 dark red cloth, some wear on corners and bottom of spine. A cliping with the date 10/07/92 handwritten at the bottom is a map showing a section of Europe entitled "Breakup in the Balkans".A fascinating tale of Travnik, the capital of the Turkish province of Bosnia in the early 19th century. This historical novel has four main themes: First, an historical and political theme of Bosnia as a battleground of intrigue between Napoleonic France and Imperial Austria; second, that of a gradually disintegrating effect of the East on western Europeans who have to live there; third, the study of an honest, unimaginative man who serves a dictatorship in which he at first believes but whose aims and methods he comes with growing horror to doubt; and fourth, the theme of Bosnia itself, its people, the spirit of the land, and the problem of their rescue from ignorance, backwardness, and poverty. (Information from the Preface). Andric won the Nobel Prize in 1961. Bookseller Inventory # 003843
