Cataloguing data:


A capital monographic synthesis of many decades of research work conducted by one of the most important scholars dealing with the Serbian literary avant-garde. By providing a description of the literary, political and cultural life of the era, the author aimed to come up with a synthesis of the literary period of the avant-garde, offer a new interpretation of a number of works and authors, and establish links, in terms of poetics, with the literature of the second half of the 20th century. Integral parts of the book are a detailed chronology of literary events in the above-mentioned period, and also a bibliography of secondary literature on the avant-garde, both in the South Slavic context and in foreign languages.
