Partisans in Yugoslavia: Literature, Film and Visual Culture
Miranda Jakisa, Nikica Gilic
transcript Verlag, Mar 31, 2015 - Literary Criticism - 382 pages
The ubiquitous Partisan narrative in Yugoslavia served well as founding myth of its newly united people. Its retrospective deconstruction has absorbed most of the academic attention for the Yugoslav Partisans since the break-up. This edition in contrast looks into the (hybrid) nature of partisanship itself as it appears in film, art, and literature. It explores the Partisans in Yugoslavia in Partisan novels, films, and songs, analyzes the - still ongoing - transformation process of the Partisan narrative, and reviews its transitions into popular (visual) culture.
