Ivo Andric

Andrić, Ivo

 

Born Oct. 10, 1892, in Travnik, Bosnia. Serbian writer. Born into a family of artisans.

For participating in the national liberation movement, Andrič was arrested by the Austro-Hungarian authorities and interned in 1914. He had already begun to publish in 1911. In continuing the realistic traditions of Serbian literature in his novellas of the I920’s and 1930’s, Andrić depicted man’s inner world, which is subjected to national and social contradictions. The best novels of Andrić are Bridge on the Drina (1945) and Bosnian Chronicle (1945), both devoted to the history of Bosnia. Andrić’s works are profoundly philosophical and also possess psychological depth. He is the author of literary criticism on P. Njegoŝ, V. Karadzic, the artist F. Goya, and others. Andrić won a Nobel Prize in 1961.
