Comments

IVAN GUNDULIĆ
Ivan Gundulić was born in Dubrovnik in 1589. He performed various administrative and judicial duties in the Republic of Dubrovnik, and was Prince of Konavle. He was already considered a classic of Croatian literature in his own lifetime. In his most important work, the 20-canto knight-heroic epic "Osman", Gundulić described the violent rise to power of Sultan Osman II, the defeat of the Turkish army in 1621 at the Battle of Khotyn in Poland, the Janissaries uprising and the murder of Osman in Constantinople. The original manuscript is not preserved. The oldest known copy is by Nikola Ohmučević, dating from 1654 and is missing cantos 14 and 15. "Osman" is one of the few works of older Croatian literature to have been translated into Latin, Italian, Polish and Czech. Gundulić is also the author of a religious poem in three "laments", "Tears of the Prodigal Son" from 1622, a masterpiece of 17th century Croatian literature. His most famous play, a traditional pastoral titled "Dubravka", was first performed in 1628, and was imbued with additional political themes and meanings, primarily with the utopian Renaissance and Post-Renaissance concepts of the ideal state.
