The big horse and other stories of modern Macedonia
Metadata[+] Show full item record
It was not until after the Second World War and the successful struggle of Tito's partisans and the forging of a new Yugoslavia that Macedonia realized in some measure her autonomy as a republic, federated within that new state. It was only then that she had her own university, that Macedonian became the teaching language of her schools, and that she achieved a variety of self-government. It is pride in these achievements that has shaped the consciousness of her people. This collection offers for the first time in English representative stories of 20 writers, all of whom are still living, and all of whom began their careers after 1945. They are the writers of at least two generations: Some were partisans, but some never knew war and are still in their twenties or thirties. Their stories range from rather traditional work in imitation of Russian or European masters to radical experiments in the anti-story.
