    About "Jovan Dučić"

    1. Jovan Dučić

      The exact date of Du i s date of birth is still undetermined it is variously said to have been on 17 February or 5 February according to the Julian calendar of 1871, 1872, or 1874, with the latter date most often given He died on 7 April 1943 at age 72.He was born in Trebinje in today s Bosnia Herzegovina, where he attended primary school He moved on to a high school in Mostar and trained to become a teacher in Sombor He worked as a teacher in several towns before returning to Mostar, where he founded with Aleksa anti a literary magazine Zora Dawn.Du i s openly expressed Serbian patriotism caused difficulties with the authorities at that time Bosnia Herzegovina was de facto incorporated into the Austro Hungarian Empire and he moved abroad to pursue higher studies, mostly in Geneva and Paris He was awarded a law degree by the University of Genevaand, following his return from abroad, entered Serbian diplomatic service in 1907 Although he had previously expressed opposition to the idea of creating Yugoslavia, he became the new country s first ambassador to Romania in 1937 He had a distinguished diplomatic career in this capacity, serving in Istanbul, Sofia, Rome, Athens, Cairo, Madrid and Lisbon Du i spoke several foreign languages and he is remembered as a distinguished diplomat His Acta Diplomatica Diplomatic Letters was published posthumously in the United States in 1952 and in former Yugoslavia in 1991.It was, however, as a poet that Du i gained his greatest distinctions He published his first book of poetry in Mostar in 1901 and his second in Belgrade, 1912 He wrote prose as well several essays and studies about writers, Blago cara Radovana Tsar Radovan s treasure and poetry letters from Switzerland, Greece, Spain and other countries.Like anti , Du i s work was initially heavily influenced by that of Vojislav Ili , the leading Serbian poet of the late 19th century His travels abroad helped him to develop his own individual style, in which the Symbolist movement was perhaps the greatest single influence In his poetry he explored quite new territory that was previously unknown in Serbian poetry He restricted himself to only two verse styles, the symmetrical dodecasyllable the Alexandrine and hendecasyllable both French in origin in order to focus on the symbolic meaning of his work He expressed a double fear, of vulgarity of thought, and vulgarity of expression He saw the poet as an office worker and educated craftsman in the hard work of rhyme and rhythm.Du i went into exile in the United States in 1941 following the German invasion and occupation of Yugoslavia, where he joined his relative Mihajlo Michael in Gary, Indiana From then until his death two years later, he led an Illinois based organization founded by Mihailo Pupin in 1914 which represented the Serbian diaspora in the US During these two years, he wrote many poems, historical books and newspaper articles espousing Serbian nationalist causes and protesting the mass murder of Serbs by the pro Nazi Usta e regime of Croatia During this time he attracted some criticism from other Yugoslav exiles for his espousal of Greater Serbian ideas, a position which also attracted the attention of the US Government s Office of Strategic Services the forerunner of the CIA.He died on 7 April 1943 and was buried in the Serbian Orthodox monastery of Saint Sava in Libertyville, Illinois He expressed a wish in his will to be buried in his home town of Trebinje, a goal which was finally realized when he was reburied there on 22 October 2000 in the newly built Gra anica church.
