Miodrag Pavlović

Miodrag Pavlović

Miodrag Pavlović (Serbian Cyrillic: Миодраг Павловић; About this sound listen ) was born on 28 November 1928 in Novi Sad, Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes. He graduated from the University of Belgrade with a degree in medicine in 1954. He studied foreign languages and has written his first volume of poetry, 87 Poems. It appeared in 1952, the year the Yugoslav authorities, responding to a public address by the Croatian writer Miroslav Krleža, allowed more freedom of expression in politics and the arts.

In 1960 Pavlović was appointed director of drama at the National Theatre in Belgrade. He also worked for twenty years as editor for the leading publishing house of Prosveta.

A theme occupying Pavlović and many other intellectuals in the former Yugoslavia, Romania, Bulgaria, Macedonia, Greece and Albania, is the continuity between the ancient peoples of the Balkans and their modern-day descendants. In Pavlović's work as well as in that of the Macedonian poet Bogomil Gyuzel or the Albanian writer Ismail Kadare, there are frequent references to the ancient and medieval past. Among his historical poems, most important ones are ‘Odisej na Kirkinom ostrvu’ (‘Odysseus on Circe's Island’), ‘Eleuzijske seni’ (‘Elysian Shades’), ‘Vasilije II Bugaroubica’ (‘Vasily II Bugaroctone’) and ‘Kosovo’.

These poems are often allegorical in nature, referring in fact to our own times, with their tales of manipulation, deceit and, especially, fear. Written directly in the present are such poems as ‘Prisoner’ (untitled in the Serbian original), ‘Requiem’, ‘Strah’ (‘Fear’), ‘Pod zemlyom’ (‘Under the Ground’) and ‘Kavge’ (‘Feud’).
