La Guzla de Prosper Mérimée (French)

“La Guzla de Prosper Mérimée

is a collection of short stories and poems by Vojislav Ilić, a Serbian writer, and linguist. The book was published in 1827 and is considered a masterpiece of Serbian Romanticism.

The title refers to “Guzla,” a type of musical instrument popular in the Balkans, and Prosper Mérimée, a French author and scholar who visited Serbia in the early 19th century and wrote about its culture and folklore. The book is written in French, with many of the stories and poems translated from Serbian.

The collection is divided into two parts: the first part consists of stories based on Serbian folklore and legends, while the second part is made up of original poems by Ilić. The stories in the first part are narrated by a fictitious Serbian bard named Janko, who recounts tales of heroic battles, tragic love stories, and supernatural encounters.

The stories and poems in “La Guzla” reflect Ilić’s deep interest in Serbian folk culture and traditions, and his desire to preserve and promote them in the face of increasing Westernization and modernization. The book also represents an important milestone in the development of Serbian literature, as it helped establish the genre of Romanticism in Serbian letters.

Despite its importance and influence, “La Guzla” remains relatively unknown outside of Serbia and the Balkans. However, it continues to be celebrated and studied in Serbia as a seminal work of national literature and a testament to the rich cultural heritage of the Balkans.
