WE HAD A CLASSIC: Notes Defining Predrag Matvejević (2020, 10,700 words)

Japanese Slavic and East European Studies Vol.40. , 2020

A unit in 2 parts:

1/ A necrological look back at PM’s writings and how I encountered them as old friend, with stress on those written after the fall of SFR Yugoslavia, about the “ex” world and what values remain (as in Mediterranean Breviary, The Other Venice, and Daily Bread);

2/ review of a booklet by Tommaso di Francesco, Breviario jugoslavo, 2018, of interviews with PM on ex-Yugoslav affairs curing 20’ years, the main point being that the sins of successors much surpass those of SFR Yugoslavia
