Shakespeare's Works have been translated into Serbian since 1860


Kostic, Laza

Laza Kostic (1841-1910) "The last great poet among the Romanticists, Laza Kostic (1841-1910), was a controversial personality, and the critics had a field day with him. He was more celebrated than understood in his youth, and he experienced a general loss of popularity in his old age, and real fame came to him only after his death, although even that was slow in coming. Nowadays, it is generally accepted that he is the originator of modern Serbian poetry, the predecessor of the avant garde and other creative experiments which prevailed in Serbian poetry much, much later. In his life, and in his poetry as well, he constantly deviated from the ordinary and the customary, becoming known as an example of a bizarre, eccentric Romanticist who was rarely taken seriously by anyone. Yet, this poetic fantast was the most educated Serbian poet of the time; he knew classical and modern languages, translated Shakespeare, was a writer of aesthetic and philosophical treatises, and was the most significant thinker of Serbian Romanticism" (Serbian Literature)
