“The conference encompasses a very wide range of interpretations of the discourse on the victory, from national to contemporary literature. It absolutely implies a discourse on the victory in the whole canon of world literature, so here we are talking about the winners of an old man Millija and the Latin world in Andrić’s stories and historical figures, about the creativity of Alexander Pushkin and other authors,” said Vraneš.
She added that was also planned an insight into Japanese literature and English literature for children, as well as the discourse on the victory and defeat.
