Sort order. Start your review of Gorski vijenac. It was always considered the great Serbian epic, although quite how this works now that Montenegro has become a separate country I'm not sure.

The plot is a bit uncomfortable for modern tastes — essentially, a load of Montenegrins decide to convert to Islam, and so the local chieftains slaughter them all — but it is a reminder of the Balkans' crucial position there on the often-violent boundary between Europe and "The East".

The cemeteries will bring forth flowers, for some other distant generation! The Serbo-Croatian One of my two copies includes a curious English translation from one James W Wiles — full of lots of energetic, sub-Shakespearean flourishes. It seems very Victorian but I've no idea when it was written and my copy doesn't say.

Here's his rendering of the passage above: Let come those things men thought could never be; Let hell devour; let Satan swing his scythe: Still graveyard turf shall bring forth many a flower, For coming kindreds in Time's later Hour! Stirring stuff!

Wiles's translation is good fun, but even I can see that it's not entirely to be relied upon. Nevertheless, this is essential reading for anyone interested in the area or the language.

The best quote for me is: ''Thrice happy he whose name rings down the years, For he had reason in this world to come.

Ethnic cleansing was never this good. First of all, I would really like to give this book grade 5, but the problem is I am not the biggest fan of poems, a lot of Turkish words kills the flow , not my nation so don't have same emotional charge and was written almost 2 centuries ago so it has lost some of its spirits, because of that, grade 4.

But don't let you that fool you, this is a good book. I am sure there isn't a single person and I mean not a single person in today's world that would wr Ethnic cleansing was never this good. Nevertheless, nice plot and build up for the reckoning. Best line: "U dobru je lako dobro biti, na muci se poznaju junaci! Dec 08, lola added it. Jul 22, Njegus Je rated it did not like it.

He wrote his first poems there to entertain the local chiefs and monks. He remained in Tople until the end of , when he returned to Montenegro's capital, Cetinje.
