Abstract:

Research in this paper is focused on identifying and analizing the ideological aspects of reception of the two recognized Serbian writers (Njegoš, the most famous Serbian poet of 19th century; and Ivo Andrić, the Nobel prize winner) in late 20th and early 21st century slavic and historical research. It is shown that a considerable number of foreign academic reviews of Serbian literature subjected it to exclusively political contextualization and interpretation, misinterpreted it as nationalistic and orientalistic, and finally – in many examples the reason for including it in the sphere of academic interest was completely outside the domain of literature.
