What will a poet dress for?
According to Dragutin Tadijanović, Tin brought a long green dress with him when he moved to his new apartment...
Tin Ujević, a famous Croatian poet and bohemian, according to his own story, loved to wear dresses as a small child. He did it because he felt more comfortable in them. Some sources mention that he had this tendency even in his later years.
Namely, at the end of World War II, Tin lived in Tadijanović's bathroom, which the latter adapted to become the poet's short-term apartment. According to Dragutin Tadijanović, Tin brought a long green dress with him when he moved to his new apartment.
He hung it carefully so that it would not crumple. He kept that dress carefully. His care for that garment was unusual, for the nonchalant poet generally cared very little for his possessions. His coat was always torn, and apart from endless piles of manuscripts, he didn't even have any of his other belongings. It is not known what the poet did with the formal dress.
