The writer and the sea

─ The place of birth is just a detail in the biography. ─

Mirko Kovač, an important Yugoslav writer, was born in Montenegro. He was one of those writers who do not care about the nation. He said that he has no sense of belonging to a community, society, or religion, least of all to a nation.

Paragraph image 635

He left home early and supported himself during his education in Belgrade, all in order to become a writer. He said that, living in various places from Belgrade to Zagreb, he felt that he belonged only to his friends, the people he loved. Despite the fact that, in his own words, he belonged only to himself and literature, he stood up for the society in which he lives. Defiantly, during the Milosevic regime, he stood up against him. This was tantamount to madness at the time. He participated in many protests where he was often the main speaker. In 1991, because of this, he changed his long-standing Belgrade address to Rovinj.
