Republic of Secret Love
Baroque poet and translator Ignjat Đurđević was born in the Dubrovnik Republic, as a member of the noble House of Giorgi. As a youth, he led a rather reckless life, often indulging in debauchery. His love adventures cost him the position of the Island Šipan’s Duke. Because of his unrequited love for a maid from Dubrovnik and a libertine poem he wrote to her, Đurđević even had to leave the city for a while. Though working as a teacher, being a Benedictine for a while, and even holding several political functions in the city, Đurđević is best remembered for his love poems which are considered some of the best Croatian lyrics of the era.
Thousand Verses from the Magical Island
Born in Dubrovnik in 1482, Vetranović entered the Benedictine Order in 1507, on the island of Mljet. During the 16th century, the monastery was the center of the Mljet Benedictine Congregation and Vetranović served as its first president. Đurđević wrote prolifically throughout his life, leaving a large body of mostly patriotic work that included prose, drama, religious and satirical poetry, and an unfinished epic running up to 4374 verses. In all his literary works, this monk never hid his patriotism.
