New Voices in Montenegrin Literature

Andrej Nikolaidis and Ognjen Spahic in the spotlight

Until the generation of authors that began forming during the 1990s, Montenegro had never had a group of writers of similar age who shared attitudes but also brought something fresh to its literary scene. Yet after years of war and the country’s independence, there came a line of authors whose actions and creations have rightly earned them recognition as a true generation of new voices. Not so much due to their shared poetics, but to the modern values they have introduced to Montenegrin literature and by their social activism: a univocal condemnation of war and the social anomalies of their country, and those around it.
