Haunted Serbia : representations of history and war in the literary imagination by David A Norris( )

12 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Haunting is what happens when the past is disturbed and the victims of previous violence, who are thought to be buried and forgotten, are brought back to the present and made to live again. Serbian fiction writers of the 1980s exhume the ghosts of the past, re-remembering the cruelty of the twentieth century, reinterpreting the heroic role of the Partisans and the extraordinary measures taken to defend Yugoslavia's recently won independence and socialist revolution. Their uncanny and ghostly imagery challenges the assumptions of the master discourse promoted by the country's orthodox communist authorities and questions the historical roots of social and cultural identities. The instability of this period of transition is deepened during the wars of the 1990s, when authors turn from the memory of past violence to face the ferocious brutality of new conflicts. The haunting evocations in their work continue to articulate fresh uncertainties as the trappings of modern civilization are stripped away and replaced by the destructive logic of civil war. The past returns once more with renewed energy in the struggle to make sense of a vastly changed world

In the wake of the Balkan myth : questions of identity and modernity by David A Norris( )

3 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book opens and closes with the wars in former Yugoslavia, giving a different slant to the crisis in its study of novels and cinema from the region. The West has constructed the Balkans as a primitive space and has simplified its historical and geographical complexities into the narrow horizons of myth. This process of cultural colonialism, begun over 150 years ago, can be traced right up to recent mass media reports about recent conflicts in former Yugoslavia. Such negative views have produced anxieties about issues of identity in the region, and many writers describe the collision of cultures as foreigners arrive from an outside world which is self-consciously superior and blind to local realities. Their fears lead to more dramatic stories of the total destruction of civilization and a return to an atavistic, pre-modern state which is the epitome of the Balkan myth itself. Nowhere is this apocalyptic vision more prevalent than in new writing and film about the wars of the 1990s
