Na Drini ćuprija

?έντρο όλων αυτών το γεφύρι αμετακίνητο από τη θέση του σαν το πεπρωμένο που διατρέχει πότε φωτεινό και πότε σκοτεινό τις ανθρώπινες ζωές Μόνο αν διαβάσει κανείς το προφητικό αυτό έργο μπορεί πραγματικά να κατανοήσει τα τρ?. Between the fear that something would happen and the hope that still it wouldn t there is much space than one thinks On that narrow hard bare and dark space a lot of us spend our lives Ivo Andri Published in 1945 but written earlier probably during the war years when Nobel Prize winner Andri had given up his diplomatic work and was living as uietly as anyone could in Belgrade during those years of upheaval The Bridge Over the Drina is the rather unusually told history of the town of Vi egrad in the south east of Bosnia near the border with Serbia The period of time covered by the book is exactly the lifespan of the monumental bridge which was built at Vi egrad around 1570 by the Ottomans and which survived undamaged until 1914 While the book focuses on the town and its inhabitants the bridge itself is the main character the hero the unifying force and the rationale of this entire chronicle The author succeeds in making his account as interesting and as full of suspense as any novel by weaving history myth and story together in a very natural way which allows the narrative to move fluidly from the general to the particular and back again so that the reader is swept along in the torrent of words and happenings There were violent times in the history of the bridge and I have to admit that I skimmed over the most harrowing episode which occurred near the beginning but fortunately there were no such scenes recounted The town of Vi egrad during the period of the narrative was home to Muslims and Jews Orthodox Christians and Roman Catholics Turks and Greeks Bosnians Croats and Serbs Montenegrins and Italians Galicians and Poles Austrians and Hungarians and according to Andri they all lived fairly peacefully together for the most part He implies that the takeover by the Hapsburg Empire towards the end of the nineteenth century and the dragging of the town into the modern age via the railway sounded the death knell of that peaceful co existence
