EMINENT WRITERS OF CROATIAN LITERATURE - 100th Anniversary of the Birth of Mate Balota
In the course of his exciting life he had changed many professions: ha was a sailor, stonemason, worker, journalist, miner, fugitive, convict, university professor, secretary of the Academy of Arts and Sciences.
He is imbued with patriotic love for the Croatian language and Croatia as a historical country, particulary by his love for the city of Zadar, the mythical past of our towns Zadar and Nin, our mountains, particulary Velebit.
He was witty cynical, with a tendency for the unusual and bizzare in the choice of themes for his stories. By such distinctive language Matoš has created a literary opus that, in the period of the Croatian Literary Modernism, can be ranked way above any literary productions in Croatia so far.
