Among the translations, his work Knjiga Ovidijeva od lika ljubenoga (1528) stands out the most, and in its accompanying epistle he presents his views on translation. It is assumed that he wrote love poems in the first phase of his literary career, but his preserved work reveals a man who thought about the futility of worldly possessions and God's grace (Tombstone of Frane Hektorović, etc.).
