Excerpt from A Trilogy of Dubrovnik In his Trilogy of Dubrovnik the author has caught the tragical moment of the city's loss of liberty. The three parts apparently disconnected are closely united because of their deep relation to the past. Whatever the characters under the strain of the new life might be doing, the little brass bell in the chapel whether pulled by invisible hands or whether not touched at all, is always sounding, reminding the noblemen of their sacred past. In "Allons Enfants" where the French army is marching into the city to the triumphant air of the Marseillaise, the poet strikes the keynote to his plays. There has been a great deal of discussion, loud screaming and noise before the fatal moment; there is a great stillness and deathlike resignation meeting the setting sun of liberty. Dubrovnik, the free Republic on the Adriatic, is no more. The second part of the Trilogy "Afterglow" gives us a picture of the city after its loss of liberty. The problem we meet there is a well known one and somehow forshadows thoughts developed in the third part. "On the Terrace." Here the poet has placed his action in the beginning of the 20th century, we deal with those who have learned to forget and who are seeking to drown their present unhappiness in the deafening din of modern amusements. But there are still those who can neither forget nor understand the new life and we are continually reminded of the past. Yes, in the poet's close relation to the glorious past we must seek his poetical inspiration. Ivo Vojnovich is a native of Dubrovnik. Belonging to one of the oldest Aristocratic families, he has lived the life he is picturing. I remember him telling me how Madam Mara in Afterglow was a very close portrait of an old friend of his and in the same way most of his characters are traced from life.
