In Meša Selimović's The Fortress, Ahmet Shabo, a Bosnian Muslim, returns home to 18th century Sarajevo after fighting for the Ottoman Empire in Russia. The sole survivor of his unit, he discovers that his family has died of disease while he was away. Alone, but also newly contemplative in the wake of his wartime experiences, Shabo is content to wander and think and appreciate the natural world around him, but the world has other plans.

Mehmed Meša Selimović. Selimović started writing fairly late: his first book, collection of short stories Prva četa (The First Company) was published in 1950, and the second, novel Tamnica (Prison) in 1961. Subsequent books Tuđa zemlja (Foreign land, 1962) and Magla i mjesečina (Mist and Moonlight, 1965) were not acclaimed much better.

ovjek i smrt, tema koja je izašla iz Selimovićeve vlastite biografije i sudbine, glavna je tema romana Tvrđava. Selimović je kroz Sabov lik prikazao ono što može da zadesi bilo koga od nas običnih smrtnika. Radnja romana se dešava u XVII vijeku, neposredno poslije Hoćinske bitke, u muslimanskoj sarajevskoj sredini. Kroz konfliktne odnose koji se javljaju kod Šabe, Selimović želi da prikaže sposobnost ljudi da odgovore na neka životna pitanja.

I found this a difficult book to get into - the style of the translation made it heavy going - but the story of how a young Bosnian copes when he returns home after fighting in Russia in the eighteenth century is vividly portrayed. There are some flashes of humour and hope but, on the whole, this is a bleak novel.

The Island unfolds as the life story of a retired couple who, in earlier years, had lived on the mainland and are now approaching an increasingly lonely and frustrating old age. Throughout this intriguing and fascinating work, we encounter dazzling and richly puzzling metaphors, enclosed within other metaphors of ever larger scope and ever deeper and more elusive meaning. Though thematically interrelated and deliberately complementary as parts of the novel as a whole, each of the nineteen chapters of this unusual and exquisite work of literature could quite handsomely pass for a first rate short story in its own right. United by the destinies of The Island's main characters, their families, friends and neighbours, the chapters are actually smaller islands clustered into a compact mini-archipelago which in itself represents a somewhat larger island in the sea of the author's writing as a reflection of his own perception of human experience.
