Representation Of Some Of The Traditionally Women’s Values In The New Bosnian Women’s Novel

Fatima Bećarević

Abstract


Just as the great themes in literature seamed to be exhausted or at least suppressed, at the beginning of the 21st century disceretly in the focus of Bosnian-Herzegovinian literature were introduced novels worldview pointed to the importance of the suppressed ethics of concern, solidarity and acceptance of the Other. They are novels by Bosnian-Herzegovinian writers who talk from the womwn’s perspectives about suppresed problems, meningful relationships, and not accepting the Others. Showing that recent line of female literature becomes more visible, it is also confirmed by rewards for the literary competitions that these authors have recived, indicating the existence of a certain vision ofinstitutional support. The subject of reasrch in this paper are the novels by Bosnian writers that were awarded by the Foundation for Publsihing Sarajevo over past three years: the novel „Life lines“ by Emina Žuna (in 2015.), „Reconstruction“ by Ljiljana Pirolić (in 2016.) and „The name day of St.Katerine Ricci“ by Nada Djerek (in 2017.) Instability, disorientation and the suppression of certain values connect these novels, though the poet’s sensitivities of writers are different, the themes are inconisistent, timely and spatially located in different dimensions, the way they talk about the positions of women in Bosnian society reveals the reliefs of chronotopically aficited and powerful self-reflection of reflected inner worlds. The themes of these novels have not been in the focus of the Bosnian female writing so for and are conditioned by social conjunctures and traditional legacies, represented from the perspective of gendered subject that focuses on the repressed sphere od domesticity and points to the importance of solidarity, care and respect for the Other and different. Using contemporary theoretical knoowledge in the area of culture theory, gender and identity in the analiysis of these novels, we have pionted out the ways and possibilities of different representations and interpretations of traditional female values such as solidarity and caring.
