Abstract

Poet Vladimir Nazor had a key influence on the Croatian national consciousness with his poems, stories and myths reflecting current political and social difficulties and the fight between Good and Evil. His still popular works uplifted the national spirit from the start of his active life towards the end of the 19th century. Nazor made one of the most spectacular symbolic gestures throughout Europe during the Second World War by joining the antifascist national liberation movement. Nazor became a symbol of resistance. His role of a distinguished elder statesman extended after the war years, but recollections of some contemporaries raise interesting questions.
