Zbrano delo, 2. knjiga. Nezbrana proza 1898–1903: črtice, povesti, novele

Author: Zofka Kveder
Year: 2010

The second volume of Zofka Kveder’s Collected Works features narrative prose, which belongs to the writer’s creatively most intense period (1898–1903), when, in addition to three prose collections, she also published an exceptional number of sketches, short stories, and novellas in newspapers, magazines, and almanacs. The majority of these texts were never reprinted, and so the second volume of Kveder’s collected works reveals a prose that is diverse in genre and exceptionally thematically rich, and hence an important contribution to Slovenian modernist fiction.
The settings used are also unusual for Slovenian literature up until that time. The writer’s stories are set in the countryside as well as in Ljubljana, Trieste, Zagreb, Vienna, Bern, Zürich, and Prague. Even though the publications of these narrative texts remained largely without any critical responses, the second volume of Kveder’s Zbrano delo is accompanied by critical commentary, which—apart from the rare but interesting reactions to Kveder’s publications in periodicals expressed by her female contemporaries—provides information on how the works were created, their special historical features, and the editorial changes to the author’s texts.
