Vintage Posters | Aretheus | Grzegorz Morycinski

This play (Areteusz, or, Aretheus) was written by Miroslav Krleža (1893–1981), who was widely considered to be the greatest Croatian writer of the 20th century. He wrote notable works in all the literary genres, including poetry, theater, short stories, and novels. His works often include themes of bourgeois hypocrisy and conformism in Austria-Hungary and Yugoslavia. Krleža wrote numerous essays on problems of art, history, politics, literature, philosophy, and military strategy, and was known as one of the great polemicists of the century. Krleža’s formative influences include Scandinavian drama, French symbolism, and Austrian and German expressionism and modernism, by key authors like Ibsen, Strindberg and Proust.
