Ivo Andric (1892:Travnik-1975:Belgrade)
Born in Dolac, Bosnia (Formerly Austro-Hungarian Empire)

He studied philosphy in Zagreb, Vienna, Graz and Krakow, which probably accounts for his Kierkegaardian pessimism.

He became a Yugoslav Diplomat and resided in Belgrade.

Andric began his literary career as a poet, and later published collections of short stories and novellas.

In 1945 he published three novels: The Bridge on the Drina, Bosnian Story and The Woman from Sarajevo.

In 1961 Andric was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature. He died in 1975.
