This Time, About Pain

Writer, critic and university professor Mihajlo Pantić won Belgrade City Literary Award for his book "Ovoga Puta o Bolu" (This Time, About Pain) published in 2007. The motif of pain dominates each of the book's twelve short stories, but reading each one brings about a catharsis; a cleansing through reading the lines about everyday events in New Belgrade, events that are filled with monotonous meditations and intimate memories.

"Writing is a form of cleansing, and sometimes of anesthesia. But, one cannot write about pain while one is experiencing it; pain has no form, as an Italian poet said. Pain must pass to a certain degree, or be pushed to deeper reaches in order to be spoken of. The amount of pain has nothing to do with the quality of a story, just as experienced suffering is no guarantee of artistic value. But, it is also true that pain and suffering do inspire storytelling. We do have a need to ease the pain by talking about it. Naturally, in an artistically articulated manner. Like everyone else, I too, suffered pain of this or that kind and had an urge to think it out in a literary way. This constitutes a clear and strong motive to write."Mihajlo Pantić /
