The Fortress

Beautifully written, with brilliant insights into the ever mysterious depths of the human heart, The Fortressis another Selimovic’s masterpiece and one of the most significant novels from the Yugoslav literature.

Set in the 18thcentury Bosnia under Ottoman rule, the novel portrays Ahmet Shabo, a young man who has just returned home after a war in a distant country. After his tormenting experiences, Ahmet has trouble rejoining the society. He rather spends his time alone, contemplating the value and purpose od life. Only when he meets a girl who makes his heart sing once again does his will for life rekindle. Together, they confront the oppressive system which turns their lives into a daily struggle for survival.

In disturbing echoes of the present day, Ahmet Shabo rehearses issues we live with now, in our apparently distant, transformed world, their somber litany a fitting testament to his creators prescience.
