Milorad Pavic and Hyperfiction

by Jasmina Mihajlović

Robert Coover, well-known American writer and Professor at Brown University (New York), in his text The End of Books (The New York Times, June 21,1992) which may be called programmatic in a specific way, as well as in his larger article entitled Hyperficion – Novels for the Computer (The New York Times, August 29,1993) speaks about a phenomenon which appeared in America inside post modernism and spread in Europe and Japan.

What The Reviews Say

In his fatherland Pavić was accepted in the best way from the very moment he published Dictionary of the Khazars. The first review of that „book of the future“ anticipated a lot of things critic will have later to say: „This wonder of a book is at one and the same time a novel, a collection of stories, a book of verse, a historical study, a cabalistic handbook, in short – absolute literature“ (Raša Livada).
