Summary/Abstract: This text explores the similarities and differences between postcolonial and postcommunist literature and criticism. While tracing certain approaches they have in common, it also reveals significant differences which are due both to historical circumstances and geographical location. Dealing more specifically with Macedonian literature and criticism, the text discusses their characteristics in the period after the fall of communism and disintegration of Yugoslavia, of which Macedonia used to be a part. What is most discernible about the development of literature in this period is its tendency to combine traditional topics, common for the Macedonian culture in the past, with modernist and postmodernist methods of writing, learned from the literary theoretical and critical practice of Western Europe and America.
