Summary/Abstract: The paper deals with the study of syntactic and stylistic characteristics of the novels written by Mihailo Lalic (1914−1992), one of the most important literary artists of the second half of the twentieth century. From today's perspective and opinions about contemporary literary criticism, Lalic remains distinctive in that field, in which he was the most successful and left works that include Montenegrin literature and culture and go beyond narrow national frameworks and timelines. Therefore, our research corpus consists of the works that are, by their nature and chronology, the most suitable ones for the syntactic stylistic analysis: Svadba (1950 and 1970), Raskid (1955 and 1969), Lelejska gora (in 1957. and 1983), Ratna sreća (1973 and 1983) and Tamara (1992).
