Summary/Abstract: In the book “Monument”, Berislav Blagojević writes twenty-one short stories in which he expresses a wide range of interests in various aspects of reality, which are considered and shaped into a literary text. Thus, starting from the existence of Don Quixote (and all serious writers, in a way, necessarily refer to Cervantes' novel), the writer creates and introduces us to an imaginary space in which the present constantly confronts the past, where in an undisguised critical tone, and with an ironic manner, points to the anomalies of human existence at the beginning of the third millennium; then there is the postmodernist play with the book, the library, reading and the very act of creation; further, removing layers of historical dust from documents and turning them into fiction; emotional evocation of the past, etc.
