Summary/Abstract: This paper analyzes sentential word order as a poetic characteristic of Mak Dizdar’s Stone Sleeper. The focus is on the examination of certain peculiarities in verb positions and their complements and/or adjuncts. The goal is to display the syntax of Stone Sleeper and to what extent it resembles the syntax of Old Bosnian, Old Slavic and Old Church Slavonic texts as they are an intertextual and metatextual frame of Mak’s poetry. The assumption is that the position of syntactic elements can be determined by both the specific demands of poetic syntax and the syntactic patterns adopted from the corpus of Old Slavic (Bosnian) texts.
