Summary/Abstract: Šantić is one of the first Bosnian poet who promoted the sonnet form at the earliest 20th century in this region. From 1890 when was published his first sonnet, to the latest verses, Santić did spoke thru the form of sonnet about all topics that occupied his attention as a poet and as a man, but not always with the same dynamics. In the initial stage of his creation sonnets are just side form in which he tried his hands. In the period from 1905 to 1914 they become the center of his work, and at the final stage the interest for this form was decreasing. The paper examines how much did solid sonnet form had impact on the poetry of the poet, and vice versa, how did poet change form trying to adapt it to his own expression.
