Summary/Abstract: „Hasanaginica“ , one of the most representative texts of Bosnian – Herzegovinian literary tradition, functions as a poetic challenge for many poets. Aleksa Šantić was inspired by ballade`s emotional qualities and he used its poetical potentials to made drama Hasanaginica. Šantić tries to present dramatical picture of a legend that functions as a synonym of our oral tradition. Following the traditional stereotypical fable of the ballade, with a few real episodic characters of the time, Šantic remains consistent in sketching the main actors and their expected actions. On the other hand, the poetic melodrama that is projected onto the aggregated monological forms, and the drama’s main character’s pathetic sentiments, in its exaggerated nature, poetically predetermines Šantić’s attitude towards the writing of the dramatic text.
