Summary/Abstract: The aim of the paper is to analyze the space of Herzegovina in a collection of poems entitled Metamorphoses (1920) by Antun Branko Simic (1898-1925) within the context of the modern and contemporary approaches to the poetics of space, and wider theoretical and cultural perspectives. The special attention will be given to “the reading” of the space of Herzegovina in two poems entitled „Herzegovina“ and in a poem “Mother“ that would illuminate the transformations of both the landscape and the essence of Simic’s Metamorphoses.
