Summary/Abstract: This work tries to examine the poststructuralist concept of otherness in poetry with social themes whose authors are poets Antun Branko Šimić and Aleksa Šantić. Following the idea that Balkan is settled at the margines of Europe and that it symbolizes place of war, social insecurity and political tensions, from the first side, and following the fact that Antun Branko Šimić and Aleksa Šantić are poets whose work is part of Balkan`s literature, from the other side, this work focuses on the poetic figures of workers, cripples, lost women and their attempt to express their social position.
