Summary/Abstract: The paper offers potential readings of urban / city space in Zuko Džumhur’s Putovanje bijelom lađom. Interpretation of space as a structural element in literature has already been extended to the inquiry of producing the space through the literary text, ie. to the question: how does the urban / city space become a metaphor for the text we are trying to read and perceive. The poetics of space has already been studied during the twentieth century by Gaston Bachelard and contemporary readings of urban/city space in literature have been analyzed by, inter alia, Mirko Kovač, Dževad Karahasan and Krešimir Nemec. Enumerating the topoi (atelier, streets, parks, hotels, restaurants, pastry shops) in this book, Džumhur has formed tithe Yugoslavian cities (spaces of nostalgia and memory) and represented few significant artists, mostly writers and painters, who exist as figures memories.
