Summary/Abstract: The work deals with Baltić’s narrative methods as a distinctive feature which his Yearbook (Godišnjak), and his annals in general, share with literature. At the same time it is not the intent to simply declare this historiographic text to be a literary one, nor shall narration, i.e. the literary value of the Yearbook, be considered only as a concurrent feature, or as a successful ornament which makes the text more attractive to readers. It is considered that Baltić’s narrative methods are not random but that they are tightly connected with the meaning of the text and the effects which it produces. Therefore the narrative methods and Baltić’s attitude towards the conventions of the chronical genre are considered to be a narrative equivalent, i.e. an expression of the way in which the historical reality is being experienced, presented and explained through the text. Hence it is the intent to try to arrive at Baltić’s way of understandig and interpreting reality through narrative techniques.
