Poet. He spent most of his life in Mostar. He attended merchant schools in Trieste, Italy and Ljubljana, Slovenia.He was strongly influenced by Jovan Jovanović Zmaj, Vojislav Ilic and Heinrich Heine. The topics and images of his poems ranged from strong emotions for social injustices of his time to nostalgic love. His poems about Mostar and the river Neretva brathe pure patriotism and are considered particularly beautiful. He wrote a number of love songs in the style of the Muslim love songs, sevdalinka. His most well known sevdalinka is Emina (popular Muslim female name). In honour of this poet one village in Vojvodina (part of Serbia and Montenegro) is named after him. (bio by: Jelena)
