Writer. He tried his hand at various genres - comedy, historical and bourgeois drama, and at story, novel, travelogue, and so on. His talent is best seen in his comedies and in his humorist prose. In his best comedies (The People's Representative, A Suspicious Person, The Cabinet Minister's Wife, The Deceased, and others) he unified all the virtues of his predecessors in this genre - the importance of Sterija's themes and the virtuosity of Trifkovic's dramatic technique. In many scenes in these pieces, he rendered a social comedy of Serbia in his time, presenting provincial merchants, district chiefs, police clerks, good housewives, greater and lesser villains who talk most frankly about their wickedness and the comic twist that occurs when they become the subjects of the two obsessive powers of contemporary society - power and money. Nusic is the magician of laughter, Serbia's most popular playwright; his works were performed on stages abroad and they gathered grateful audiences in many countries of the world.
