Description The aim of this study is to provide an outline of Montenegrin literature and name its specific features. The author presents several milestones that illustrate the relevance of Montenegrin literary heritage and contemporary Montenegrin literature in the wider South Slavic context. He argues that certain authors and works could naturally belong to two or several national literatures, explains why Montenegrin literature shows an extremely high level of interconnectedness with neighboring cultural centers and national contexts, and mentions the most significant authors from Montenegro who enjoy a unique position in Serbian or other South Slavic literatures. The author points out the fact that the formation of the Montenegrin literary canon can be an effective stimulus for innovative interpretations and reassessments and for highlighting the work of authors who have been overlooked due to the traditional perception of Montenegrin literature as a regionally specific component of Serbian literature.
