The Bridge on the Drina is a vivid depiction of the suffering history has imposed upon the people of Bosnia from the late 16th century to the beginning of World War I. As we seek to make sense of the current nightmare in this region, this remarkable, timely book serves as a reliable guide to its people and history. "No better introduction to the study of Balkan and Ottoman history exists, nor do I know of any work of fiction that more persuasively introduces the reader to a civilization other than our own. It is an intellectual and emotional adventure to encounter the Ottoman world through Andric's pages in its grandiose beginning and at its tottering finale. It is, in short, a marvelous work, a masterpiece, and very much sui generis. . . . Andric's sensitive portrait of social change in distant Bosnia has revelatory force."--William H. McNeill, from the introduction "The dreadful events occurring in Sarajevo over the past several months turn my mind to a remarkable historical novel from the land we used to call Yugoslavia, Ivo Andric's The Bridge on the Drina."--John M. Mohan, Des Moines Sunday Register Born in Bosnia, Ivo Andric (1892-1975) was a distinguished diplomat and novelist. He was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1961. His books include The Damned Yard: And Other Stories, and The Days of the Consuls.… (mer)

The Bridge on the Drina makes for an excellent read. The author effectively captures both the historical facts of the period as well as the feel of the times. He does so without missing the personal struggles of those involved. He conveys the ethnic and religious tensions with sympathy and tolerance for all sides. ( )

Time for another title from 1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die!

The Bridge on the Drina, by Nobel Prize winning author Ivo Andrić (1892-1975), is also listed on 'The World's Required Reading List at TEDEd' compiled from books assigned to students around the world, and I've also seen it reviewed at the Global Literature in Libraries blog (where, in 2017, I promised to move it up the TBR where it has been waiting patiently since 2010).

As 1001 Books says, it's more a chronicle than a novel, organised into vignettes describing the life of the local population in Bosnia and Herzegovina and its transformations over the centuries. It's also rather a melancholy experience to read it, because the metaphor of the bridge as a symbol of coexistence, as depicted in the front cover image by Wiktor Sadowski, collapses under the weight of recent history.

(I wouldn't be the only Australian who didn't know where Bosnia was until the Bosnian War (1992-95) erupted. But I learned fast. In the 1990s I taught refugee Bosnian children who had fled dreadful experiences, and long afterwards I was still having to deal with unacceptable hostilities towards them from Serbian children in the playground.)



The book begins with the building of the bridge during the 16th-century Ottoman Empire, and ends with World War I, when it was partially destroyed. For three centuries the bridge is cherished by the villagers as a gift of Mehmed-paša Sokolović, the Grand Vezir, a man who—in forced tribute to the Sultan—was taken as a boy from his Christian family, forced to convert to Islam, given a Turkish name, and served three Sultans during his lifetime. When he rose to great power in the Sultan's court, he sought to assuage the pain that had never left him, by building a magnificent bridge in his homeland.



Designed by the Ottoman architect Mimar Sinan, the bridge was a marvel of engineering and until the funding for it ran out in the dying days of the Ottoman Empire, it boasted a caravanserai (a roadside inn) as a focal point for drinking and gossiping. But the building of it was fraught with tension, and Andrić does not spare the reader the violence that was used on the hapless forced labourers who built it. Legends of children walled up inside it are remembered along with the gruesome torture and death of a man thought to be a saboteur.

Andrić's genius lies in his brilliant juxtapositions of humanity at its best and its worst.

Le personnage principal est un pont. Difficile de s'y attacher comme à un personnage de chaire et d'os et pourtant l'auteur y arrive. Comme point fixe dans l'histoire de ces hommes d'une frontière entre l'orient et l'occident. Superbement écrit et traduit. "(...) cette souveraineté (celle de la Turquie dans les Balkans), tel un fantastique reflux de la mer, avait soudain décru et s'était retirée à perte de vue, les laissant là, telle une végétation aquatique sur la terre ferme, trompés et menacés, abandonnés à eux-mêmes et à leur sort funeste. Tout cela venait de Dieu, et tout cela entrait, sans aucun doute, dans les dispositions de la divine providence, mais l'homme avait du mal à le comprendre; il avait le souffle coupé et la conscience troublée, et il sentait bien que l'on tirait sournoisement le sol sous ses pieds; comme un tapis, et que les frontières qui auraient dû être stables et solides devenaient fluides et changeantes, se déplaçaient, s'éloignaient et disparaissaient, comme les ruisseaux capricieux du printemps. " ( )

Andrić takes us through the history of Bosnia from the early 16th century, when janissaries took a ten-year-old boy from his parents in a village near Višegrad. He would grow up to become the Ottoman statesman Mehmet Pasha and commission, as his pious legacy, the building of a stone bridge and a han at the point where he had been carried over the Višegrad ferry. In a series of vignettes, some linked, some not, we are taken through to 1914, when young people of the author's own generation are facing the opportunities of modern education and communications, and the challenges of the new political situation in the Balkans.

Although Andrić tells us a lot about the big things that are going on in the region over those four hundred years, everything is shown through the eyes of the ordinary people — Moslems, Serbs, and Jews; later also Austrians, Hungarians and Galicians — who live in the small town of Višegrad and meet to gossip on the bridge. History is experienced as a series of more or less inexplicable external events that affect their lives, it never seems to be anything they can influence themselves. Gruesome descriptions of arbitrary executions and tragic tales of suicide are mixed up with comic tales of romance and commercial intrigue, or with the minor tragedies of ordinary people's lives. The dignified conservative we see questioning reckless innovation in one story reappears in later ones as the last eccentric stick-in-the-mud holding on to the old ways against all reason, and the bridge constantly reappears as the structure that gives the stories a common thread.

Fascinating, absorbing, and an unusual way of looking at history: despite the long span of years covered it never loses its very human, very local feel: Andrić manages to make all these diverse characters from different cultures and ages into people we feel we know, somehow. ( )

Un puente sobre el Drina (en serbio: Na Drini ćuprija, На Дрини ћуприја) es una novela del escritor serbio1​ Ivo Andrić, quien la escribió en Belgrado durante la Segunda Guerra Mundial, y la publicó en 1945. Esta novela le mereció el Premio Nobel de Literatura en 1961. La trama se desarrolla en la ciudad de Višegrad y su puente Mehmed Paša Sokolović, sobre el río Drina. La historia abarca cerca de cuatro siglos, incluyendo periodos de dominación otomana y austrohúngara, y describe las relaciones y existencias de sus habitantes, en particular los musulmanes y ortodoxos de Bosnia y Herzegovina.

«Basta con leer la espléndida novela Un puente sobre el Drina, de Ivo Andric, el único premio Nobel de Literatura yugolasvo, para darse cuenta de la pervivencia de los terribles fantasmas del pasado en los espíritus balcánicos.»Miguel Ángel Villena, El País ( )
