Vladimir Nazor and Ovidije Nazon - poets of tendre love

Ph.D. Olga Perić will hold an interesting lecture – Vladimir Nazor and Ovid Nazon, a poet of gentle love – on the occasion of the 2000 anniversary of death on Tuesday, July 24 at 9 pm in the Ivan Rendić Gallery in Supetar.

The book of Ovid Nazon (43 BC – 17/18) made it incredibly easy to compose the verse – mostly love themes, whether it sang precious at the door, or giving instructions on how to conquer a loved one or even how to cure it from love. In the most famous work “Metamorphoses”, the miraculous mythological transformations interpret many of the phenomena in nature: planting water, plants, animals, stars, soil configurations, floods. One of the stories is a big fire on the ground, which he wanted to prove that the Sun’s son was causing Faeton, wisely managing his father’s horses and chariots. Vladimir Nazor, however, in Faeton’s poem discusses with Ovid, is Faeton a rebel who wants to liberate the country from robbery to gods, which negates human fear and obedience.

Ph.D. Olga Perić, a professor of classical literature, Nazor’s Priestess and Nazor’s knowledge of classical education and the influence of classical literature on his creativity.

Brač is an island which can be reached by sea and air. Here are some basics.

BY SEA ///

There are two ferry lines connecting Brač with a land.

First is in Supetar, connecting Brač with Split, and the second is on Sumartin, connecting Brač with Makarska. There is a third port that can be reached by regular local boat lines, and that is Bol, on the south part of the island. Here, you can reach Brač from Split, or from a neighbouring island Hvar.
