Balade Petrice Kerempuha***
(Ballads of Petrica Kerempuh) – In Kaikavian dialect. By Miroslav Krleza
The Ballads of Petrica Kerempuh (Croatian: Balade Petrice Kerempuha) is a philosophically poetic work by the Croatian writer Miroslav Krleža, composed in the form of thirty poems between December 1935 and March 1936. It is written in a language based on the Kajkavian dialect. Krleža’s expression is heavily interspersed with archaic words of Latin, German, and Hungarian origin—most of them are found in Kajkavian or constructed to match it. Kajkavian has many Latin, German, and Hungarian loanwords, as opposed to standard Croatian, which mostly has loanwords from Turkish.
