In Croatian literary has been relatively little writers in their literary works entered the elements of satire and humor as a special visual angle of looking at certain social events. In the 19th century there were few: Stanko Vraz, Anthony Kovacic and Sylvia Strahimir Kranjčević written several successful satirical works, and humor elements are found occasionally in the works of Janko Jurkovic, William Korajca, Augusta Senoe and Joseph Eugen Tomic. And that's all. In fact, until the appearance of Slavko Kolar (1891-1963), and we can not talk about a writer whose entire literary work was imbued with exclusive categories of humor and satire. And precisely in this attribute in the Croatian Kolar international literature stands as a completely original literary phenomenon: even though the themes of his stories completely fit into those major trends of Croatian literature thirties, when the primary preoccupation of writers caught the problem of villages or provinces with naglešenim social emphasis, Kolar from the rest of his contemporaries distinguished precisely by their specific approach that the same issues.
