Aleksa Santic (1868 - 1924) was a Serbian poet and academician, born in Mostar, where he spent most of his life and poetry creativity. Having lived in a merchant family, the people did not have enough understanding for his talent. He graduated in the trade school in Trieste and Ljubljana, then returned to Mostar. He was «in the beginning rather withdrawn,» he took care of books in his father’s shop and read «the papers and books he could find in Mostar». A few years later he began his literary and social work.
