Silvije Strahimir Kranjčević (1865-1908) was a notable poet of the late nineteenth and early twentieth century. He spent most of his active life in Bosnia and Herzegovina where he wrote his mature verse. His father, Spirdion Kraincevic, was a clerk. Kranjčević began to write poetry at high school. He studied Theology at the Collegium Germanico- Hungariicum in Rome but after six months returns to Zagreb, did one year diploma at the teacher training college and, unable to get a job in Zagreb because of the political situation, went as school master to Bosnia serving in Mostar, Livno (2886), Bijeljina, Livno again and finally Sarajevo.
