| 41 DAVIČO’S “HANA” FROM VRAČAR At 4 Hadži Prodanova Street, in a four-storey socio-realist building that has a facade of red brick mixed with concrete, Oskar Davičo (1909 - 1989) smoked 100 cigarettes a day, cheered for Partizan and, of course, wrote poems and prose. The greyness of the building is broken up by arti cial ivy on one of the windows. Anyone preparing to ring the intercom will come across a reminder of the life of this great poet. Although Davičo is mostly remembered for ‘Hana’, ‘Serbia’ and other verses, in 1952 he published the novel ‘Poem’ (Pesma), in which he uses the experiences of his heroes to describe the occupied Belgrade of WWII. The following dialogue is taken from this work: “I love Belgrade!” - says Mića. - I love it too. It’s somehow strange. I love Belgrade, I love it helplessly, I can’t hug it, can’t kiss it, nor can I even give it sweets. So I feel sorry for it. I’m incapable of doing anything for it. I can give it nothing. And I feel like: I could, but I’m not capable... DAVIČOVA HANA SA VRAČARA U Hadži Prodanovoj 4, u četvorospratnoj socrealističkoj zgradi, na čijem se licu crvena cigla meša sa betonom, Oskar Davičo (1909–1989) pušio je sto cigareta dnevno, navijao za Partizan i, naravno, pisao pesme i prozu. Sivilo zgrade razbija veštački bršljan na jednom od prozora. Svako ko se sprema da zazvoni na interfon, sudariće se sa podsetnikom na život ovog velikog pesnika. Iako Daviča uglavnom pamtimo po Hani , Srbiji i drugim poemama, on je 1952. objavio roman Pesma u kom kroz doživljaje svojih junaka opisuje život u okupiranom Beogradu. Iz tog ostvarenja je i sledeći dijalog: „Ja volim Beograd!“, reče Mića. „I ja ga volim. Nekako čudno. Beograd volim, nemoćno ga volim, ne mogu da ga zagrlim, ne mogu da ga poljubim, ni da mu dam bombone ne mogu. Pa mi ga je žao. Ništa mu ne umem. Ništa da mu dam. A osećam: mogla bih, a ne umem...“ Davičo Os a Jakšić Đ ra NAJČUVENIJI SKADARLIJSKI BOEM Pesnik i slikar Đura Jakšić (1832–1878) poslednje je godine života proveo u Skadarskoj 34, a svi koji su ikada kročili u prelepu Skadarliju to već dobro znaju. Da svrate u prizemnu belo-plavu kuću, prolaznike poziva i bronzana figura pesnika i najpoznatijeg boema i gosta obližnjih kafana. Kuća danas služi kao izložbeni, kulturni i edukativni prostor u kojem se odvijaju različite promocije, manifestacije i predavanja. Mali sobni klavir nekada odjekne kroz prozor i na kamenu se sudari sa tamburom i violinom pobeglim iz kafane. Ova kuća primer je kako Beograd treba da se odnosi prema zaslužnim građanima Srbije. THE MOST FAMOUS BOHEMIAN OF SKADARLIJA Poet and painter Đura Jakšić (1832-1878) spent the last years of his life at 34 Skadarska Street, and that’s already well-known to everyone who’s ever set foot in the beautiful Skadarlija bohemian quarter. Inviting passers-by to visit the white and blue single-storey house there is the bronze gure of this poet and most famous bohemian and regular guest of the nearby taverns. The house today serves as an exhibition centre and cultural and educational space, hosting various promotions, events and lectures. A small lounge piano sometimes echoes through the window and collides on the cobblestones with the tamburice music and violin sounds escaping from the taverns. This house is an example of how Belgrade should treat the deserving citizens of Serbia.
