Andrija Kačić-Miošić (1704?–1760)

Kačić-Miošić, Andrija (kä-chich-mē-ō-shich). A Croatian poet; born at Brist, Dalmatia, 1704?; died at Zaostrog, 1760. He performed for his country a service similar to that of Percy in his ‘Reliques’ to England, in publishing ‘Recreations of the Slavonic People’ (1756). This was an anthology of popular songs which he collected or adapted, celebrating the exploits of South-Slavic heroes from the earliest times. Many editions have appeared and it is popular to-day with the Southern Slavs.
