Branko Radicevic (1824-53).
In his poetry Branko gave expression to simple emotions such as joy on a sunny morning or in a fishing boat, pleasure derived from flowers, the exuberance of school youth, patriotic fervor, and love's joys and sorrows. His youthful zeal is also expressed in unabashed eroticism and in the exultation of wine, women, and song. More importantly, he was the first to write poetry in the simple language of the common people. He attempted to recreate the rhythm of the folk song, thus supporting the belief of Karadzic that even poetry can be written in the language of peasants and shepherds.
Among his best poems are: Daaki rastanak (The Parting of School-friends), Put (A Journey), Tuga i opomena (Sadness and Warning), and Kad mlidijah umreti.
