Sažetak

The majority of Držić’s characters are his contemporaries, living models chosen from the local setting as an expression of his efforts to intertwine fiction with reality. By adding local colour to the plays, Držić helped the audience recognize authentic situations and persons. The records of the Criminal Court of the Republic of Dubrovnik reveal that Držić’s choice of characters was by no means random, as he tended to single out the characters whose appearance in the play would appeal most to the contemporary audience, and whose participation was to add to the credibility of other elements of his artistic message. It was this synthesis of the fictional narrative with the episodes from everyday life that was to stimulate the spectators to laughter, comedy’s ultimate goal.
