By describing the oldest known oral rhetorical genres, the paper analyzes how they interfered with the genres of Croatian written literature from the medieval times up to the Croatian National Revival. Rhetorical genres of oral literature are genres whose aesthetic is also a means of achieving specific communication goals by accentuating their persuasiveness and ludic language. All typical basic and hybrid oral rhetorical genres have been confirmed in transcriptions in the period from the Middle Ages to the Croatian National Revival, which demonstrates a certain stability of the generic system. Even though they are considered to be literary microstructures, oral rhetorical genres have contributed to their textual hosts by adding to their persuasiveness and orality, thus confirming a continuous interplay of Croatian oral and written literature from the Middle Ages up to the present times.
