Sažetak

Ljubomir Marakovic (1887-1959), an important Croatian literary critic, who wrote mainly
between the two World Wars, perceived literature within the frameworks of the so-
called modern objectivism. Since English literature and culture of the time were becoming
increasingly interesting, Marakovic published 39 articles and introductions and gave several public lectures on English writers, mainly contemporaries. The Croatian comparative literature scholar, a theoretician, used his preoccupation with John Galsworthy and The Forsyte Saga to create a binary opposition, Dingkunst vs. Bewufitsein- skunst, juxtaposing Galsworthy’s literature and the work of, e.g., Virginia Woolf and James Joyce. Among the older writers, Marakovic was primarily interested in Lord Byron and sir Walter Scott, and among his contemporaries those who suited his explicit Catholic beliefs and interpretations. These are, apart from Galsworthy, Aldous Huxley, Robert Hugh Benson, whom he admired greatly, Gilbert Keith Chesterton, John Henry Newman and Florence Louise Barclay, whose novels Marakovic, both translated and published. Marakovic is one of the foremost Croatian comparative literature pioneer scholars, with a special interest in English literature.
