In a kind of interspace of authorial memory, between memory and oblivion, figures of memory and various mnemonic mechanisms, a literary text is constructed in which the town is an important structural factor. The town is the scene of events, however, thanks to its complexity
and dynamics, it is also the cause of many internal processes that take place in the individual, the town, particularly in realistic works, is often the culprit for the unlucky fate of many heroes, the
town is a symbol of the preservation of identity and a struggle against devastation, destruction and hatred. The 19th century, marked by the penetration of new ideas and significant economic development in economic branches, had a great influence on the development of towns. Local trade was expanding into an increasingly diversified commercial economy, whereby industrial complexes covered most of the urban areas. Towns developed, old houses were renovated, city municipalities gained their own town halls, and public cultural and social institutions became more numerous. All those characteristics of the life of small Croatian towns such as Senj gained a different flavour through the writer’s eye insofar as he had the ability to rise above the small-town
everyday life in which he lives and to constantly observe his fellow citizens and their limited life with a critical eye.
However, Novak was not only an observer and realist, although literary criticism appreciates most of his works in which he gave a critical picture of the small-town environment, primarily Senj, but he was contemplative in nature, with a focus also on observing human destinies, whilst
the environment and social conditions interested him more as a framework. The limits of his realism should be also sought in his characteristics, he usually writes about a narrow and spatially
limited environment, however, the roots of this will be more in his tendency to fully penetrate into the life of the individual, a small man.
