The literary work of Ivo Vojnović (1857-1929), Dubrovnik-born writer, poet and playwright, is strongly marked by the visual articulation of his descriptions but also dialogues, in which the illness motif of blindness, asthma or tuberculosis is frequently employed. Ill health and physical weakness are known to have tormented the writer in his last years, vividly described in Bolnički dnevnik (The Hospital Diary) and other writings. In addition to atherosclerosis, high blood pressure and psychological problems, deteriorating glaucoma eventually caused loss of sight. By confronting his characters with their own incapacities, frailities and illnesses, the author actually speaks of his own obsessions and fears related to disability, blindness in particular.
