Tommaseo’s sea voyage along the coast towards his home town Šibenik in late 1839, and his first visit to Dubrovnik, opened new horizons for this forty year old writer, who had matured in the atmosphere of other cultures. His numerous creative contacts with Dubrovnik citizens, Croatian poetry by the old Dubrovnik poets, and the Croatian vernacular spoken in the streets of Dubrovnik and in the homes of its gentry, inspired his first work in Croatian, written one month after his return from Dubrovnik.
