Abstract

The paper discusses the short stories in Nada Iveljic’s Šestinski kišobran, and
focuses on fairytale motifs that can be subdivided into four categories: tale structure, the
existence of two opposing worlds, human values and ethics, magical objects, words,
transformations and secrets; as well as on heritage motifs presented in the paper ’from
East to West, and to the far South of Croatia’: national oral heritage, legends, anecdotes,
folk beliefs, national customs and old crafts, products and handicrafts, and specific
geographical features. Nada Iveljic is one of the founders of modern fairytales, i.e.
fairytale elements in children’s prose in the late 20th century. The author received the
Grigor Vitez Award for this book, which reinforces her status and popularity in Croatian
literature.
