Theme of this paper covers the time period from 1870, when Serbian literature in Kosovo and Metohija was constructed. The year of 1871 is especially important when Theological-teachers’ school, Prizren seminary, was founded, the first secondary school in this area. This school educated famous teachers and priests, writers and cultural workers, some missionaries. Manojlo Djordjevic Prizrenac and Nikodim Savic stand out from that period. At the beginning of the 20th century and in the period between the two World Wars, the literary wark of the following writers was very important: Grigorije Bozovic, Zarija Popovic, Dimitrije Frtunic, Janicije Popovic, Predrag Stipsic, Stojadin Trajic … With their work they helped the literature and the reality of Kosovo and Metohija come closer to its mainstream, despite the difficult circumstances in which it was produced. Literature itself, as well as other forms of creativity, was conditioned by the social, political, economic and cultural position of Kosovo as an undeveloped part of the South, that is a part of Old Serbia. Centuries of slavery under the Turks, assimilation, isolation from the mainstream of Serbia, insufficient communication, and lack of interest in the literary world of that time made this literature stay aside. Thus, partly because of the commitment of these authors, who subordinated literary aesthetics to serving the people, the beauty of their expression to national scream, stylistic perfection to authentic patriotism and myth, this literature has remained in the sphere of patriotic chronicles.
