Macedonian literature

Macedonian literature (Macedonian: македонска книжевност) begins
with the Ohrid Literary School which was established in Ohrid (nowadays
Republic of Macedonia) in 886. These first written works in the dialects of the
Macedonian recension were religious.[1] The school was established by St.
Clement of Ohrid in the First Bulgarian Empire.[2][3] The Macedonian recension
at that time was part of the Old Church Slavonic and it didn't represent one
regional dialect but a generalized form of early eastern South Slavic.[4] The
standardization of the Macedonian language in the 20 c. provided good
ground for further development of the modern Macedonian literature and this
period is the richest one in the history of the literature itself.
The Macedonian language was not officially recognized until the
establishment of Macedonia as a constituent republic of communist
Yugoslavia in 1946. Krste Petkov Misirkov in his Za Makedonskite raboti
(1903; “In Favour of Macedonian Literary Works”) and in the literary
periodical Vardar (established 1905) helped to create the foundations of
ethnic Macedonian language and literature. These efforts were continued
after World War I by Kosta Racin, who wrote mainly poetry in Macedonian and
propagated its use through the literary journals of the 1930s. Racin's poems
in Beli mugri (1939; White Dawns), which include many elements of oral folk
poetry, were prohibited by the government of pre-World War II Yugoslavia
because of their realistic and powerful portrayal of the exploited and
impoverished Macedonian people.[citation needed] Some writers, such as Kole
Nedelkovski, worked and published abroad because of political pressure.
The Macedonian Academy of Sciences and Arts divides Macedonian literature
into three large periods, which are subdivided into additional ones. The
periods of the Macedonian literature are:[5][6]

Old Macedonian literature[7] - 9th to 18th centuries
