Ivo Andri (AHN-dreech) began his writing career with two volumes of poems in 1918 and 1920 and continued to publish poetry in magazines throughout his life. During the 1920’s and 1930’s, he published several volumes of short stories and brought out a fourth volume in 1948. His essay “Conversations with Goya” (1934) sets out his creed as a writer and a humanist. Between 1945 and his death in 1975, he also published essays on various philosophical, aesthetic, and literary subjects. A selection of his short stories from all periods of his career, The Pasha’s Concubine, and Other Tales, was published in English in 1968.
