Josip Kekez (University of Zagreb) of the Republic of Croatia is a professor of oral literature, who has published a good number of studies in that area. His edition and discussion of the important bugarštica, or bugaršćica, ballad genre, published in 1978, has been enlarged in a more recent edition and is certain to stimulate further discussion of this crucial milestone in the history of South Slavic folk poetry.
