Abstract

This article offers a (possible) "female" reading of the cultural category "female mentality" in the story "The Dead Man's Wife" by Bora Stankovic. Through the "isolation" of the so-called "Elements of tradition" concerning the understanding of "feminine", along with traditional and patriarchal view of females in general as offered in this extraordinary text, we make an attempt to see the mentality and identity of the woman on the our Balkans. We have no higher ambition than an attempt to "see" gender, female identity through our subjective prism, but also to recognize and note the changes made by time, people and society in the meantime.
