“Literary Links of Matica Srpska” is an English language publication of the Matica srpska founded in 2017. Valuable literary works of Serbian literature ought to be presented in a great variety of ways, thereby recognising different types of foreign readers the journal addresses as its target group. Such readers and their expectations should not be pandered rather a genuine creative dialogue should be established, based on a strong critical discourse. Hence, this journal highlights the ability to realise the diversity of the Serbian literature, the specifics of individual poetics and cultural codes, their valuable stratification and the generational and regional spans which are happily integrated within the unity of the Serbian literature.
Similarly to the concept of the “Letopis Matice srpske” Chronicle, the oldest European active literary journal founded as early as 1824, this journal contains the “Poetry and Fiction” column, whose texts depict the leading Serbian poets and prose writers. In the “Mirrors” column, the selected texts express the preparedness to face open questions and the specifics of Serbian culture, and the theoretically and methodologically innovative approaches to Serbian literature and culture. The “Testimonies” column presents various texts which indicate the specifics of the functioning of the Serbian literature in the social and cultural contexts. In addition, the short and precise texts in the “Review” column provide a review of a dozen of books which would be important to recommend to a foreign reader within the yearly output.
Each issue features around twenty different authors. Although of primarily literary character, the journal also handles the general matters of history, language, literature and similar disciplines. Therefore, the contributing authors are the eminent experts in these fields. On the other hand, the journal also provides an opportunity to young authors, who by means of their featured texts take their first steps in the world of science, literature, culture and art.
