The article links the fictional world of Ivo Andric's novel Bosnian Chronicle to problems in literary hermeneutics as they concerti issues of dialogue and Cultural translation. The author claims that the opposition between East and West, repeatedly recalled in the characters' speech and traditionally taken to be the main theme of the novel, is actually dissolved and discarded by the novel itself. Instead, its true theme is the dynamics of human communication exemplified by the characters' attempts to understand one another and in their failure to do so, which makes Bosnian Chronicle a novel about misunderstanding.
