Slavko Grum

When Slavko Grum died in 1949 at the age of 49, he left behind a literary oeuvre that had received little attention until then: a medical practitioner, he wrote and published mainly between 1920 and 1935. His short fiction was initially published exclusively in periodicals. Of his many plays (only four have survived), two of them received public attention during his lifetime - today they are among the founding texts of 20th century Slovenian literature. He is considered the Slovenian Kafka.
