Although Marin Zlatarić is reckoned a minor Ragusan poet from the end of the 18th century, his oeuvre is relatively ample and intriguing because of its thematic, generic and metrical features but also due to the “Slovinian” language which it propagates. Since the major part of Zlatarić’s oeuvre has not yet been scrutinized by literary scholars, this paper will describe his works written in Croatian language from the perspective of the amusing vs. serious dichotomy. First part of the paper will highlight Zlatarić’s works which disclose characteristics of a high literary style and represent their author as an erudite and an admirer of the old Ragusan poets. Second part will be dedicated to Zlatarić’s occasional, humorous and ludicrous poems which can be attributed to the sphere of banal, trivial and low literary style.
