In my master's thesis, I devoted attention to literary stories created by Marjan Rožanc and Drago Jančar. Both stories take place in the stormy period of the Second World War on the present territory of Slovenia. The comparison of the two works is focused on the view of the main characters on the Second World War. As I will show in the thesis, both writers wish to express simple love towards other people and life itself in their literary protagonists. Yet, the two literary works are different, starting from their beginnings. Marjan Rožanc displays the turbulent time of war through the eyes of a child (precisely through the eyes of himself as a child), whereas Drago Jančar presents the Second World War on the present territory of Slovenia from the perspective of five adults. Embedded within the thematic descriptions of Slovene history, a reader also encounters more personal problems of the main characters. The Second World War remains an important topic of numerous discussions, and it is important that we have an opportunity to entail it through the literary media from the lens of two excellent writers.
