Danko Popović (born 1928, Arandjelovac, Serbia, Yugoslavia -died August 7, 2009) was a Serbian writer. He graduated from the University of Belgrade's Law School, where he spent the biggest part of life and where he started his literary work. Danko, however, also returned regularly to his home town and property under the Bukulja. He was the author of several novels, radio dramas, screenplays and essays.
Danko often wrote in a very tough, sincere manner and would sometimes focus on Serbian peasants and farmers and their suffering and historical value as his subject matter. One of his most famous novels, Knjiga o Milutinu (A Book about Milutin, 1985), which was translated into French, is a peasant's grim and foreboding account of Serbia during 20th century.
"The novel "Knijiga o Milutinu"... ... published in 1985... ...related the life story of a Serbian peasant who, having lived through the experience of World War and the foundation of the Yugoslav state... ...is in prison, having failed to satisfy the economic demands of the new Communist rulers."
"I pretty much tend towards a thesis, supported in particular by our writer Danko Popović, that the Serbian people has not, in fact, recovered ... biologically ... from its losses in wars. Terrible losses in the First World War and in the Balkan War..."
