Summary: For generations Croatian emigrants create literary works
inspired by the literary tradition of their mother land. This literary
production played an important role in preserving the wealth of Croatian
language. The third and the forth generation of Croatian emigrants in USA,
Canada, Australia and South America bring up writers whose works are
written bilingually or in English, French or Spanish language. The project
defines the way this literature is bound to the mother literature and how
much it is a reflection of the spirit of Croatian cultural tradition.
Special attention is given to the works of Croatian writers in exile.
Keywords: Croatian, emigrants, literature, mother land, cultural tradition, USA, Canada, Australia, South America, exile, generation, valorization, systematization, history of Croatian literature.

revalorization andsystematization of literary works of Croatian emigrants.

literature. The work on the project will result in publicating of studies
