Melita mely Ratkovic: “I love literature, even as a child…”

Επιμέλεια συνέντευξης: Εύα Πετροπούλου Λιανού

Please share your thoughts on the future of literature. I love literature, even as a child, according to my age, I was the most active member of the Library, absorbing the smell of the books on the stacked shelves.  Books are available to everyone, unfortunately, there is less and less future for literature. Although there is no better way than reading a book, without skipping pages, modern technology has suppressed the true value of the book. No film can replace the real experience created between the writer and the reader.

When do you start writing? I started writing very early since childhood.

Good and bad. Who wins today? Today, values in society are completely different from those of our youth. People are alienated, the family as the basic pillar of society is losing its meaning. Either way, we’re all at a loss. We strive for dubious material values, we replace real life with a virtual one. The children are left to their own devices bad influences, everything boils down to gross materialism, unfortunately such is the time.  We cannot ignore technique, which makes it easier all forms of communication, one gets the impression that we are living in a virtual reality, which speaks in favor of the fact that we are entering the sphere of life, outside of all spiritual values. I wish I was wrong, I don’t know what the future holds.

How many books have you written? And where can we find your books? As for books, I am represented in various world anthologies. Due to the collapse of my country Yugoslavia, I share the fate of people exiled by the war, whose life path was survival, their wishes unfulfilled, I was not able to realize one of my greatest wish, in other words, I lacked material support to make it come true.

The book. E book or hardcover book? What will the future be? In the future, according to possibilities.  It would be an E book,

Wish for 2023 To stop war, anywhere in the world, to turn to spiritual values, deified and enlightened, without religious and national divisions. If people knew the true value of universal cosmic love, they would return to the true values of life.
