This thesis deals with two novels by the Serbian writer Momo Kapor, Beleške jedne Ane (1976) und Ivana (2001), from the perspective of gender studies and feminist critique by applying the method of feminist narrative theory. Based on the novels in question featuring female protagonists, Kapor will be viewed as a “female writer” in a double sense. On the one hand, the term refers to representatives of womens writing (écriture féminine) which promotes “otherness” and is positioned in contrast to masculine discourse, and on the other hand, it relates to authors of popular fiction directed at a female audience. A focus will be placed on the construction of female characters in the context of societal stereotypes, issues of female sexuality and emotions under consideration of “feminine” and “masculine” (literary) traditions. While Beleške jedne Ane is characterized by Kapors use of a first-person narrative, an excursive and fragmentary text structure as well as jargon as elements of resistance against “masculine” language, Ivana is mostly written in third person, using standard language. Furthermore Beleške jedne Ane stands out due to its fresh approach to gender studies as well as its innovative use of language, whereas Ivana features patriarchal discourse and a certain degree of triviality. A look at the further development of Kapors poetology allows the conclusion that the author is following major tendencies in Serbian womens literature. This thesis does not only show the development of one author on gender issues, but also significant changes of gender roles and the status of women in Serbian literature of the 20th/ 21st century.
