Comment:Branislav Nušić, born Alkibijad Nuša (1864, Belgrade – 1938), was the son of Đorđe Nuša. He was a Serbian novelist of Aromanian (Cincar) descent, a playwright, satirist, essayist and a pioneer of modern rhetoric in Serbia. He graduated from the University of Belgrade's Law School and also worked as a journalist and a civil servant. Shortly after having been appointed secretary of the Ministry of Education in 1900, Nušić became the head dramaturge of the National Theatre in Belgrade. He was later appointed one of the heads of the Serbian National Theatre in Novi Sad and of the National Theater in Sarajevo. In 1913, he founded a theater in Skopje and was appointed the first post-WWI head of the Art Department at the Ministry of Education.
