Josip Jurčič

Josip Jurčič (4 March 1844 – 3 May 1881) was a Slovene writer and journalist. He was born in Muljava, Austrian Empire (now part of the municipapity of Ivančna Gorica, Slovenia) and died in Ljubljana, Austria-Hungary. Josip Jurčič followed the literary program proposed by Fran Levstik and was one of the most influential Slovene literary realists.
