(1886–1958), Slovenian writer, art historian, critic and diplomat.
His best known literary work is the essayistic novel From the Road, written in the form of a travel diary.
The narrative text is intertwined with dialogues between the main protagonists (the narrator and his friend Fritz),
which illustrate the ideological, philosophical and aesthetic dilemmas from the
fin de siècle.
Cankar published the novel twice: originally in the periodical Dom in svet (Home and World) in 1913, followed by a revised book edition in 1919.
On the basis of a detailed comparison the digital edition shows and explains the differences between the 1913 and 1919 editions.
The digital edition presents both versions of the novel and their comparison.
The commentaries explain the editorial principles of the digital edition and the character of Cankar's changes for the second edition of the novel,
the significance of the works of art in both versions of the novel, and aspects of the digital encoding of the text.
