Serbian poet, novelist and historian Milorad Pavic died on Monday of heart failure at the age of 80.
Pavic, whose works have been translated into several languages, is known for his experiments with narrative form. Among his novels, one can be read back to front, and one has several alternative endings.
His most widely read work is The Dictionary of the Khazars, published in 1984.
Pavic spoke Russian, German, French and several ancient languages. He translated Alexander Pushkin and Lord Byron into Serbian.
