What we remember very well from high school and lessons on literature is the Slovenian antithesis at the very beginning of this tragic ballad in which the narrator points to the white color of the tent of Hasan-aga, i.e., on the innocence of his loyal love, which due to the patriarchal upbringing, the jealous husband and the rules of the Qur'an must not leave the house and visit her master who "suffers from anger wounds". From the very beginning to the very end of this tragedy, we are aware of the injustice that happens to the wife and mother Hasanaginica, who is morally, mentally and physically destroyed because of the civilization in which she lives and where the male principle defines the fate of women and takes a right and role of God to decide on others life.

"Hasanaginica is the DNA of all our pain, our grief and our love. This is a true ancient tragedy placed on our premises and in our mentality, and what we have tried to do is a homage to this great drama and its endless beauty"- Jagoš Marković.
