About her professional situation

Ana Vidović was considerably influenced by Dositej Obradović and Vuk Karadžić. Her works were, therefore, greatly influenced by folk tradition.

Apart from Serbian, she spoke Italian too. In 1841, she published her first work "Anka i Stanko" in Zadar.

She was in the editorial board of the "Zora Dalmatinska" journal between 1844 and 1849. As of 1844, she started publishing her poems in Zadar, which were accompanied with an Italian translation. She published two books in Italian: A collection of poems (1846) and an epic poem about Romulus' founding of Rome (1856).
