He was very prolific during the twenties and the thirties of the 20th century when his best works were created, such as the libretto for the opera “Ero s onoga svijeta”. It was the Vrlička česma that inspired Milan Begović and based on his libretto Jakov Gotovac composed the most popular Croatian opera “Ero s onoga svijeta”.
