Macedonia in bulgarian literature (1878 – 1989)


Nikolay Poppetrov 


The theme of Macedonia occupies an important place in Bulgarian literature. Poems, short stories, novels, dramas, essays, travelogues are devoted to it. Suffice it to mention the names of writers such as Ivan Vazov, Peyo Yavorov, Anton Strashimirov or Dimitar Talev. 

Interest in the subject, especially in the lyrics, is strongly influenced by the particular historical situation (uprisings, wars, and other extreme events). At the same time, writers born in Macedonia such as Simeon Radev, Aleksandar Balabanov, Atanas Dalchev and others play a significant role in Bulgarian literature and literary criticism. 

The article presents these two aspects. It shows the specifics of reflecting the topic in particular historical periods. Emphasis is placed on literary facts from the period between 1878 and 1944, the time when the theme of Macedonia was most authentic.
