Boris I is one of the most iconic and dramatic figures in Bulgarian antiquity. The great pagan khan, and later Christian prince Boris-Mihail, is the ruler who imposes Orthodoxy and the Slavic writing, sometimes with unspeakable violence, sometimes with holiness and goodness, but always forethoughtfully. These two statesmanlike acts merge Bulgarians and Slavs into a single European nation. They make Bulgaria one of the greatest and most powerful nations of their time and prefigure the Golden Age of his son - Simeon.
"A Dream about St. Boris I" is written in a language inspired by both the original historical sources and contemporary literary Bulgarian, which gives it special and original twang of an ancient chronicle.
