"Bulgarian Literature from the Liberation to the World War I" is a book that grew out of lectures of prof. Milena Kirova at Sofia University. Its content is based on the program of Bulgarian Philology students and is tailored to their needs and cognitive abilities. At the same time, this is a book that can introduce a wide range of readers to the history and problems of Bulgarian literature. It uses a large amount of factual information, represents not only the classical authors and works, but also less well-known, even forgotten authors. All observations and analyzes are based on specific historical processes.
Part 1 covers (as far as it is possible to put some limit) between the Liberation and the first years of the 20th century, or until the early modernism. Such authors as Zahari Stoyanov, Ivan Vazov and Aleko Konstantinov are presented.
