Summary/Abstract: Edvin Sugarev’s article “The figure of Death in Iavorov’s Poetry” examines the polyphonic meanings of the“death” concept in Iavorov’s poetry - the existence of death as a “terrible ghost” as well as a universal creative force ,understood as a “beginning” of everything - life itself being seen as its dream.In this extremely broad spectrum the article interprets the visions of death in poems such as “Death”,”Masque”,”Song of my Songs”,”Night” and others by defending the thesis of the existential connotation of concepts such as death,night,loneliness,blindness and others in the context of thinking that is closer to Eastern philosophies and untypical for Bulgarian traditions.
