Summary/Abstract: “Hudozhnik” Magazine is examined both as an entire artificial fact and according to the spirit of the critical period of 19th-20th century – the Gesamtkunstwerk. Captured here is how the spontaneous genre disruption is spread over the pages, the accent is on the aesthetic and unrepresentative prose. If poetry resembles actual philosophical and lyric standards, prose keeps its distance from the indiscreet individual norm, removing the fence of its own sensitively stereotyped decadent language. The finds in these not so talented readings do not deal just with criticism: the only mono Nietzsche hero is slightly removed by the person of the moods, of the mind status, of the so called Stimmungsmensch – the appearance of whom establishes new philosophical paradigma – the philosophy of life, die Lebensphilosophie. The sensuousness, the body, the subconscious, “it” (es) – these are categories schematically announced in the “Hudozhnik” prose since the beginning of the 20th century, i.e. in the period before the Wars. Having understood the sense and showing it like a discussion and a correction of Nietzsche’s principles famous on our territory, the prose of writers like Ivan Yotov, S.D.Chakalov and Raicho Raichev, the Homo Novus might be defined as a new tendency, anticipation of the aesthetical researches and processes of the 1920s. In fact, the finds and pathos are entirely harmonious with the European late 19th and early 20th century – the strengthening of Freud’s and Bergson’s conceptions and the destructive role against the old Nietzsche ones.
