Summary/Abstract: The present study is the first systematic elaboration of Geo Milev's verse. The all-round development of the poet is traced and divided into periods: from his earliest works (1910-1911) to his last and most brilliant work "September" (1924). For the first time the statistical data and the corresponding conclusions about the rhythm and metre, the rhyme schemes and stanzaic forms of Geo Milev's poetry are based not on representative surveys, but on a complete and specified corpus of 80 texts with 2614 lines. On the basis of a methodology of its own, the study reveals the specificity of Geo Milev's verse, the main characteristics of which are: polymetre, echo rhyme, etc. They distinguish Geo Milev from all previous Bulgarian poets and define him as a founder of our national "vers libre". The study includes also a few tables, rhythmograms, and a chart which all could be successfully used by future researchers of Geo Milev's poetry.
