Summary/Abstract: The paper traces three directions chosen by the author to examine the problematic relation between Pencho Slaveykov and Hristo Botev. From the viewpoint of literary history this is the first critical survey of the poet-revolutionary; furthermore, it embodies wide interpretative options - from the realistic presentation of the person and his works, to the individualistic and semantic-modernistic. That is why the author includes all existing facts preserved in Slaveykov's archive that document a certain attitude or intentions. The archive consists of notes, opinions, particular statements and plans of including Botev and his works in critical texts, as well as art projects. This whole complex is even more needed, since it corrects the prejudice established in the scholarly practice against the examined relations.
