Summary/Abstract: The text is focused on some characteristics of Nikolay Liliev's critical-essayistic prose - its dialogue with the author's fiction and the projection of the self in it, as well as its dialogue with the French stylistic tradition. Emphasized is Liliev's role as an enlightener and spiritual mediator, as a successor and proficient interpretator of West-European Modernism. Despite their receptive-interpretative character and the collage citation of foreign authors, a number of early articles, portraits, and essays of Liliev on modern West-European writers function as manifestoes of Bulgarian Modernism. The paper also examines the critical-essayistic texts of Liliev on Bulgarian writers and underlines the author's heuristic spirit and his portraitist skills. Taken into consideration are Liliev's late academical studies on Russian and West-European classics in regard to the literary and theatrical reception of those authors in Bulgaria.
