Summary/Abstract: The article deals with the intertextual relations between Pencho Slaveykov’s lyrical book entitled “Dream of happiness” (1907) and two anthologies of his: “On the Isle of the Blessed” (1910) and “German Poets” (1911). The former presents imaginary poets whose poems were written by Slaveykov himself. The latter is a real anthology of German poetry from Goethe to Slaveykov’s time, translated by Slaveykov himself. Some of the poets presented in the two anthologies were real lyricists. We can find significant resemblances between their poems and Slaveykov’s lyrical book “Dream of happiness”. The paper makes an attempt at tracing those resemblances in order to realize Slaveykov’s concept of lyrics.
