Summary/Abstract: Love in Nikolay Liliev’s poetry is tradicionally perceived and defined as incorporeal, seraphic, narcissistic, etc. The text aims at explaining the nature and realization of love in both Liliev’s life and works. For that purpose the paper takes as a point of departure a few key phrases in Liliev’s lyric poetry that were also turned into an emblem of his life as well, and connects them to unknown and unpublished letters from the poet’s archives. Ethics, aesthetics and biographical data complicatedly interweave in the mind and sensitivity of the poet who created unique lyrical masterpieces uniting Bulgarian poetry with the spirit of European Modernism.
