Summary/Abstract: The paper examines the aesthetic and philosophical parallel between the poetry of Alexander Vutimsky and that of Georgi Rupchev, whose powerful poetic presence illuminated the 1940s and 1980s generations. Their similarity is traced on the basis of the specific feeling of timelessness, dehumanization and futurelessness that marked the 1940s, as well as the 1960s. The paper also elucidates the tragic destiny of the two poets, and argues that the existential dramatic tension of their poetry was predetermined by the situation of writing face to face with the inevitable death. Detailed analyses of Rupchev’s emblematical poems (“The death of Tibalt”, “The road further”, “The big land”) show thematic accents and psychological characteristics similar to those of Vutimsky’s poetry, like the premonition of doom, the apocalyptical life, the feeling of predetermination and solitude, the refusal of easily acceptation of the social conventions, the marginal existence as a conscious choice.
