Keywords: Elin Pelin; Bulgarian literature; analysys

Summary/Abstract: The book presents a ground-breaking reading of a classical Bulgarian author who has been mostly neglected by theoreticians in recent decades. Kolarov’s approach demonstrates his capacity to work with all registers of the literary text, which has marked his writing ever since Sound and Sense (1983). By closely following the transformative effects of the material aspects of fiction, he innovatively opens his analyses to the conceptual “transmodalities” between philosophy and other spheres of the humanities, while remaining sensitive to facets of social and political engagement. After Kolarov’s reading, Elin Pelin will never be the same.
