Summary/Abstract: The paper discusses the curriculum in teaching literature from Bulgarian Renaissance to the beginning of the 21st century. It traces the various stages of the inclusion of works of German authors in Bulgarian schools. In the early 20th century bad translations were used, which were without artistic value, made through an intermediary language - Russian. In the study of texts there was lexical and stylistic analysis, from which students acquire a radically different understanding of the style of the author, since the translation has no connection to the original. The proposed review introduces us to a paradox. When in Bulgarian education there were not enough translations, and the existing were too spoiled, German authors were presented better in the Bulgarian school, and now - after having created a truly unique significant translations from German writers, poets and philosophers - none of them is accessible to our students.
