Summary/Abstract: The article investigates the relations between folklore and Yordan Stubel’s poetry. Compared to other poets writing for children who use folk patterns only incidentally, Yordan Stubel pays considerable attention to the folk artifacts integrating them on different levels in his poetic texts. Stubel’s poetry for children is characterized by being a creative realization of an essentially folk vision of the world and as such it determines the axiological paradigms and the nature of his poetical image system. Thus it enables him to represent children poetry as a microscopic model of the world in whose essence is to be found ambiguity, personification and miniaturization. Investigating the characteristics of his system of personages (animals, plants) in the article there are analyzed the changes undergone in the process of transition from oral to written poetry. The work is also an attempt to situate Yordan Stubel’s poetry as a part of the process of modelling new paradigms in child literature. There exists unquestionably a sharp differentiation between child literature and literature for adults in the 1980s and 1990s, but a new tendency also has made its growth since the beginning of 20th century. It tends to shake age differentiation and this is mainly mediated by folklore. Thus, Yordan Stubel’s contact with folklore overpasses the mere borrowing of poetic tools from the folk songs and turns to be a stable determinator of his poetic experience.
