Europe in Asen Raztzvetnikov’s Lyric Poetry

Summary/Abstract: The life and the works of Asen Raztzvetnikov testify to a person who is deeply rooted in the nativeness and widely open to the civilization that we call European. The relations engendered by this openness are the result of the natural penetration of elements which construct the European cultural field; they are genetic because the author is a product of that field, and secondary, as far as he consciously adopts influences and revises them in his own way. Being subjective by nature and objective of necessity, this revision bears the stamp of a unique individuality, which is bound by the social characterization of his creative environment’s national tradition. The image of Europe in Asen Raztzvetnikov’s Lyric Poetry is a small part of the hard distinguishable situation of his purposeful and unconscious communication with the West. During the period that comes to an end with the publishing of „Mountain Eves“ (in the mid 1930s) this image gets formed and completed as a sign with a substantial view of life significance.
