Summary/Abstract: In the introductory part, the article presents Kiril Hristov’s Prague archive while paying special attention to documents which are likely to upgrade or alter our perception of the poet. There is included a detailed commentary on the manuscripts “Bulgarian grammar” and “Lectures on the Bulgarian language”, which both evince Kiril Hristov’s work as a lecturer in the Bulgarian language in Prague. The poet, who can be argued to have turned his identity into an aesthetic object and the literary scandal into an aesthetic creed, assumes the long-last role of intermediary and cultural ambassador, of the one held academically responsible for drawing the portrait of “the others” – of Bulgarian poets and writers and of Bulgarian culture as an entity.
