Summary/Abstract: The article proposes a new, “ontological”, interpretation of Pencho Slaveykov’s anthology On the Island of the Blessed. This is Slaveykov’s obsessively Nietzschean book, and hence is analyzed in terms of fundamental modes of Nietzsche’s internally changeable philosophy (transformed by Slaveykov in the anthology) such as perspective, interpretation, play, mask. The article analyzes the changeability of the Self and the subject, which is fundamental to the changeability of the universal poetic subject of the anthology, embodied by Slaveykov, who unfolds in a multiplicity of real poetical presences in the text.
