Summary/Abstract: In the field of enhanced intertextuality and in the aspects of the transformative poetics, a comparative analysis is made of constructs of the symbolic night poetry (night, town, music of the night town in works of Dimcho Debelyanov, Nikolay Liliev, Konstantin Konstantinov), present in Hristo Smirnenski’s poetry. The researcher’s objective is to find out: whether these elements are functioning as a matrix, which layers are activated or transformed, and which are the peculiarities of the postsymbolic transforming mechanism with Smirnenski. The article presents another point of view of the researcher towards the development processes during the third decade of the 20th century in the Bulgarian poetry – the inheritance of the symbolism and its uses.
