Summary/Abstract: Based on unpublished archive materials, the study deals with the topic of the so-called “Karjiev case”, which, without leaving any important traces in the humanitarian ideas in Bulgaria, is one of the indicators of the forthcoming “humanitarian fever” and without which its ethnology could hardly be explained. The extrapolation of the not quite definitive “Beron’s complex” to the metaliterary practice in Bulgaria from the beginning of the 20th century up to the late 1940s aims at the metaphorical strengthening of our idea about the fateful, but not quite logical, difference between the literary language and the language of its conception. It prompts at the idea that the inventive “uniformity” between them, based on native accumulation, could only be seen in the 1960s and the role of people like Krum Karjiev is particularly important from a historical point of view.
