Summary/Abstract: Review of the book of Boyka Ilieva “The inspiration Italy. Literary contexts 1878-1918”. Blagoevgrad: South-West University Press, 2019, 253 p., ISBN 978-954-00-0188-3. The current study focuses on the Italian presence and influence on the Bulgarian literature in the period from the National Liberation to the end of the World War I. It aims at extending and enriching the existing knowledge about the problem. The fixed period of 40 years is intriguing and tempting to be studied, as it is clearly indicative of the tendencies in the Bulgarian cultural environment.
