Summary/Abstract: This article focuses mainly on iconographic politics of the Missul circle with regard to the heritage of the national poet Botev. I put forward four theses starting from the categorical emancipation of the poet Botev from his revolutionary profile, made precisely by the leading theoretician of the circle Dr. Kristev. The observation that Botev is a poet of the present is the core statement. I consider the relationship between iconicity as a social practice and iconography as a literary-historical canonizing procedure. Although the emphasis is on iconography, I consider that this concept cannot deal with the negative attitudes of the Missul circle with regard to Botev both as poet and revolutionary.
