Summary/Abstract: The article discusses the philosophical theory of the divinity of love. This theory has been studied according to the stories of Vasil Barnov. We are talking about two interesting studies. The first of these is "Sweet Whistle" and the second is "Flowers". According to the author, the Creator is infinite goodness and light; manifested in the form of love and beauty. Love is divine and therefore immortal; No one can fight against love because whoever fights it is doomed to fail sooner or later. Generaly beauty is material and it’s earthly but constantly strives for divine and eventually returns to Him. Although the characters in the work at first glance appear as strange people, different from the others, then the truth is understood.
