Summary/Abstract: Extremely delicate, well-trained and fine man, Nikola Georgiev is an unspoken polemist in the field of science: a rebel who crashes systems. The critic in science directly or indirectly deals with methodological problems; the scholar creates an interpretative context of new literary works and discourages established hierarchies in the literary canon. Nikola Georgiev de-concentrates every routine, and with an infinitely rich rhetorical instrumentation covers the range of almost all forms of speech - from sharp sarcasm and subtle irony to schizophrenic severity and metaphysical reflexivity, thus indicating the limitations and risks of any talk, writing, and theoretical style of literature that deviates from rationality and faith in the social, cultural and human sense of literary science. Nikola Georgiev's work should be published and studied over and over again and this is the reason why he published this book in two volumes. The first includes both the published and unreleased works of the author. He could not reach all that we would like: the volume would have disturbed even the most daring reader. – Sava Savchev
