Summary/Abstract: The article, part from a more signicant study, examines Ivan Tsanev's poetry from the second half of 1960's and the beginning of 70's, as a central space in the Bulgarian lyric tradition of 20th century where various traditions meet and interfuse and through this synthesis would be fertilizing the young poetry of 80's. Accent is put on the dialectical way in which the poetry of Ivan Tsanev shows both of the modern poetic of the so-called 'April poetry' and a philosophical counter modernism through a natural and infantile mentality. Within the framework of this synthesis there is a well -grounded thesis that names Iv. Tsanev is a precursor of the Zen-consciousness in the Bulgarian poetry.
