The world as a will for a song or the Modernism of Petko Y. Todorov
Светът като воля за песен или Модернизмът на Петко Ю.Тодоров
Petko Y. Todorov (1879—1916) was a Bulgarian writer, journalist, dramatist, poet and critic. He is cited as the originator of the Romantic short story in Bulgaria although this is true only for his earlier texts because he soon progressed to deeper and newer psychological observations and experimental techniques such as interior monologue. As part of the intellectual circle "Misal" (Thought) he worked along some of the greatest Bulgarian writers of the late 19th and early 20th century, such as Pencho Slaveykov and Peyo Yavorov who were his close friends. Together they put a considerable effort to modernize Bulgarian literature through contemporary philosophic, ethic and aesthetic ideas and are cited as the originators of modernism in the country; they are also associated with philosophical individualism.
