- When: November 24, 2015, 19:00 – 21:00
Presentation of the book Půlnoční history (Midnight Stories) (Euroslavica 2014), an anthology of prose from Bulgarian Diabolism, a unique offshoot of European Expression.
“Exotic” Bulgarian literature and shared melting pots: the shadow of Franz Kafka, the mysticism of Gustav Meyrink, cursed poets, the absurd plays of Václav Havel… Zlatina Jeřábková will discuss the poetics of the texts. The anthology is the first to present to Czech readers the literary work of four avant-garde writers: Svetoslav Minkov, Vladimir Poljanov, Čavdar Mutafov and Georgi Rajčev.
The initiators of the project and editors of the publication – Ginka Bakărdžieva, Marcel Černý and Vladimír Kříž – will take part in the event, while the book will be presented by the ambassador of the Republic of Bulgarian, Lačezar Petkov.
The evening is taking place in cooperation with the Bulgarian Cultural Institute in Prague.
