Summary/Abstract: Emanuil Popdimitrov’s predestinate, passionate relationship to his homeland which had remained outside of Bulgaria’s boundaries, to the beautiful scenery of Kraiste, is a well-known fact. His poems „The Girl from Borderlands“and „Gruinska River“ are among his works that are regularly includedin anthologies. However, the composition that presents the most complete imagined picture of his native land, the idyllic poem „Svetla“, has been forgotten,unknown to the present-day readers. In this poem, Popdimitrov’s birthplace is recreated, called to mind, analyzed, its very beginnings are being evoked.
