Summary/Abstract: This book examines the main plots in Bulgarian literature of 18th and 19th centuries through which the Bulgarians were building and still build their self-image and their mental maps. These plots and the main figures in them formed one relatively homogeneous mythical structure, presented in the literature. From this perspective, this study examines key tests in the national canon, from Paisius of Hilendar to Ivan Vasov and beyond.
