Summary/Abstract: The article deals with the idea of the visible and invisible stairs and steps in literary texts, the ascents and descents (both literal and figurative) along the ladders of the structures and literary borders. During the years of socialism the stairs were a trivially used symbol of going up, conquering heights, an uninterrupted ascent to the highest possible political step – that of communism. Consequently, this also meant the coming of the end of history because beyond this highest level there could not be any other. In the article, this idea is revealed against the background of Flying Heroes and Wayside Dwellings in the collection of Gencho Stoev’s works “Like a swallow”.
