About this Item

Title

  • Bulgarian Folk Songs.

Summary

  • Bulgarian Folk Songs is the most important National Revival-era compilation of Bulgarian folk material. Gathered and edited by Dimitrii Miladinov (1810--62) and his brother Konstantin (1830--62), the work contains folk songs, riddles, games, and proverbs from both the western and eastern parts of Bulgaria. The Miladinovs were born in Struga (in present-day Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia) in what was then the Ottoman Empire. With its 665 songs, Bulgarian Folk Songs had a strong influence on Bulgarian literature and culture as well as on the development of Slavic folklore studies as an academic discipline. The brothers were arrested for allegedly spreading pan-Slavist ideas in the Ottoman Empire, and both died of typhus in 1862 while imprisoned in Constantinople (present-day Istanbul). Both Bulgaria and FYROM claim the Miladinovs as important national literary figures.
