Finds: February 2, 2014

How could you not love the fact that the website of Radio Bulgaria runs a series of English-language blog posts called Intense Literature? This particular entry focuses on three important poets who were dead by age 30 - Dimcho Debelyanov, Hristo Smirnenski, Geo Milev. Nor are they the only early casualties in Bulgarian literature - one could add Hristo Botev (28), Peyo Yavorov (37), Petko Todorov (37), Nikola Vaptsarov (32). It's not just intense being a gifted Bulgarian writer - apparently, it's lethal!
