95th anniversary of the death of the great Bulgarian poet Peyo Yavorov

95th anniversary of the death of the great Bulgarian poet Peyo Yavorov

Peyo Yavorov (born January 1, 1878 – died October 17, 1914) was a Bulgarian Symbolist poet. He was considered to be one of the finest poetic talents in the fin de siècle Kingdom of Bulgaria.

Yavorov was a prominent member of the Misal (aka. "Thought") Group. His life and work are closely connected with the liberation movement Internal Macedonian-Adrianople Revolutionary Organization in Macedonia.

Most of his poems are romantic in subject, and dedicated to the two women in his life — Mina Todorova and Lora Karavelova. His first (and arguably greatest) love Mina died from tuberculosis, which greatly saddened Yavorov. She was buried in the Paris cemetery Père Lachaise.

It was on her grave that Yavorov met Lora, the daughter of statesman Petko Karavelov. They got married, and the letters correspondence between them was considered evidence of their ardent and vivid love, and thus different from the relationship Yavorov had with Mina Todorova.

In 1912, Lora shot herself and Yavorov tried to commit suicide. The bullet went through his temporal bone, which left him blind. In despair over the trial provoked by Lora's death and the rumor that he had killed her, Yavorov poisoned and then shot himself in autumn 1914, at the age of 36.
