Abstract [en]

Penčo Slavejkov was nominated for the Nobel Prize in literature in 1912. In Bulgaria he is considered the most successful of all Bulgarian writers nominated for the award. On the basis of two translated documents from the Swedish Academy’s Nobel Archive – the nomination letter and the expert’s appraisal, both written by Alfred Jensen – a persistent myth has been created with a recurring theme, namely Slavejkov’s unexpected, early death as the main reason for not being one of the laureates. The reconstruction of the events in 1912, based on all relevant documents in the archive, contradicts the previously accepted position. The article argues that the myth surrounding Slavejkov’s nomination is a result of an incorrect interpretation of the annual procedure for selecting a laureate and the inaccurate translation of the two previously published documents.
