Abstract:

Bulgarian writers who settled in Argentina in the 1920s formed friendly and literary connections which continued across the Оcean. Such is the case of the well-known author Boris Shivachev (1902–1932), “the first Bulgarian Hispanist”, and Stoyan Danev (1901–1981), a far less known publicist in Bulgarian and Spanish and author of stories in Spanish. There is much less information about the latter and his relations with Shivachev than, for example, about Shivachev and Samuil Strezov (1901–1984). By publishing and studying an unknown letter from Danev to Shivachev – from 1928 – and a dedication by Danev from 1931, we prove the regularity of correspondence between the two old friends and the fact that they informed each other about their literary undertakings and life vicissitudes.

Keywords:

Bulgarian Literature in Argentina, Hispano-Bulgarian Cultural Links, Boris Shivachev (1902– 1932), Stoyan Danev (1901–1981)
