Abstract:

In his last novel, “The abyss. From the Notes of a Doctor” (1936) Anton Strashimirov continues to show interest in the collective stereotypes and the social preconditions that shape a person’s behavior and emotional attitudes towards the world around him/her. With its polyphony of human voices and interpretations, the work under comment intersects different, even incompatible, individual interpretations of essential aspects of existence, seeking answers to questions related to the boundaries between good and evil, freedom and coercion, sin and crime.

Keywords:

Anton Strashimirov; crime; evil; national character; war.
