Abstract:Finally, this dissertation helps resurrect from oblivion of an entire generation of non-leftist interwar intellectuals, who were purged from national and cultural memory after WWII. By focusing on the way in which these writers, their associates and friends negotiated social expectations of service to the nation with personal career decisions, material demands and aesthetic and political inclinations, it casts new light on the political and social history of this dynamic period. "Writers of the Nation," therefore, seeks to contribute to a better understanding of the intellectual, cultural and social trends in interwar, wartime and postwar Bulgaria and Eastern Europe.
