Shelves: russia , bulgaria , book-list Under the Yoke, the national epic of Bulgaria, was written in and details the events of the April Uprising against the Turks, which Vazov himself took part in.

Although the Uprising failed, it did spark the war that actually won Bulgarian independence. Vazov, himself a heroic figure, was so successful because his work built Bulgarian national consciousness and pride. It helps that there was almost no secular literature in Bulgarian up to that point. However, the book does not stand the test Under the Yoke, the national epic of Bulgaria, was written in and details the events of the April Uprising against the Turks, which Vazov himself took part in.

However, the book does not stand the test of time. There are some nice descriptions of the Balkans and some funny accounts of small town life, but the plot and main characters are too formulaic and overly Romantic. I would recommend this to Bulgarians and people who hate the Turks same thing?

It is fascinating, given that we are living in times where insurrection is organised through social media, to see the sheer time and effort it once required to go from village to village organising meetings and coordinating action through messages and signals. There is a it of romance to lighten the story but it mostly gave me an insight into the passion that patriotism gives rise to.
