HRISTO NESTOROFF AS A REAL-LIFE FRAMEWORK FOR THE FICTIONAL CHARACTER OF LAPITCH THE APPRENTICE
MetadataShow full item record
This paper is an attempt to reconstruct the extra-literary patterns of the fictional character of Lapitch the Apprentice in the novel The Brave Adventures of Lapitch by Ivana Brlić-Mažuranić. The authoress' nephew, at the time she was writing her anthological novel, was a playful five-year-old boy – Hristo Nestoroff – Bulgarian on his paternal side, who strongly motivated the writer's actual shaping of her best known literary character. The aim of the paper is to prove how the interaction between extra-literary and literary reality (also) in this case is not one-sided and one-directional.
