EPIDEMICS AND POWER
MetadataShow full item record
At its core, this research is focused on one of the key problems in social medicine – the government deed for preventing and stopping epidemics. Here we will not deal with the socio-historical contexts related to the occurrence of different epidemics in our country, but above all we will be interested in the problem how Bulgarian literature raises the issue of the fight against epidemics. There are several variations on “tackling epidemicsˮ in our prose, but they are individual texts which could be divided into several thematic groups according to the type of the epidemics (caused by various diseases such as plague, cholera, Typhoid Fever); sometimes these works are not related to the Bulgarian space at all (such as the epidemic of spotty typhus in “Doomed soulsˮ (“Osudeni dushiˮ by D. Dimov), and that is why we could not infer complete models and (or) trends in their reflection in artistic works.
