Abstract: In their cohabitation over the centuries, Serbian and Bulgarian literature go through various forms of communication. The most long-lasting of these forms is the “specific inter-literary community”, which they build in the early Middle Ages, and which lasts until the mid-18th century. In the 19th and 20th century there is a certain estrangement; however the 1990s mark a new period of intensified  relations between Bulgarian and Serbian literature.

Key words: Serbian and Bulgarian literature, specific inter-literary community, development asymmetry, complementarity, literary communication
