Bulgarian poet Kiril Kadiiski received the Prix Max Jacob, a prestigious French literary award, during a ceremony held at Espace Paul Ricard in Paris, the Bulgarian News Agency reported. Academie Mallarme President Jean Orizet handed the prize in the presence of Bulgaria’s Ambassador to France Marin Raikov as well as renowned French intellectuals and publishers. Prix Max Jacob was inaugurated in 1951, several years after the death of one of the best French poets of the 20th century. Kadiiski, the second non-French winner of Prix Max Jacob, received the honour for a collection of poems, translated by Sylvia Wagenstein and published in France in October 2000 by L'esprit des peninsules, with support from UNESCO.Society » Be a reporter: Write and send your article Expats.bg All Are Welcome!
