Mollov, Todor. The two versions of the song for the Momchil hero (structure and leading ideas) (Resume)
The most popular song of Momchil belongs to the heroic epos, but has kept the features of the myth-ritualistic complex, which also turns it in a ballad. All more important characters (the hero, his wife and sister) are situated in the epic Periphery, but they are rather in a "strong position" only in their relation with the Center (Tsarevgrad) and the figure of the King.
