Bagryana

1985 QH4. Discovered 1985 Aug. 24 by V. G. Ivanova and V. G. Shkodrov at Rozhen.

Named in honor of Elisveta Bagryana {1893-1991}, the greatest Bulgarian poetess. Her lyric poetry seems to have developed outside literary schools, and she was the first in Bulgarian literature to give a bold portrait of women and their nature; her poems have been translated into more than 25 languages. Bagryana was a great admirer of astronomy; in 1984, she wrote: "Now, after outliving my 90th birthday, my only will is to see for a second time Halley's comet, whose appearance when I was 17 years old aroused my incessant thirst to reveal the mysteries of the vast Universe." Her wish was fulfilled. (M 19696)
