Dimcho Debelyanov (Bulgarian) (28 March 1887 - 2 October 1916) was a Bulgarian poet and author whose death in the First World War cut off his promising literary career. Born to a prosperous family in Koprivshtitsa, Bulgaria, he experienced hardship upon the death of his father in 1896, which necessitated the family moving to Plovdiv, and then onto Sofia in 1904. Debelyanov always spoke of the eight years in Plovdiv with regret, calling it "the sorrowful city".
