THE ROLE OF MILADINOVCI BROTHERS IN THE DEVELOPMENT FOLKLORISTIC IN MACEDONIA
Collection of folklore and the consciousness about the national language and life are the foundations over which the platform for development of the nationally – cultural renascence is being built, not only in Macedonia, but all over Europe. The work of Miladinovci brothers regarding collection and publication of folklore materials also takes place in this frame. Undoubtedly, the work of Miladinovci brothers played an irregularly noticeable role in the development of Macedonian culture. In the years following the release of the Collection a large number of authors took up collecting and publicizing folklore materials: P. Zografski, R. Zinzifov, G. Prlicev, K. Shapkarev. In this context, it can be stated that the collecting of folklore poetry represents an important appearance for the national development in most of the cultural ambiences, and in that context, also in ours. In Macedonia, as well as in most Slavic ambiences the touch with folklore at the same time represents what from today’s perspective can be called affirmation of the own nationality, and with that helps discover new treasuries of life and art whose goal is to excite national consciousness. Therefore, it can be assessed that the texts of songs and descriptions of celebrations aren’t the only thing we inherited form the Miladinovci brothers, but also the ideas which are crucial for the development of folkloristic.
