Nikola Vaptsarov

(7 December 1909 - 23 July 1942) was a Bulgarian poet. He was born in Bansko to a Bulgarian nationalist militant father and an educated, pious Protestant mother. Trained as a machine engineer at the Machine School for the Navy in Varna, later Naval Academy, he worked blue-collar jobs most of his life and wrote in his spare time. His acclaimed book of poetry is Motoring Verses. Because of his underground communist activity against the government of Boris III, he was arrested, tried and executed by fire squad. [citation needed]

In 1949, the Bulgarian Naval Academy was renamed 'Nikola Vaptsarov Naval Academy'.

His "Selected Poems" were published in London in 1954, by Lawrence & Wishart, translated, and with a foreword by Peter Tempest.
