Bay Ganyo

Bay Ganyo is a fictional character created by Bulgarian author Aleko Konstantinov (1863–1897). He is at present considered an exemplary image of an anti-hero: uneducated, ignorant, egoistic and poor villager. Sometimes perceived as a stereotype of the uneducated, profit-driven Bulgarian and indeed the average Balkan person, he is often seen merely as a social stereotype, a member of the Principality of Bulgaria's newly formed lower middle-class.
