A comparative study of Kaminnyi hospodar by Lesia Ukrainka (1912) and Spyrydon Cherkasenko's drama Espans'kyi kabaliero Don Khuan i Rozita (1928). According to Karpiak, Cherkasenko's treatment is "strongly inclined toward parody and satire. The blend of tragedy and irony that intensified the dramatic quality of Kaminnyi hospodar is virtually non-existent in Cherkasenko's play. Where Lesia Ukrainka had created an exponent of personal liberty who believed in giving women all that they were capable of sustaining, Cherkasenko's Don Juan stands only for self-indulgence. The hero who had for centuries symbolized not only sensuality, but also courage and revolt, is here reduced to a weak and petty scoundrel." In Karpiak's view, both of these versions are distinct and original: "Lesia Ukrainka strives to recreate the myth, to establish it firmly in Ukrainian literature; Cherkasenko seeks to debunk it..."

Hauptmann-Forschung : neue Beiträge=Hauptmann Research : new directions / Peter Sprengel and Philip Mellen, eds. Frankfurt a.M.; New York : P. Lang, 1986. (Europäische Hochschulschriften. Reihe I, Deutsche Sprache und Literatur; Bd. 890). 127-148.
Lesia Ukrainka, says A. Kipa, knew and admired the work of the German dramatist Gerhart Hauptman. She translated his play Die Weber both into Ukrainian and into Russian, discussed his work and the performances of his plays she attended in her correspondence, and wrote critical studies of Hauptmann's dramas Die Weber and Michael Kramer. She turned to Hauptmann "for inspiration and insights during her search for a mode of dramatic expression suitable to her needs." There are parallels between Hauptmann's drama Vor Sonnenaufgang and Lesia Ukrainka's Blakytna troianda and the inspiration for Lisova pisnia, according to the author's own statement, came from Hauptmann's "Märchendrama" Die versunkene Glocke. It is not a question of simple influence, says Kipa. In Hauptmann's work Lesia Ukrainka "recognized affinities to her spiritual make-up, adopted them, reshaped and enhanced them anew into a drama uniquely her own."

The critics who write about Ukrainian translations of Goethe's Faust, according to Kipa, tend to ignore the contributions made by Pavlo Hrabovs'kyi (1864-1902), a Ukrainian poet whose published work includes five excerpts from Faust, Part 1. Kipa provides an analysis of Hrabovs'kyi's translation of Gretchen's monologue beginning "Meine Ruh' ist hin".

In this three-part article, the author attempts to provide an outline of "three periods in the history of Soviet Ukrainian literature" while "bearing in mind the development of social reality, as well as of literature and aesthetics". The first period designated by him extends from 1918 to the mid-1930's, "when basic changes occurred in social and aesthetic consciousness", the second from the mid-1930's through the mid-1950's, when "creative principles of socialist realism were gaining the upper hand", and finally, the third period is that of "modern Ukrainian literature", characterized by a "deepening study of humanistic problems", "more intense analytical, psychological and philosophical delvings into all those spheres, which serves to enhance the role of the sociopolitical and scientific factors in studying the essence of man..." Kononenko notes 'the predominant synthesis of not only romantic and realistic structures, but also lyrical and epical forms and social, psychological, philosophic, national and international themes..." This synthesis, in Kononenko's view, "is explained by the authors' unprecedented attention to humanity, its self-sufficiency and uniqueness as a form, as an embodiment of the greatest value of life and art... as a phenomenon linking centuries, generations and peoples, so that even past realitites serve to shed additional light on the modern and future ones..." He sees this in poetry and prose, speaking of "the explosion of lyrical structures in prose works and the "metaphorical trend" in prose fiction. He discusses chimerical novels, epic social novels, historico-revolutionary novels, philosophical-humanistic novels, historical genres in dramas and novels, satirical, burlesque and grotesque novels and their authors, who are given brief critical assessments. The article is illustrated with portraits of Shevchenko, Franko, Ryl's'kyi, Tychyna, Sosiura, Bazhan, Drach, Pavlychko, Pidsukha, Dovzhenko, Stel'makh, Vil'de, Korniichuk and a 1955 group photograph of Malyshko, Ryl's'kyi, Bazhan, Korniichuk, and Tychyna.

Koropeckyj takes issue with Marxist critics who suggest that Shevchenko "utilized Biblical material as a means of 'heroicizing' revolutionary struggle and lending credence to his 'revolutionary' message'", as well as with Iurii Ivankin, who sees in Davydovi psalmy Shevchenko's use of 'Aesopian' language to make his work acceptable to the censor. According to Koropeckyj, in Davydovi psalmy Shevchenko "postulates a historiosophic scheme composed of three distinct moments: an ideal past (the now lost state of absolute divine justice); the corrupt world of experience (the national, social, as well as the personal oppression of the present); and a prophecy and vision for the future (the advent of brotherly harmony preceded by a violent, purifying judgment). Throughout the cycle, this movement of 'history' is perceived as a struggle for the various incarnations of wickedness with an oppressed but divinely chosen people." Such conceptions, says Koropeckyj, were widespread during the early nineteenth century throughout Western Europe, "but especially among Polish patriotic exiles with whose ideas and literature evcenko was certainly acquainted."

A749. Koscharsky, Halyna. "The poetic world of Lina Kostenko." Australian Slavonic and East European Studies. 2.1 (1988): 69-76. Biblio.
Halyna Koscharsky uses the concept of "the poetic world of the poet as writer" known as "the poetics of expressiveness", as developed in literary theory by Alexander Zholkovsky and Yury Shcheglov. Following these critics, Koscharsky defines the poetic world of an author as one that "encompasses 'all that is common to all his works and distinguishes them from those of others'..." including "the invariant themes of a poet's texts...", and "his favourite, or, perhaps, obsessive way of looking at things." In her study of Lina Kostenko's poetry, Koscharsky concentrates on three books published during the period of the political thaw in the USSR from mid-1956 to March 1963, namely Prominnia zemli (The Earth's Rays, 1957), Vitryla (Sails, 1958) and Mandrivky sertsia (Wandering Heart, 1961). Other works are mentioned only in passing. Koscharsky finds four main invariant motifs in Lina Kostenko's poetry: "1. Life and literature are a continual battle of good against evil. 2. An artist has a moral responsibility to be sincere and honest; the artist's work is worthy of promotion as a theme in itself. 3. Pain cleanses and heals, therefore painful thoughts should not be pushed aside. 4. Satire, which is intended to bring the foolish to their senses, should be combined with a sense of optimism."

Much of the conversation was about the Ukrainian language, and the pressures of Russification. Why is it important that the Ukrainian language survive, asked Kostash. Because, said Pavlychko, "when a people loses its language, it ceases to exist. Language is character, memory, personality. What is terrible is that, because a language does not die all at once, a people in the process of losing it live like cripples. With the death of the language, our ancestors die, our writers die, Shevchenko dies..." " Pavlychko is hopeful that the Ukrainian language and its literature will be re-embraced by its own people", says Kostash. With a large b/w portrait of Pavlychko.

A906. Lapica, Ray. "Shevchenko's nine Russian 'novels'." Ukrainian Quarterly. 37. 1 (Spring 1981): 25-41.
The nine novels that Shevchenko wrote in Russian are called "a literary curiosity" by the author. These works, long stories or novelettes rather than novels, were written during Shevchenko's exile and published only posthumously. Shevchenko wrote them "when his morale was at its lowest ebb", in the 1853-1857 period, "as an outlet for his depressed spirit", says Lapica. Shevchenko wrote the novels under the psudonym "Kobzar Darmogray" and made some unsuccessful efforts to have them published, says Lapica. Shevchenko made the novels available in manuscript to some of his literary friends, but they were very critical (P.Kulish said, that if he had the money, he would buy them and burn them; the Russian writer Sergei Aksakov advised against the publication of Progulka s udovol'stviem i ne bez morali as a work unworthy of Shevchenko's great poetic talent). Lapica provides brief summaries and commentaries on the nine surviving novels (originally, there were supposed to be eleven): Naimichka, Varnak, Kniaginia, Muzykant, Neschastnyi, Kapitansha, Bliznetsy, Khudozhnik, Progulka s udovol'stviem i ne bez morali. In Lapica's view, Shevchenko's novels, for the first time in Russian literature, introduce themes from Ukrainian life dealing with the Ukrainian peasantry. "The stories give the first descriptions of the Ukrainian peasant as a human being in the Western mould. We learn far more of Ukrainian life from Shevchenko's novels than we can from his poetry. Manners, customs, habits and fascinating relationships pour from his pen. He describes Ukrainian life in the 1820's to 1840's in a manner no other Ukrainian author approached." Lapica is convinced that these works "deserve immediate translation [into English] and widespread dissemination."

Among the most promising texts in this regard are liturgical composiitions..." The author reviews the theories of Roman Jakobson, Kiril Taranovsky and A.V. Pozdneev and applies the theories to specific texts. She then proceeds to "a discussion of the actual models which determine the prosodic structure of liturgical texts, and to an exploration of the role played by performance..."

The Orthodox tradition, says Lewin, "prepared its learned men for perception of the Baroque better than it had for the Renaissance." This was due to "a thorough knowledge of the Bible". "Fundamental for the use of the Bible in Orthodox school theater and drama", says Lewin, was "the symbolic interpretation of the Old and New Testaments...adapted to the needs of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries." The author analyzes at length individual plays performed at the Kyiv Mohyla Academy, including those by D.Tuptalo.
A924. Lewin, Paulina. "Early Ukrainian theater and drama." Nationalities Papers. 8.2 (Fall 1980): 219-232. Biblio.
According to Lewin, "drama played an important part in the cultural life of Ukraine in the sixteenth, seventeenth, and eighteenth centuries." She divides these works into those produced on the school stage and the mass popular stage, and analyzing in some detail representative examples of liturgical drama, school declamation, school drama, "short comedies of everyday life, known as intermedia" and the compilations and dramatic works produced on the popular stage. "The plays which have survived," says Lewin, "are eloquent testimony to the fact that all early Ukrainian theatre, on both types of stage, was first and foremost religious in character. Most of the secular productions were comic plays, but even this repertoire was performed on religious holidays and festivals."
A925. Lewin, Paulina. "Introduction." Seventeenth-Century Writings on the Kievan Caves Monastery. Cambridge, MA: Distributed by the Harvard University Press for the Ukrainian Research Institute of Harvard University, c1987. xi-xxxi, biblio. xxxiii-xxxv. (Harvard library of early Ukrainian literature. Texts. v. IV).
This 428 p. volume in the Harvard series contains - in facsimile - the original texts of three works: the Paterikon by Syl'vestr Kosov (Kyiv, 1635), Teraturgema by Afanasii Kalnofois'kyi (Kyiv, 1638) and Religiosae Kiovensis Cryptae by Johannes Herbinius (Jena, 1675). The first two are in Polish, the third - in Latin. All three deal with saints and miracles associated with the Kyivan Caves Monastery.
Paulina Lewin's introduction provides biographical data about Syl'vestr Kosov (date of birth unknown, died 13 April, 1657), Afanasii Kal'nofois'kyi [Afanasij Kal'nofojs'kyj in text] (a monk in the Kyivan Caves Monastery in the second quarter of the 17th century, dates unknown) and Johannes Herbinius (Polish form of name: Jan Kapusta, 1633?-1679?) and discusses the literary significance of these works.
A926. Lewin, Paulina. "Polish-Ukrainian-Russian literary relations of the sixteenth-eighteenth centuries: new approaches." Slavic and East European Journal. 24. 3 (Fall l980): 256-269. Biblio.
"East Slavic translations and adaptations of West European narratives", says Lewin, such as "romances of chivalry, picaresque novels, didactic tales, collections of short instructive stories, collections of anecdotes and facetiae" ... "were traced for the most part directly to Polish versions." Lectures on poetics from Kyiv and other Ukrainian schools also testify to "the role of Poland as an intermediary in the transmission of Western culture to Russia." "Ukrainian drama, theater, and para-theatrical forms of the sixteenth, seventeenth, and eighteenth centuries played an important role as an inter-Slavic cultural bond and also as a significant link between Western European and Eastern Slavic culture", but, according to Lewin, "similarities, repetitions, and literary coincidences in Polish dramatic works and in different Ukrainian plays cannot be regarded as evidence of any direct first-hand influence or borrowing." The "assimilation of the Baroque - and with it the assimilation of all the Western European heritage - took place in Russian literature because of the Polish and Ukrainian role as intermediaries between East and West", concludes Lewin.
A927. Lewin, Paulina. "The staging of plays at the Kiev Mohyla Academy in the Seventeenth and Eighteenth centuries." Harvard Ukrainian Studies. 5.3 (September 1981): 320-334.
Direct documentation about the staging techniques at the school theater of the Kyiv Mohyla Academy, according to Lewin, is "almost nonexistent. Extant today are only some plays which were published from manuscripts by scholars of our century and we must hope that these sufficiently characterize the repertoire." On the basis of one surviving play called "The Kingdom of Human Nature Destroyed by Temptation and Saved by Christ's Benevolence" staged at the Academy in 1698, Lewin attempts to reconstruct and describe the techniques that were probably used to make and change the scenery, to produce the play's 'miraculous' illusions by control of lighting, use of special screens, etc.
A928. Lewin, Paulina. "The Ukrainian school theater in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries: an expression of the Baroque." Harvard Ukrainian Studies. 5.1 (March 1981): 54-65.
"Lectures on poetics and rhetoric delivered during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries in Ukrainian Orthodox academies and colleges...", says Lewin, "testify to an acquaintance with ancient mythology, history, and literature and their Christian interpretations... The exercise and application of erudition was indeed the signum temporis of the Baroque." Lewin analyses Tsarstvo natury liudskoi - an Easter play performed in 1698 by the Kyivan school theater and discusses the Baroque elements in this play.

Subsections on "The writers' rebellion" (pp.56-59) and "The hard line restored"(pp.59-71) discuss the appearance of shestydesiatnyky in Ukrainian literature, the generational conflicts reflected in open criticism, the reaction of the party to what was viewed as an attempt to free literature from communist ideology, and the methods used by opponents of reform to regain influence over the intelligentsia and restore the status quo.

About Slovo o polku Ihorevim on the occasion of the poem's 800th anniversary. The author describes the plot and analyzes the contents of the poem. A few quotes from the article will provide a sample of Likhachov's point of view and his style: "In spite of the fact that The Lay is devoted to Igor's defeat, it is permeated with a sense of confidence in the power of the Russians and in the glorious future of the Russian land. This idea of unity in the face of terrible danger from outside pervades The Lay from beginning to end. The appeal to unite is filled with the most passionate, powerful and tender love for the motherland." The author of Slovo, according to Likhachov, was "a person close to the princes' circle", but his "social position... did not correspond to his social leanings. His ideas and hopes were inseparably linked with those of the Russian people". Slovo, says Likhachov, "is not exceptional in its combination of the epic and the lyrical. On the contrary, this combination is typical of ancient Russian literature as a whole." "The reader recognizes in The Lay the remarkable heroic spirit of the whole of Russian literature that was to follow, the author's great sense of responsibility, his understanding of his literary vocation and social duty." With three small and one full page b/w illustrations by Vladimir Favorsky.

A942. Lobodowski, Józef. "A Polish view of Polish-Ukrainian influences." Poland and Ukraine, Past and Present. Ed. by Peter J. Potichnyj. Edmonton: Canadian Institute of Ukrainian Studies (1980): 99-106.
_obodowski analyses Polish-Ukrainian cultural relations from the Middle Ages to the 20th century. The medieval culture of Kyiv, says _obodowski, was superior to that of Poland, but later, as a consequence of the prolonged Tatar domination, Ukraine began to suffer from a culture lag. Influence of Polish culture in Ukraine was especially strong after the Union of Lublin. "Polish culture was for a long time the unique intermediary by which the Ukrainians could find ready access to the ideas and accomplishments of the Occident", says _obodowski. Ukraine, its people and folklore appear in Polish literature early in the seventeenth century, but the nineteenth century "Ukrainian School" in Polish Romanticism is, according to _obodowski, "an unprecedented phenomenon in the history of world literature." Outstanding Ukrainian writers of the nineteenth century expressed considerable interest in Polish problems and Polish-Ukrainian relations. In the twentieth century, some prominent members of Polonized Ukrainian families returned to the Ukrainian side. One product of such a return was Maksym Ryl's'kyi, in _obodowski's view "the perfect translator of Mickiewicz" and "one of the greatest Ukrainian poets of all time." "...positive personal contacts and friendly relations between intellectuals of both countries have always taken place," says _obodowski, but these personal relations "have not been able to improve the general climate of relations which always has been very strained."
A943. Lomidze, Georgi. "In the search for truth and humanity." Soviet Literature. 10 (415) (1982): 155-162.
The article discusses works of Soviet writers dealing with "questions of morality and those relating to the education of the people in the spiritual sense." Among the writers singled out for the critic's attention are Yuri Bondarev, Chinghiz Aitmatov, Oles' Honchar [Gonchar in text] and Nodar Dumbadze. In the case of Honchar, the focus is on his novel "Your Dawn"(Tvoia zoria ) which is analyzed on pp.159-161. "Your Dawn" is characterized as a "political novel" written with an "explicit and forceful political and publicistic passion."
A944. Lord, Albert B. "Comparative Slavic epic." Harvard Ukrainian Studies. 5.1 (December 1981): 415-429.
Lord examines the oral epic in the Serbo-Croatian, Bulgarian, Russian and Ukrainian traditions and focuses on similarities and differences in metrical and syntactic patterns and themes. His conclusion: "From the analysis of texts in the Slavic regions we have learned that not only is variation occurring continuously, but also that it is not strictly speaking 'variation' at all (which tends to imply a fixed original of some sort), but constant re-creation within regional traditional parameters not merely of text, but also of narrative content."

The author examines several variants of two dumy - the duma of Cossack Holota (no.14 in Kateryna Hrushevs'ka's classic collection) and the duma of Khves'ko Gandzha Andyber (no.20). He finds that "the opening lines of these two related dumy " present "a graphic example of traditional composition. The basic idea is one of passage, and the essential element is a Cossack riding...Clustered around the essential element are varying numbers of modifying elements... Nothing in the text is rigid and fixed. The final form of any performance is unpredictable, although the elements that will go into it are well known." According to Lord, future performance cannot be predicted, and the past or "original" performance cannot be reconstructed. "This is what is meant by the 'fluidity' of oral traditional song texts. Their stories are retold and their texts are ever recomposed." Pages 583-594 contain several variants of the two dumy in their Ukrainian versions.

Lunt compares the English translation by Samuel Hazzard Cross published in 1930 with the original in the "five codices... generally regarded as providing the most reliable echoes of the early text" and comes to the conclusion that: "The chronicle certainly does not portray Jaroslav as a translator or even a copyist himself. Beyond this we are of course free to speculate about just what he did do and just who it was who created the schools and the scriptoria which produced the copies of South Slavic books that have survived from the Land of Rus' in the earliest period. What is important is that we admit freely that we are speculating."

The Kyiv Folia, "seven small leaves of parchment containing parts of Roman-rite services, written in archaic language in the glagolithic alphabet" is, according to Lunt, "the most controversial early Slavic manuscript." Lunt takes issue with Schaeken's hypothesis that the Kyiv Folia "are written in a late ninth-century Slavic dialect indigenous to the region of Lake Balaton" and refutes it by means of a linguistic analysis of the text. Says Lunt about the Kyiv Folia: "this short manuscript does NOT provide firm underpinnings for any specific linguistic conclusions that can be tied to region and date."

Cambridge, MA.: Distributed by Harvard University Press for the Harvard Ukrainian Research Institute and the Ukrainian Academy of Arts and Sciences in the U.S. (1983): 120-160.
Chapter four of what was originally a doctoral dissertation written at the University of Michigan. Mace describes the cultural climate in Ukraine in the 1920's, when to "thousands of people literature and art seemed the highest of callings", and "the stage belonged to a new generation of talented artists, either Party members or people strongly committed to the revolution's goals" who "felt themselves engaged in creating a whole new cultural universe", and various literary and artistic groups issued their manifestoes and engaged in serious polemics about the role of art and literature. Mace analyzes in detail the literary discussion initiated by Mykola Khvyl'ovyi, whose main argument, in Mace's words, was "that Ukrainian culture ought to develop in its own way, rejecting its own provincialism and the cultural legacy of Russian colonialism." Mace's chapter includes some fragments from the stories of Ostap Vyshnia, which provide humorous glimpses of the adulation of prominent writers at that time and of attempts to involve the masses in the creative process, i.e. to make writers out of the peasants and workers.

Biography of the Ukrainian émigré scholar Dmytro Chyzhevs'kyi (1894-1977) (also known as Cizevsky or Tschizevskij), with an extensive multilingual bibliography of his works and festschrifts in his honor. Chyzhevs'kyi's work is described as "both voluminous and extraordinarily diverse, touching on the literature and intellectual development of virtually all the Slavic nations over centuries of time." According to McLean, "Hardly any scholar of his generation can compare with Chyzhevs'kyi for breadth." Until the end of the 1930's Chyzhevs'kyi worked in philosophy and intellectual history. Later he turned his attention to literature. "Insisting on the value of comparative study of the Slavic literatures with one another and with the literatures of Western Europe," says the author, "he produced numerous programmatic works on the subject as well as important individual studies."

McMillin discusses the influences of Shevchenko on Belarusian literature and especially on the national poet of Belarusia, Ianka Kupa_a. There is a widespread view, says McMillin, that Kupa_a's "quasi historical narrative poem Bandaro_na was written "to a greater or lesser extent under Shevchenko's influence." McMillin traces the specific Shevchenko influences, but stresses also that "both the conception and the portrayal of Bandaro_na link the origins of Kupa_a's poem more to folk traditions than to the influence of Shevchenko as such."
A990. McMillin, Arnold. "Kupa_a's translations from ev_enko." Journal of Byelorussian Studies. Year 17. 5.1 (1981): 14-18.
Because of their quality and quantity, Kupa_a's Belarusian translations of Shevchenko's poetry "represent both an important part of his creative output and a valuable contribution to the enrichment of Byelorussian literature," says McMillin and provides a listing and an analysis of individual translations.

A five-part survey of literature produced by writers of the Carpatho-Rusyn region who wrote or write either in one of the Rusyn dialects or in an established literary language. Says Magocsi: "Linguists have identified as many as fourteen different Rusyn dialects..." and "... the majority of the Carpatho-Rusyn intelligentsia chose...to write in an already developed literary language - Latin, Magyar, Great Russian, Ukrainian, and sometimes Church Slavonic..." Among the writers who wrote in either Rusyn dialect or literary Ukrainian Magocsi discusses Oleksander Dukhnovych, Oleksander Pavlovych, Sydir Bilak, Vasyl' Grendza-Dons'kyi, Iulii Borshosh-Kumiats'kyi, Ivan Matsyns'kyi, Zoreslav.

Excerpts from an article about Lina Kostenko published originally in Ukrainian in Literaturna Ukraina, 29 January 1987, p.6. Kostenko's creative work, says Makarov, "is imbued with an artist's spiritual drama, a keen awareness, not only of a society's triumphs and achievements, but also its tragedies..." He comments on Marusia Churai ("suffused with the tragedy of a soul affected by all the suffering in the world") and on the collection Nepovtornist' (which, in Makarov's view, "attempts to awaken the conscience of the public, and human dignity in each of its readers, to arouse concern about the future of the Earth, the human race, the fate of culture.")

Blakytna troianda, the first play written by Lesia Ukrainka, has been criticized for its many flaws, including imitation and melodrama, says Makaryk. The influence of Ibsen has been noted by a number of scholars, but, in Makaryk's view, that of August Strindberg is just as important. "Lesia Ukrainka's "psychological probings in Blakytna troianda in many instances echo Strindberg's ideas of psychic murder," says Makaryk and "a knowledge of Strindberg's theory of psychic murder deepens an appreciation for and understanding of Blakytna troianda."

A statistical survey based on existing bibliographies. According to the author "...in the USSR the effort of publishing in book form Ukrainian translations of works of Yiddish creative literature has been very large, indeed -both in terms of the number of authors represented (sixty-four) and in the number of volumes published (260). Virtually all of these translations were published in Ukraine."

A1001. Mann, Robert. " 'Iron talons' in the Igor Tale." Canadian Slavonic Papers. 22. 3 (September 1980): 408-410.
An attempt to explain the mysterious word paporzi in the Slovo o polku Ihorevim. In the author's view, it is probably a corruption of paznogti and "iron talons" can be interpreted as "a metaphor for the princes swords."
A1002. Mann, Robert. "Is there a passage missing at the beginning of the Igor Tale?" Slavic Review. 41.4 (Winter 1982): 666-672.
According to Mann, the extant opening lines of Slovo o polku Ihorevim (i.e. "Ne lepo li ny biashet', bratie, nachiati starymi slovesy") "remain among the most problematic in the entire text." He thinks that "much of the ambiguity in these lines probably stems from the incompleteness of the text."
A1003. Mann, Robert. "A note on the text of the Igor Tale ." Slavic Review. 39.2 (June 1980): 281-285.
Mann poses a question about the first ten lines of Slovo o polku Ihorevim. "Why does the narrator propose to begin 'from Vladimir' when Vladimir plays no role at the beginning of this tale? And what is meant by 'beginning from Vladimir to Igor'?" Taking issue with the theories of D.S. Likhachov, and Roman Jakobson, the author proposes his own explanation. In his view, the beginning "lacks a phrase or number specifying spatial or temporal boundaries". He believes, that the original passage probably read "From old Vladimir it was 170 years to the present day Igor".

Manning compares the role of Shevchenko to those of Homer, Vergil, Dante, Chaucer, Shakespeare, Mickiewicz and Pushkin, and provides a sketch of the poet's life. "By his life and works", claims Manning, "Taras Shevchenko fully justified his right to be considered the spokesman for Ukraine." The article is, apparently, an unattributed reprint of one published originally in the Ukrainian Quarterly in the Summer of 1964 [cf. ULE: Articles in Journals and Collections, A449].

Marchenko comments on his two previous articles Kyivs'kyi dialoh and Za paravanom ideolohii, which were used, according to the editorial note, "to bring charges against him and sentence him to six years' labor camp and two years' exile." In his essay Marchenko critically discusses the state of Ukrainian Soviet literature, specifically works of Vasyl' Kozachenko and Mykola Nahnybida that were awarded the Shevchenko Prize. Says Marchenko in his essay-memoir: "Next to the editorial offices where I worked, stood the headquarters of the 800-member Writers' Union of Ukraine, whose uniformity, by the early seventies, delighted the ideologists. I attended many union sessions on various levels, where there was no discussion, just approbation. Outside its walls a national tragedy was taking place - the language and culture were dying, while beet-faced 'engineers of human souls', attempting to undo one another, extolled some anemic collection of poetry, or with solemn visage analyzed the state of nonexistent literary criticism."

The "crippled creative biographies" included in Marshall's book are those of Vsevolod Pudovkin, Dziga Vertov, Alexander Dovzhenko and Sergei Eisenstein. In Marshall's view, all of them were crippled in the sense that " "their artistic and creative development was stultified, nullified, vilified, crucified by Stalin and the Communist Party." In his introduction to the book, Marshall claims that he knew every one of his subjects personally and that the book is "a montage of memorabilia", culled from "personal recollections, diaries, notes, unpublished autobiography, as well as letters, documents, press cuttings, articles and books in various languages..." The emphasis in Marshall's silhouette of Dovzhenko is on film making. There are separate chapters for each of Dovzhenko's films, with extensive quotations from Dovzhenko diaries and letters, Marshall's letters to Dovzhenko and his personal recollections, Khrushchev's memoirs, etc. "As compared to Eisenstein, who scintilated intellectual wit, and Pudovkin, who was a passionate, volatile man, Alexander Dovzhenko, who was considered the Michelangelo of the trio, really was more like Michelangelo's 'David'. He had such dignity, such poise, such beauty and what in Russian they call oboyanie, which one might call radiance. He seemed to have an aura. Eisenstein had intellectual passion, Pudovkin emotional but Dovzhenko had poetic passion," says Marshall. "...it remained for the poet Dovzhenko to cry out at the top of his voice in his diaries and notebooks the truth about what kind of regime he served so faithfully." With 5 illustrations on added pages, including Dovzhenko's self-portrait and two caricatures of him - one by himself and one by Isaac Schmidt.

A sub-section of the author's "History of Ukrainian culture" which is published serially in several issues of the Ukrainian Review. The "History" is a translation of the book Geschichte der ukrainischen Kultur published originally in German (Munich: Osteuropa Institut, 1957). Says Mirchuk: "In language, literature, folklore and custom, in religious life and cultural development, music, the plastic arts and philosophy, everywhere we can see clearly and unmistakably the strong organic link between man and the earth which he tilled and which nourished him."

A1037. Mishalow, Victor. "Ukrainian dumy - 'little tradition' or 'great tradition'?" Bandura. 7.19-20 (January-April 1987): 25-28.
"Great tradition" is defined by the author as synonymous with "high culture", i.e. one "formed by the knowledge, doctrines, philosophy and aesthetic canon of the elite." "Little tradition", on the other hand, is defined as "lore, beliefs, folk wisdom and artistic expressions of the common people". Dumy, says Mishalow, were based on "folk and possibly written sources. They were, however, formed and influenced by the doctrines and aesthetic canons of the elite in sixteenth-seventeenth century Ukraine and thus could be categorized as being a part of the 'high tradition' of that era. Dumy reflected the ideas and thoughts of the times and were consciously carried down by a complex system of apprenticeships. They were cultivated and systematized over a period of time to form a specific genre which differed from historic folk songs and they were transmitted systematically and purposely from teacher to student and from one kobzar to another." Dumy, concludes Mishalow, "were a 'great tradition' which survived as part of, or more precisely, associated with the 'little tradition', even though it continues to have many of the characteristics of the 'great tradition'."

A biographical and critical study. Mishchuk considers Kotsiubynskyi "one of the most talented prose writers of the turn of this century." Kotsiubyns'kyi's prose, according to the author, "introduces the reader to the rich diversity of human life pulsating with varied thought, moods and experiences." "His works are remarkably modern in asserting the beauty of human existence which serves to affirm the tremendous potential of man in his difficult struggle for self-realization." With a large b/w portrait of Kotsiubyns'kyi and accompanied by a translation of his short story "The Unknown". [cf.T259].

A critical profile with bio-bibliographical data and an analysis of the works of Ivan Nechui-Levyts'kyi. "The writer's greatest achievement", according to Mishchuk, "is connected with his study of the essence of good in the nature of the working man. Such a strong-willed, remarkably forceful and gifted personality is portrayed in the novelette Mikola Dzherya..." In his novels "The Clouds", "By the Black Sea" Nechui-Levyts'kyi "made an interesting attempt to explore the idea of a rapprochement between intellectuals and the common people."

[cf.T328]. Mishchuk considers Khiba revut' voly Myrnyi's greatest success. The novel, according to Mishchuk, "covers about a hundred years of Ukrainian history", presenting "a broad range of characters", and "a collective image of the common people who waver between spontaneous outbursts of protest and timid obedience." With a b/w portrait of the writer on p.28.
A1042. Mkrtchyan, Levon. "Ivan Drach: an earthy word about the sky." Soviet Literature. 1(442) (1985): 113-116, port.
"Ivan Drach's poetry is full of philosophical reflections about modern man and the paths he is following," says the author. "There is also a confessional quality about some of his writing. He is keenly aware of the historical time and its relationship to the present day." Rather than a study of Drach's poetry, however, the article is a personal memoir about Drach with an emphasis on his connections with Armenian writers and artists. A b/w photo of Drach appears on p.114. A selection of Drach's poetry in translation follows the article. [cf.T086].

The heroic epics of Ukraine, the dumy, are defined here as "verse narratives performed in a recitative style, traditionally to the accompaniment of the bandura or kobza..." Moyle discusses the contents of dumy, their verse structure, music and instrumental accompaniment, and performers - kobzari or bandurysty. She also provides an extensive critical survey of modern duma scholarship and the of systematic recording of the dumy that began in the nineteenth century. According to Moyle, there are two basic cycles of dumy: the first deals with battles against the Turks and Tatars from the fifteenth to the seventeenth century and with the Turko-Tatar captivity. Dumy of this cycle, says Moyle, "extol the virtues of courage, loyalty, perseverance and self-sacrifice, though their message is not entirely unambiguous." The second cycle deals with the struggle against the Polish nobility in the second half of the seventeenth century and centers around Hetman Bohdan Khmel'nyts'kyi. Dumy of the second cycle, "in addition to praising desirable qualities - courage and dedication", says Moyle, "mock undesirable traits such as disloyalty, infidelity, materialism, and selfishness." According to Moyle, "The pessimistic tone of dumy has occasioned more comment than any other aspect of their content..." "Even dumy that describe a successful battle or a successful escape usually end up with an epilogue about the transitory nature of human life, the ephemeral nature of any success, and the inevitability of death." In this connection, Moyle discusses the theories of Filiaret Kolessa and Roman Jakobson about the relationship between dumy and laments.
A1050. Muchin, Halyna. "Populism and modernism in Ukrainian literary criticism, 1860-1920." Dissertation Abstracts International. 48.5 (November 1987): 1220A.
An abstract of a 1987 PhD. dissertation submitted to the University of Alberta. [Length of dissertation and order number not indicated]. Ukrainian populism, according to this abstract, was permeated by utilitarianism and didacticism, reflecting the world-view of the Ukrainian peasant. Ukrainian modernism was a reaction against populism. According to the author, "Impressionism marked the beginning of a process of moving away from populism and an attempt to consider literature as art free of utilitarian concerns". "Modernism and its struggle with the populistic dogmas reached the pinnacle with the development of Ukrainian Neoromanticism", says the author. The modernistic trend, however, was short-lived and ended in the 1930's "as a direct result of Soviet literary policy".

An English summary of an article that appears in the journal in Russian on pp. 113-130. Teisuke Shibuya, born 1905, is a Japanese poet, author of a collection whose English title is given as "Crying in the Fields", published in 1926, which was dedicated to Taras Shevchenko. According to the summary, Murai shows that "Shibuya's encounter with Shevchenko exercised a far-reaching influence over his subsequent works" and that "Shibuya was, on the whole, able to grasp correctly the true nature of Shevchenko as a revolutionary democrat". The summary calls Shevchenko "a noted Russian revolutionary poet" and states that "Shibuya definitely shared much in common with the Russian poet and had much to learn from him." Murai's Russian article, however, correctly identifies Shevchenko as a Ukrainian poet.

Excerpts from Musiienko's speech at a Party meeting of the Kyiv branch of the Writers' Union of Ukraine, published originally in Literaturna Ukraina of 18 February 1988. The author discusses Mykola Skrypnyk, the importance of his role and his suicide in July 1933, the Stalinist cult of personality and the repressions that "clipped the wings of the emerging young Soviet Ukrainian literature, rendered it impotent, stomped on its very heart and soul." "The cult of personality's poisonous vapors", says Musiienko, poisoned the society's spiritual and cultural life not for years, but for decades... The Khrushchev 'thaw' was characterized by half-measures, says Musiienko, and Brezhnev's era of stagnation created an environment in which works such as Honchar's Sobor or Iaroslav Dzyra's scholarly work on Velychko's Chronicle as a source of Shevchenko's poetry became subjects of unjustified attack and repressions.

Honchar's novel, says Novychenko, is "about the evergrowing contradictions between technology and Nature of which man himself is a part." It is also "an artistic x-ray of two differently moving civilizations determined by socially-opposed ways of life" and "a 'meditation novel' about present-day man himself, about his spiritual and moral foundation, about the forces that elevate or destroy him". Honchar's novel, says Novychenko, is "always poetically condensed and rich in many-layered metaphorical meaning... charged with emotion and problems to which the author is insistently seeking solutions."

An analysis of the mysterious and irrational elements in the writings of Kotsiubyns'kyi (especially in Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors, i.e. Tini zabutykh predkiv ) and of T.Storm (especially in Der Schimmelreiter). "In elucidating their progressively more deterministic philosophy," says the author, both Storm and Kotsiubyns'kyi "used the irrational as a power which exemplifies the paradox of the world and man's abandonment to a world without salvation. The irrational appears in their works not only in the symbolic use of nature and magic - their protagonists themselves are driven by demonic forces. Man is not to be viewed as an autonomous being who can freely forge his own character."

Interspersed with excerpts of Shevchenko's poetry in unattributed translations, including 12 lines of "Brother, go slow" (Moholy, moholy) and 6 lines of "That's how, o Pole, my friend and brother".

Translated from the Russian text published as "Sovremennost' i literatura" (Literaturnaia gazeta, 6 May 1987). Oliinyk expresses a critical view of selective glasnost, a plea for the publication of writers like V. Vynnychenko and for the return to Lenin's view of the Ukrainian language. Lenin, says Oliinyk, "viewed the Ukrainian language as the most important means of communist education of the working masses and called for every effort to be made to resist attempts to give the issue secondary importance."

Oliinyk concentrates on the lines of Shevchenko's Zapovit in which the poet speaks of "the great new family, the family of the free". In these lines, says Oliinyk, "artistic vision is truly equal to prevision". Oliinyk quotes comments on Shevchenko by Oleksandr Bilets'kyi (Alexander Beletsky in text), Maksim Gorkii and Nikolai Chernyshevskii. "Because of the 'sense of a single family', because of the mutual enrichment of all cultures in the USSR, Taras Shevchenko's poetry has become an asset of every nationality, every people inhabiting the Soviet Union", says Oliinyk. The article is richly illustrated on glossy large-format paper with six b/w reproductions of Shevchenko's paintings and etchings, including the selfportrait of 1860.

Excerpts from a 1000-word speech published originally in Literaturnaia gazeta (10 March 1988): 9. Oliinyk poses a question: "...why is it that the desire to develop and enrich one's mother tongue, to expand the sphere of its use in science and public affairs, in schools and institutions of higher education - a desire that always has been viewed and still is viewed as a natural expression of patriotism - is often interpreted in our country as a negative manifestation of some 'ism'?..." Oliinyk proposes that the CPSU Central Committee "establish harsh punishment for the insulting of national dignity, calumny and the pinning of labels such as 'nationalist' and 'chauvinism' that do not correspond to reality..."

A historical survey of Ukrainian theater groups active at various times throughout the century-long history of Ukrainian settlement in the United States. Even though the focus of the survey is on stage presentations, their organizers and performers, enough data is provided on the repertory of these groups to warrant its inclusion in this bibliography. The plays of the first quarter of the twentieth century, according to Onyshkevych, "were written for immediate performance", while on the other hand, the plays of the post-World War II years were written primarily as literary works, and only a third of them were ever staged. Of special interest are lists and characterizations of Ukrainian plays published and/or performed in the United States (pp.531-532, 540).

Says the anonymous author: "In spite of his many achievements and his relationship with other prominent figures of his time, he has received relatively little attention in historiography, probably because of his views. Essentially, he was dismissed among Soviet scholars as a bourgeois nationalist; the Ukrainian nationalists seem to have been alienated primarily by his position that Ukraine should be united with Russia while maintaining its separate cultural identity."

"Noctes Rossicae" is a treatise on East Slavic mythology, history, pagan rites and music. One of its ten chapters is devoted to translations of about twenty folk songs. Of these no.9 ("Under a cherry tree") is described as a specimen of "slow plaintive songs of Little Russia".

Says Parkhomenko about Franko: "He was the first Ukrainian writer to interpret literature and art in the light of socialist ideals, and his own works adhered to some of the principles that later formed the basis of socialist realism. Franko's publicist writing and critical articles attacked Ukrainian bourgeois nationalism, decadence, and the theory of art for art's sake."

Says Pavlychko: "For Ukrainian literature Shevchenko did what Goethe, Pushkin and Shakespeare did for their respective literatures. He raised Ukrainian letters to the level of eternal ideals of worldwide appeal. Representing a nation deprived of statehood, he also came to symbolize not only its artistic identity, but its political sovereignty as well. He is Ukraine's most valid claim to international recognition. This claim contains not a single word that might offend other peoples but shows great respect for all of them."

Says Pavlychko: "A leading trait in the writing of modern Ukrainian poets is the personality of man whose moral standards are thoroughly probed. Yet, for all its deep attachment to patriotic motifs, Ukrainian poetry does not mirror the life of one country alone. It also dwells on the personality of man with its intricately complex, rich, sensitive, contradictory, heroic and restless spiritual essence." With a reproduction of the book's cover and an editorial note, as well as selections of poetry by Tychyna, Bazhan, Malyshko, Ryl's'kyi, Drach and Vinhranovs'kyi on p.17.

A1150. Pavlyshyn, Marko. "Artist or moralist? Volodymyr Vynnychenko's The Solar Machine." Australian Slavonic and East European Studies. 3.2 (1989): 17-33. Biblio. footnotes.
Vynnychenko's literary rehabilitation in Soviet Ukraine and the publication for the first time since 1929 of his most widely read book Soniashna mashyna in the journal Kyiv in 1989 lead the author to a critical reappraisal of this three-volume utopian novel. Pavlyshyn attempts "the evaluative analysis of the interplay between moral persuasion - the process of producing moral conviction - on the one hand, and the art of producing readerly pleasure on the other." Pavlyshyn considers Soniashna mashyna to be "an exciting, well-written and entertaining book", but one which is "insufficiently reflective, analytical, coherent and complex in its judgements to be the statement of an artist-moralist". Says Pavlyshyn: "Yet the book, in setting out to depict the way toward the good society, requires that its authorial persona should be revealed as a moral authority. Its failure to do so, in my view, is a failure to abide by its own implicit rules and, therefore, an aesthetic failure."
A1151. Pavlyshyn, Marko. "Aspects of recent Ukrainian literature in the USSR." Ukrainian Issues. 1.4 (1984-85): 2-10. illus., ports. Biblio.
Pavlyshyn concerns himself here not with the typical in Soviet Ukrainian literature, but rather, in his own words, "with literature that aspires toward an aesthetic penetration of Soviet Ukrainian reality, rather than literature which repeats official pronouncements concerning that reality." His focus is on "the possibilities created by the post-Stalin liberalization, the discussion in literature of the particularly central and difficult question of nationhood in the USSR, and the consequences of literature's descent underground, into the world of samvydav (unofficial publishing)..." He discusses "innovative, yet officially sanctioned literature" and "the literature of outright dissent", singling out for special attention the work of Vasyl' Symonenko, Ivan Drach, Lina Kostenko, Oles' Honchar, Mykola Rudenko, Vasyl' Stus and Ihor Kalynets'. Other writers are mentioned briefly. The article is interspersed with excerpts of poetry in unattributed translations, including complete or longer pieces by Mykola Nahnybida [cf.T330], Ivan Svitlychnyi [cf.T562], Ivan Drach [cf.T075], Lina Kostenko [cf.T238], Vitalii Korotych [cf.T229], Vasyl' Symonenko [cf.T567], Vasyl Stus [cf.T535].

Pavlyshyn classifies Ukrainian-Australian poetry as elegiac, proclamatory, and satirical. "The elegiac reflects the sadness associated with the loss of the homeland, the proclamatory reiterates the founding patriotic ideals of the émigré community, and the satirical protects the founding ideals by castigating those who abandon them." He discusses the work of Iryna Narizhna, Vasyl' Onufriienko, Bozhena Kovalenko, Zoia Kohut and, somewhat outside the three classes, the more modernist poets Lydiia Daleka and Ievhen Zoze. Texts of poetry are quoted in the Ukrainian original, with literal line translations provided in footnotes.

Ed. by Boris Christa et al. Neuried (West Germany): Hieronymus, 1988. (Selecta Slavica, 12). 273-288. Biblio.
By examining elements of the conservation theme in Oles' Honchar's Sobor and in Mykola Rudenko's Orlova balka, Pavlyshyn attempts "to show that in both works the authors argue the need for more or less far-reaching modifications in their reader's world view", but they do it with "caution and deliberate self-limitation." This argumentative tentativeness, a common feature of both novels, weakens them both, according to Pavlyshyn. Honchar, instead of "a more profound criticism of the structural ills of Soviet society", places the blame for environmental destruction "on the brakon'ier principle - the individual evil which prevails in all societies." Rudenko's objective, on the other hand, "is to argue that not Marxism but pantheism is the analytic tool by means of which reality may most adequately be understood." "In the final analysis", says Pavlyshyn, "Sobor and Orlova balka are both victims, directly or indirectly, of the system of literary controls conventionally called Socialist Realism. Abiding by its orthodoxies, Honchar cannot finish the critical edifice whose foundations his novel persuasively establishes. Rudenko, on the other hand, for all the vehemence of his rejection of socialist realist habits, negates them but fails to transcend them."

A survey of the discussion of the Ukrainian literary process - " a discussion that at times has been sharply critical of the writing fraternity and its attitudes, no less than of literature's institutional and organizational framework". The discussion surveyed took place in the pages of the weekly Literaturna Ukraina in November and December of 1986 and in early 1987. With extensive bibliographical references.

The components of Ukrainian whimsical novels are, according to Pavlyshyn, a rural setting with ethnographic detail, historical references to the Cossack past, elements of the fantastic and the supernatural, eccentric style, erotic allusions and humor. He discusses Oleksandr Il'chenko's Kozats'komu rodu nema perevodu, Vasyl' Zemliak's Lebedyna zhraia, Ievhen Hutsalo's Pozychenyi cholovik, Pryvatne zhyttia fenomena and Parad planet and Valerii Shevchuk's Dim na hori. Pavlyshyn is critical of the whimsical novel and considers it to be "an anachronistic reactivation of the old Kotliarevsky mania". Kotliarevs'kyi's formula, says Pavlyshyn "was valid only at the initial stages of cultural self-definition. Once a modern national identity had been established, the self-same combination of the historical with the ethnographic, especially in the stylistic proximity of humour, came to be perceived as anti-modern and even offensive." Of the novels discussed only Valerii Shevchuk's Dim na hori, because of the "aesthetic strategy" of the author "would prove fruitful ground for several critical metodologies," says Pavlyshyn.
A1157. Pavlyshyn, Marko. "Oles Berdnyk's Okotsvit and Zorianyi korsar : Romantic utopia and science fiction. Journal of Ukrainian Studies. 8. 2 (Winter 1983): 89-101.
Berdnyk's science fiction novels Okotsvit and Zorianyi korsar , says Pavlyshyn, "contain mythical themes: the origin of worlds and civilizations, their redemption, and conflicts between heroic personalities." Berdnyk's novels, however, are mythogenic in a romantic sense, and Pavlyshyn sees far-reaching parallels with the works of the early German romantics Friedrich Schlegel and Friedrich Novalis.
A1158. Pavlyshyn, Marko. "The rhetoric and politics of Kotliarevsky's Eneida." Journal of Ukrainian Studies. l0.1 (Summer 1985): 9-24.
"Eneida is profoundly political," says Pavlyshyn. "...Kotliarevsky had achieved the maximum of what was possible, given the horizon of expectations of his audience. He had introduced a nonliterary language into literature by utilizing the only genre that could have served his purpose, and his Eneida, for all its surface levity, had been through and through an argument for a modern, relevant national consciousness - an argument the more powerful for not being immediately identifiable as such."

Melbourne: Department of Slavic Languages, Monash University, 1986. (Shevchenko Scientific Society of Australia, Library of Ukrainian studies, no.54). 99-113.
Works written in the satirical or comic modes form a significant portion of Ukrainian writing in Australia, says Pavlyshyn. He provides a survey and a critical analysis of satirical poetry by Zoia Kohut, a long burlesque poem by Vasyl' Onufrienko, humorous short stories by Lesia Bohuslavets' (pseud.) and Opanas Brytva (pseudonym of Orest Barchyns'kyi), and one-act plays by Hryts'ko Volokyta (pseud. of Iaroslav Masliak).

The success of Ivan Kotliarevs'kyi's Eneida has obscured a puzzling question, says Pavlyshyn. " Why did, and how could" a derivative work belonging to a "low" literary genre "become a touchstone of a literary revival?" Pavlyshyn provides two reasons: 1/ "because it answered perfectly to the cultural expectations and needs of the contemporary reading public" and 2/ because "it exerted influence on the literary process by discovering the two myths which, in Ukraine's politically and culturally dependent condition, could help supply the educated Ukrainian reader's need for an identity. These were... the 'ethnographic' myth, and the historical myth of the Golden Age of Ukrainian cossackdom."

A critical analysis of Ievhen Hutsalo's "dilogy" - the two interrelated novels Pozychenyi cholovik and Pryvatne zhyttia fenomena. Pavlyshyn "proposes a description and evaluation of Pozychenyy cholovik as evidence for the thesis that the novel's failure is principally a (perhaps inevitable) failure to reconcile the intellectually subversive comic tradition with a panegyrical intention to reinforce officially prescribed points of view."

The mythological figure of Vila, according to Pazuniak, is unknown in Ukrainian folk mythology, but is frequently to be found in Serbian national epics. Lesia Ukrainka's poem can be viewed "as an original transformation of the Serbian epic subject which appears so frequently in numerous variations in the separate cycles of Junacke pjesme ", says the author. She lists a number of Serbian stylistic features that are preserved in Lesia Ukrainka's poem.

The Bykhovets Chronicle, a literary monument of the second half of the sixteenth century, used many medieval documents as its source. According to Perfecky, however, "the only direct source was the Galician-Volynian Chronicle." The author attempts to prove this hypothesis by a comparative analysis of texts.

Perfecky produces evidence to suggest "that the compiler of the Byxovec Chronicle did not have the Hypatian or the Xlebnikov copies of the Galician-Volhynian Chronicle at his disposal. Instead he probably had a copy - or else excerpts derived ultimately from a copy - of the Galician-Volhynian Chronicle that differed slightly from the two traditions we know."

The Hungarian censor at Pest allowed Rusalka Dnistrovaia to be published and one thousand copies were printed in Buda in 1837. According to Petrash, the Lviv censor, however, "objected both to the contents of the almanac and its use of popular speech and phonetic orthography. He decided that its distribution should be prohibited. About 800 copies were confiscated and legal proceedings were brought against the publishers. But Rusalka Dnistrovaya was not doomed to perish. Some 200 copies were widely distributed with the help of friends..." Petrash examines the contents of this 150-page almanac prepared by Markiian Shashkevych, Ivan Vahylevych and Iakiv Holovats'kyi, which was destined to become a literary landmark.

Shpyhots'kyi and others), all of whom were either professors or students at Kharkiv university in the 1830' and 1840s. "... Their view of the common people differed from the patronizing attitude of their predecessors I. Kotliarevs'ky and H. Kvitka-Osnovianenko. Instead of treating the people as naive children of nature, they saw in them a source of spiritual renewal and strength and poetic inspiration", says the author.
A1172. Petrenko, P. "Kotliarevsky, Ivan." Encyclopedia of Ukraine. 2 (1988): 633-634. Port. Illus. Biblio.
Ivan Kotliarevs'kyi (1769-1838), poet and playwright, is characterized here as 'the 'founder' of modern Ukrainian literature whose greatest literary work was Eneida, a travesty of Virgil's Aeneid. Eneida , says Petrenko, "was written at a time when popular memory of the Cossack Hetmanate was still alive and the oppression of tsarist serfdom in Ukraine was at its height. Kotliarevsky's broad satire of the mores of the social estates during these two distinct ages, combined with the invogue use of ethnographic detail and with racy, colorful, colloquial Ukrainian, ensured his works great popularity among his contemporaries." Petrenko also discusses other works of Kotliarevs'kyi, as well as his influence on other writers not only of Ukrainian, but also of Russian and Belarusian literatures. A reproduction of the title page of the first edition of Eneida is used as an illustration.

An essay meant "to call the attention of Slavists to important aspects of the Old Russian literary heritage which have been insufficiently investigated in the past." Says Picchio" "...it is not generally accepted practice to consider ecclesiastical culture as a dominant source of inspiration for Old Russian writers. This reluctance should be put aside. It seems evident that the true meaning of many Old Russian works is very difficult to grasp for the modern reader without sufficient command of the sacred texts or at least a Bible on his desk, plus an adequate collection of biblical and patristic reference books at hand." According to Picchio, "A complete inventory of Old Russian techniques and their assessment as expressions of a literary civilization apparently dependent on ecclesiastic models may lead to a substantial revision of current historiographic schemes."

"In dealing with the problem of the spiritual and economic emancipation of women," says Pohrebennyk, Ol'ha Kobylians'ka was "the first in Ukrainian literature to respond to those winds which indicate the influence of socialist ideas in Western European literature and were directed toward the glorification of mankind and the confirmation of humanitarian principles." It is from these sources , says Pohrebennyk, that Kobylians'ka "got her implacable attitude to petty provincialism, the drudgery of everyday life, passive existence - to all that impoverished the human spirit." In the 1890's Kobylians'ka wrote "a series of deeply-realistic stories and sketches on the life of the common people, appearing as a master of the socio-psychological image of the spiritual world of the worker. The theme of intellectualism in her work, therefore," says Pohrebennyk, "is joined and completed by the theme of the life of the working peasantry which is so monumentally illuminated in her best creative canvas "Land" (Zemlya) written in 1902." The article appears in the Ukrainian Canadian in abbreviated form, but the source of the original is not indicated.

Lesia Ukrainka, says Pohrebennyk, "used universal themes for topical reference. Turning to past and modern cultures, she saw the bitter destiny of her own land.

According to Andrzej Poppe, only one person - Vsevolod, the ruler of Vladimir-Suzdal' Rus' and son of Iurii Dolgorukii - is given the title "grand prince" in Slovo o polku Ihorevim. "The anonymous author's knowledge of the titles of Rus' princes in the final decades of the twelfth century is clearly consistent with the actual historical situation," says Poppe.
A1199. Poppe, Nicholas, Jr. "A survey of studies of Turkic loan words in the Slovo o polku Igoreve." Central Asiatic Journal. 28.1-2 (1984): 89-99.
"The text of the Slovo contains 40 to 45 words which have been discussed as possible Turkic borrowings," says the author. "The majority of these words are appellative nouns and anthroponyms, specifically names, titles, and designations of tribes. Most lexical items refer to the Turkic Kumans (polovci), since the epic describes the military campaign of 1185 AD against them." The author critivally surveys the lexical studies and concludes that "discovery of these archaic lexical elements is a powerful, and indeed irrefutable, argument in favor of accepting the antiquity as well as the authenticity of the Slovo..."

For Roman Jakobson, says Pritsak, "The IT [i.e.the Igor Tale, Slovo o polku Ihorevim] became his passion and obsession. He was able to provide the essential exegesis of the IT and hence the authenticity of the tale became a dogma for him. He then demanded that his colleagues share his belief and aid him in the holy war against the infidels who dared to question it. R.J.'s colleagues will always recall how often their stand on the IT was for him the basis of either a casus belli or a lasting friendship." Pritsak provides a survey of the scholarly discussion about the authenticity of the Slovo and concludes that Roman Jakobson's work was groundbreaking in this "very complex and difficult field of research".

Part I (pp.xi-xxix) by Omeljan Pritsak. Part II (pp.xxx-liii) by Bohdan Struminsky. The volume includes facsimile texts of Krevza's work published originally in Vilnius in 1617 and of Zakharia Kopystens'kyi's Palinodiia, which, according to Pritsak, is a "newly discovered manuscript", written in 1620-1627 but never hitherto published. Pritsak characterizes both these works as "two outstanding examples of the polemical literature which marked the highly-charged debate among Ukrainian and Belorussian Christians in the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth after the Union of Brest in 1596." Krevza, says Pritsak, presents the position of the Uniates, while Kopystens'kyi speaks for the Orthodox. The two works are interrelated, since, according to Pritsak, Kopystens'kyi's work was "a direct, point-by-point response to Krevza's text." Pritsak discusses the place of both these works in the development of Ukrainian polemical literature, the reasons why Palinodiia remained unpublished, and the fate of its autograph. Struminsky discusses printed versions of Palinodiia and provides biographies of both authors, Lavrentij (Lev) Krevza Bejda Revus'kyi whose year of death was 1639, and Zakharia Kopystens'kyi, born ca.1585.

A1215. Pugh, Stefan M. "The language of Meletij Smotryc'kyj: a linguistic analysis."/ Stefan Morgenschweis Pugh. Dissertation Abstracts International. 45.8 (February 1985): 2512A.
An abstract of a 1984 PhD. dissertation written at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. (286 p). [The dissertation is available in print or on microfilm from University Microfilms International, order no.DA8425510]. According to this abstract, the study is a linguistic analysis of the Ruthenian language of Meletii Smotryts'kyi, with an emphasis "on its phonological and morphological aspects". The author's conclusion is that Meletii Smotryts'kyi's language can be described more accurately as "Ukrainian-Ruthenian".
A1216. Pugh, Stefan M. "The Ruthenian language of Meletij Smotryc'kyj: Phonology." Harvard Ukrainian Studies. 9.1/2 (June 1985): 53-60.
An analysis of two texts written in Ruthenian by Meletii Smotryts'kyi in an attempt to characterize his language as either "Ukrainian-Ruthenian" or "Belorussian-Ruthenian". The author's conclusion is that "we may be justified in labelling the phonological component of Smotryc'kyj's language as "Ukrainian-Ruthenian"; the only "Belorussian" phonological features occuring in his texts are also characteristic of Ukrainian."

Eucharisterion, al'bo Vdiachnost' was a pamphlet published in 1632 by the Caves Monastery in Kyiv. It contains a set of poems recited by students of the newly established gymnasium at an Easter program to honor the archimandrite Petro Mohyla, the school's founder. Pylypiuk provides a bibliographical description of the pamphlet and a detailed analysis of its contents, discussing the possible authorship of Sofronii Pochas'kyi (Sofronij Pocas'kyj in text). She characterizes Eucharisterion as a panegyric, "a complex work that mixes history and politics with rhetorical tradition." In Pylypiuk's view, however, "the work harbors a complex allegorical statement on the founder of the Kiev school and the institution itself, and sheds light on the historical circumstances that motivated its composition."

In his Reflections on the Revolution in France, published originally in London in 1790, Edmund Burke defined the nation as "a partnership not only between those who are living, but between those who are living, those who are dead, and those who are to be born", says Pyziur. This, in Pyziur's view, might have influenced the title of Shevchenko's poem Poslaniie - (Epistle) "To the dead, to the living and the unborn fellow-countrymen". The author, a political scientist, analyses Shevchenko's Poslaniie "from the standpoint of political theory", stressing "the similarities as well as the contrasts of the political ideas of Shevchenko and Burke."
