The Electronic Library of Ukrainian Literature provides free access to electronic texts of Ukrainian
literature to all readers, particularly to students outside Ukraine, where texts are often difficult to
The library is a personal project of Prof. Maxim Tarnawsky at the University of Toronto. Support for the library has come from the Danylo Husar Struk Programme in Ukrainian Literature of the Canadian Institute of Ukrainian Studies, the University of Toronto, and Ukrainian publishers, including Krytyka, Pulsary, and MOSTY.
The Electronic LIbrary contains both Ukrainian and English texts. The Ukrainian side of the library, which contains original works of literature and critical, historical, and other meta-literary texts, has seen much more development than the English side. The English side of the library contains English translations of literary texts.
I wish to express my sincere appreciation, and that of all library users, to Anatole Bilenko, Mary Skrypnyk, and Yuri Tkach, who have given permission for their published translations to be included in this library.
