a NEW ANTHOLOGY OF MODERN UKRAINIAN DRAMA IN ENGLISH
AN ANTHOLOGY OF MODERN UKRAINIAN DRAMA
Compiled, edited, and with introductory essays by Larissa M. L. Zaleska Onyshkevych
xviii + 521 pp.
This book is the first extensive anthology of modern Ukrainian drama to be published in English. It is an insightful textbook and invaluable source of information for students of Ukrainian literature in English-speaking countries. Dr. Onyshkevych developed the idea for this collection while teaching Ukrainian literature at Rutgers University, New Jersey. In preparing a course on Ukrainian drama in translation, she discovered that only a few Ukrainian plays had ever been translated into English. Consequently Dr. Onyshkevych started planning and compiling an anthology of the translated plays of a number of modern Ukrainian authors for use as a university textbook.
The book contains ten dramas by nine prominent twentieth-century Ukrainian playwrights--Lesia Ukrainka, Volodymyr Vynnychenko, Mykola Kulish (two plays), Ivan Kocherha, Oleksii Kolomiiets, Valerii Shevchuk, and postwar émigré authors Eaghor G. Kostetzky (Ihor Kostetsky), Liudmyla Kovalenko, and Bohdan Boychuk. It represents an excellent introduction to the study of modern Ukrainian literature, as well as a useful reference for the general study of drama. Dr. Onyshkevych prefaces each translation with brief biobibliographical information about the playwright and an essay about the play itself. This publication is a parallel volume to her Ukrainian-language anthology published by the CIUS Press in 1998.
