“The measure of Pavlo Tychyna’s preeminence in the history of twentieth-century Ukrainian literature is perhaps best conveyed by the fact that he is considered the outstanding poet of his time, and arguably of this century, by both Soviet and non-Soviet readers and critics. Apart from this point of convergence, however, the understanding and reception of Tychyna and his poetry is marked by profound oppositions and often virulent disputes.”
Also included is a selected bibliography and biographical and critical studies, compiled by Dr. George G. Grabowicz.
