9781442643321: The Intellectual as Hero in 1990s Ukrainian Fiction

The 1990s were a period of tremendous artistic vigour, experimentation, and liberation for Ukrainian culture. The artists who emerged at this time unleashed a tidal wave of creativity that deliberately and aggressively reshaped inherited models. In this first English monograph on contemporary Ukrainian literature, Mark Andryczyk provides an in-depth analysis of the cultural explosion that engulfed Ukraine in its first decade of independence.

The Intellectual as Hero in 1990s Ukrainian Fiction weaves a fascinating narrative full of colourful characters by examining the prose of today's leading writers. Andryczyk delves into the role of the intellectual in forging a post-Soviet Ukrainian identity, and follows these protagonists as they soar and stumble in pursuit of redefining their creative realm. In addition to introducing readers to vibrant literary gems, this book explores the artistic tendencies that determined the course of the Ukrainian cultural scene in the 1990s, and continue to shape it today.

About the Author:

Mark Andryczyk obtained his PhD in Ukrainian Language and Literature from the University of Toronto.

Review:

‘The only monograph in English dedicated in its entirety to contemporary Ukrainian literature. More are bound to follow, but Andryczyk’s study is more than worthy of its landmark status.’

(Uilleam Blacker Slavonic and East European Review; vol 91:02:2013)

‘The book provides a reliable guide to some of the richest and most innovative
works written in Ukrainian.&rsquo

(Myroslav Shkandrij, University of Manitoba Slavic Review, Vol. 72, No. 2 (SUMMER 2013), pp. 397-398)

‘Andryczyk’s book will be of interest to scholars and students studying contemporary Ukrainian literature and various tendencies and developments that dominate the recent Ukrainian cultural scene.’

(Olha Tytarenko Slavic & East European Journal, vol 58:04:2014)
