About this Item

Original Wrappers. 8vo. 95 pages. 22 cm. First Editon. About the life and poetry of Olena Teliha written by Dmytro Dontsov, a fellow member of the Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists . Olena Teliha was a Ukrainian Nationalist poet and leader. "From 1933 [Olena Teliha] contributed to the nationalist journal Vistnyk (Lviv) . In Cracow from 1939 to 1941, she headed the literary-artistic society Zarevo and together with Oleh Olzhych worked in the cultural sector of the Leadership of Ukrainian Nationalists. With the outbreak of the war between Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union she moved to Lviv and then left with the OUN expeditionary groups for Kyiv in 1941. There she became head of the Writers' Union and editor of the literary weekly Litavry (Kyiv) . When the Nazi regime closed down Litavry's parent newspaper, "Ukrainske slovo" (1941) , and replaced it with the pro-regime "Nove ukrainske slovoa", Teliha refused to co-operate. She was arrested by the Gestapo and shot, together with other Ukrainian nationalists." (Encyclopedia of Ukraine) In 2005, researcher Kateryna Kryvoruchko discovered previously unknown poetry written by Teliha. Included in the collection is "Drained That Goblet Thousands of Times" believed to have been written as late as 1940, two years before Teliha's death. "'Drained That Goblet Thousands Of Times' is a symbolic poem written in response to the allegation that the poet led on the theoretician of Ukrainian nationalism, Dmytro Dontsov. "The newly discovered poem contains a response to Olena's ill-wishers: she and the unnamed man (most likely Dontsov) are friends, comrades in arms, and nothing more." (Tysiachna, The Long Return, 2005, day. Kiev. Ua) Dmytro Dontsov was a political journalist, editor, literary critic and theorist for the Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists. After emigrating to Canada in the late 1940's, his strong opposition to Russia, and unending support of Ukrainian independence was still present in his writing and work in continued support of the Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists.
