Why is Ukrainian Literature a Part of European Heritage?

The lecture by Tetyana Ogarkova who is a PhD in comparative literature, essayist, journalist, lecturer at the National University of “Kyiv-Mohyla Academy” and head of Foreign Outreach Department at Ukraine Crisis Media Center tells how Ukrainian literature is connected with the European tradition.

Starting from the late 18th century and Kotliarevsky and up to the 20th century and writers who opposed the Soviet regime. Throughout all these years Ukrainian literature has proven to be unique and in profound dialogue with the European context.

That is why it is still timely and definitely worth being translated into foreign languages.
