Lina Kostenko

Lina Kostenko (Ukrainian: Ліна Василівна Костенко, born on March 19, 1930 in Rzhyshchiv, Kiev Oblast, in the Ukrainian SSR of the Soviet Union) is a Ukrainian poet and writer, recipient of the Shevchenko Award (1987). .

Kostenko is a leading representative of Ukrainian poets of the sixties known as Shestydesiantnyky (dissidents). This group started publishing during the 1950s and reached its apex during the early 1960s. It was during the 1950s in which Kostenko published her first poems in major Ukrainian periodicals.

Kostenko was born in a family of teachers. In 1936, she moved from Rzhyshchiv to Kiev where the future poet finished her secondary education.

Lina graduated with distinction from the Maxim Gorky Literature Institute in Moscow in 1956. Following her graduation she published 3 collections of poetry in 1957, 1958, and 1961. These books became immensely popular among her Ukrainian readers, however they also forced her into publication silence as she was unwilling to submit to Soviet authorities.

It wasn't until 1977 (16 years later) that her next major collection was published. She followed this with several more collections and a children's book called The Lilac King. In 1979 she followed with one of her greatest works the historical novel in verse, Marusia Churai, about at 17th century Ukrainian folksinger. Her most recent collection is Berestechko, a book length historical poem.

Lina Kostenko. Zapysky ukrains'koho samashedshoho. (Notes by the Ukrainian Lunatic)


This is the first new book by Lina Kostenko during the recent 20 years of silence and her first prose novel. The novel is written in the person of a 35-year old computer programmer, who against the background of his personal drama captiously, deeply and painfully scans all dislocations of our globalized time.
