Lina Kostenko — the contemporary Ukrainian writer (Ліна Костенко)

The famous Ukrainian poet Lina Vasylivna Kostenko was born the 19th of
March, 1930 in the town of Rzhyshchev in Kyiv region in the teachers’
family. Since 1936 she lived in Kyiv. Lina Kostenko got education in the
Kyiv Pedagogical Institute. And in 1956 she graduated from the Moscow
Literary Institute. Lina Kostenko belongs to the generation that is
usually called «the children of the war». That is why the problems of
war and peace are very often raised in her works.

The Chornobyl tragedy did not leave Lina Kostenko careless. The new
topic became interesting for her — the problem of ecology. But the
majority of Lina Kostenko’s works are dedicated to the historical life
of Ukraine.

The most famous Lina Kostenko’s creation is the novel in verses
«Marusya Chury». In the centre of the novel is the image of legendary
Marusya Chury — the poet and the author of many Ukrainian folk songs.
The action takes place in the period of the liberation war of the
Ukrainian people that was headed by Bogdan Khmelnitsky. Lina Kostenko
depicted the tragic love story of Marusya and Grits Bobrenko.

Being devoted to national traditions Lina Kostenko proves the immortal
spiritual values of the Ukrainian people.

The famous Ukrainian poet Lina Vasylivna Kostenko was born on the 19th
of March, 1930 in the town of Rzhyshchev in Kyiv region in the teachers’
family. Since 1936 she lived in Kyiv where she graduated from the
secondary school. Lina Kostenko continued her education in the Kyiv
Pedagogical Institute. As a matter of fact she did not want to stop at
this level and in 1956 she graduated from the Moscow Literary Institute.
Such Ukrainian outstanding writers as Taras Shevchenko and Lesya
Ukrainka, I. Karpenko-Kary and M. Kotsubinsky, M. Rylsky and A.
Dovzhenko influenced the creative works of Lina Kostenko. The leading
theme in her poems is the role of an artist and art in the society, its
close connection with the people’s life.

Lina Kostenko belongs to the generation that is usually called «the
children of the war». That is why the problems of war and peace are very
often raised in her works.

The Chornobyl tragedy did not leave Lina Kostenko careless. The new
topic became interesting for her — the problem of ecology.

Nevertheless I would like to admit that the majority of Lina Kostenko’s
works are dedicated to the historical life of Ukraine.

The most famous Lina Kostenko’s creation is the novel in verses «Marusya
Chury». In this work the political, philosophical and esthetic problems
are raised against the national background. In the centre of the novel
is the image oflegendary Marusya Chury — the poet and the author of many
Ukrainian folk songs. In the novel the accent is made on Marusya’s love
to people, her motherland, and her patriotic feelings are underlined as
well. The action takes place in the period of the liberation war of the
Ukrainian people that was headed byBogdan Khmelnitsky. In this context
Lina Kostenko depicted the tragic love story of Marusya and Grits
Bobrenko. It was difficult for Marusya to forgive her beloved for
betraying their feelings, because Grits decided to marry another girl
for the reason she was rich. Marusya made up her mind to commit the
suicide. Accidentally Grits drank the poison prepared by Marusya for
herself.

Lina Kostenko managed to create the perfect picture of psychological,
heroic and romantic life of Marusya Chury and to depict the historical
events in Ukraine in the mid of the 17th century.

nd very vital especially today when the Ukrainians solve the problem of
the national and cultural revival of their country.

That is why it is just to say that Lina Kostenko is the daughter of her
epoch who completely belongs to the contemporaries.
