Lina Kostenko


Lina Kostenko (Лі́на Косте́нко, 1930) is actively present in the Ukrainian literature for more than 50 years. She is mostly known as a poet, but she has recently become an active publicist as well as a talented prose-writer. In 2010, at the age of 80, she published her first big prosaic work, the novel "Notes by the Ukrainian Lunatic" (Записки українського самашедшого) that immediately became a best-seller among Ukrainian books in 2011. The novel is extremely truthful and emotional, but without unnecessary pathos and sentimentality. It presents an account of the everyday life and spiritual atmosphere in Ukraine in the times of L. Kuchma and the Orange Revolution. The novel is filled with nostalgic allusions to Gogol and Bulgakov. From the point of view of genre and style the novel is a dense combination of fiction, diary, "modern chronicle" and keen publicism. Essentially, it is an extremely talented, unique chronicle of an intelligent's soul in the times of chaos on the background of today's political and spiritual absurdity both in Ukraine and worldwide.

Podarilo sa mi nájsť Ukrajinské zhudobnené romantiky na poéziu tejto autorky. Hudba bola robená od autorov ako L.Telnyuk,O.Bohomolets,Olena Karpenko...Odporúčam si vypočuť aspon jednu ukážku.

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. You can read more about her creation there:

In the former Kostenko depicts the tragic fate of a semilegendary figure in Ukrainian history against the background of the Cossack-Polish War, while the latter deals with the fateful Battle of Berestechko from the same historical period.

Vo svojom diele Berestechko,opisuje Lina Kostenko udalosti bojov, odohraných v roku 1651,v meste Berestechko vo Volhynia. Podarilo sa mi nájsť video,kde sú fotografie odohraných bojov. Zaujimavý pohľad do minulosti týchto miest,kde sa kedysi bojovalo určite zaujme aj Vás. Dočítal som sa,že na Ukrajine sa dodnes beseduje ohľadom tejto bitky.

17 December 2010
This is the first prose novel by Lina Kostenko and her first new book for the last 20 years. The book was presented by Ivan Malkovych and Lina Kostenko.On the eve of St. Nicholas Day, ”Diary of a Ukrainian Madman” by Lina Kostenko, one of the most anticipated books in the Ukrainian literature was presented.

"to correlate Ukraine with the world, a human being with Ukraine and with the world”. “This is not a “chicklit”. This is a surrealistic Babylon of the contemporary world,” she said.

Tento príspevok som si vybral preto,lebo si myslím že už v r.2010 sa Lina Kostenko zaoberala problémom Ukrajiny,v ktorom sa nachádza dnes. Chcela vytvoriť prepojenie Ukrajiny a sveta,"to correlate Ukraine with the world" Myslím,že predpokladala čo bude nasledovať.

Ďalšia z jej konferencií sa konala pri príležitosti jej životného jubilea. Získal som video z tejto konferencie.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6aHxaTSmRy8
Kto sa započúva bližšie,rozpráva o prezentácii knižky,ale aj o prezentácii bytia ľudí.Ako som už spomínal,už dávnejšie sa vyjadrovala k Ukrajinskej kríze,ktorá ako vidíme napokon nastala. Myslím si,že aj v pokročilom veku,stále uvažuje racionálne a správne.

One of the poems of Lina Kostenko is called "The Wings":

"It's true. Those who have wings don't need the ground.
If there is no land, there will be sky."

Yulia Tymoshenko:
Lina Kostenko isn’t just a great poet, but a real moral authority.
For me and millions of Ukrainians you are not just a great poet, but a real moral authority, someone who even during Soviet times could be free, wasn’t afraid of standing up to the authorities, spoke in defense of Ukraine. I know that you don’t like praise, but believe me, your talent and courage are worthy of a bow.

Красивое стихотворение Лины Костенко "Осінь жагуча"

Перевод с украинского
Евгения Пугачева

Осень страстная

Устав от страсти, опочило лето,
устали руки в пламени ночей.
Как женщина, что ласкою согрета,
лежит у лета осень на плече.

Уже дозрела чувство до изхода.
И пышет жар на томности крыле.
И торжествует мудрый гений рода,
всего живого на живой земле.

А лето спит. На утро осень встанет -
в косе янтарной прядка седины,
могучи чресла золотого стана,
идёт – аж прогибаютця ланы.

Близняшки-зерна тулятся в покосы,
бегут толпою розы по двору,
спят безмятежно сливы-нефритосы,
спят яблоки, и раса жёлтых груш.

Рвёт синий ветер белые постромики.
А в сердце лета – щедрый солнцепад.
Как слитки солнца на сухой соломке
лежат цитрины, груши, виноград.

Лич загустеет в гроздьях перегретых.
А ляжет снег на охладелость дней,
и пылький сон влюбившегося лета
зимою бродит в молодом вине.
