Uladzimir Arlou

Uladzimir Arlou (1953), Belarusian: Уладзімір Арлоў
Arlou is a poet, prose writer and a historian. He published more than 20 books (1), out of which a short story "Rendezvous at manoeuvres" (Рандэву на манёўрах1992) could be mentioned as it forms a part of the Belarusian literature classes at the secondary schools. His works have mostly a lot to do with the history of Belarus that he tends to promote. Together with Z. Herasimovich, they published a successful album-book The Country Called Belarus (Краіна Беларусь) in 2003, using a popular way to describe the history of Belarus. The book was originally published in the Slovak "Kalligram" publishing house.
Arlou holds several state awards. In 1996, he got the F. Bahushevich Prize by the Belarusian PEN-center for the best historical prose.

Historical writer

Today Uladzimir Arlou is the most popular Belarusian writer covering historical topics. He knows the past of his country to perfection, as every professional historian should. He has an excellent knowledge of the history of his native city, ancient Polotsk, which he has written about in many of his books.

V posledných týždňoch vznikli v Bielorusku diskusie ohľadom podpory bieloruštiny predovšetkým u mladších generácií, ktoré ju už považujú takmer za cudzí jazyk. Aký názor má jeden z popredných bieloruských spisovateľov - Uladzimir Arlou na plány prezidenta A. Lukašenka na zvýšenie počtu vyučovacích hodín bieloruského jazyka hlavne na stredných školách, o tom si už môžete prečítať viac na:

Arlou has built his publishing career in defiance of the Lukashenka regime, and has actively supported the democratic opposition. In 1997 he was dismissed from the state publisher Mastackaja litaratura "for publishing historical and another suspicious literature"; later, in 2007, his works were removed from the national school curiculum. In 2010, his work was recognised as he became the first European Poet of Freedom. source : https://www.opendemocracy.net/author/uladzimir-arlou
