Belarusian Literature



The contemporary Belarusian literature finds itself in a situation of a strong competition with the volumes of book production in Russia and translations of the world literature. The term "national literature" in Belarus today is specific for its literary works, developing in the context of a formal bilingualism, which, in practice, represents the predominance of Russian language. As far as the genre structure is concerned, Belarus is not an exception in the world trends, aiming towards "light" genres (detective novels of all kind, fantasy novels, etc.). From the point of view of topics, in the "high quality" literature, prevailing topics usually are: World War II, Chernobyl, the Belarusian countryside, also with new motives appearing: general facts on ongoing processes and the current life in Belarusian cities. Besides that, experimentation in style and form is present.

What is significant for the contemporary Belarusian literature is the co-existence of two forms of literary works: "official" and "alternative". The first of the two is basically represented by members of The Association of Writers of Belarus led by Mikalai Charhinets. The second – The Association of Belarusian Writers. The poet and prose writer, Uladzimir Niakliaeu is considered the main opponent. However, the contemporary literature is rather a literature of "individualists", out of whom each creates their own art world and that is why hardly any institutional affiliation influences the creative work of real artists.

Germany has donated a part of the books from its exhibition at the 21st edition of the Minsk International Book Fair to Belarusian schools and libraries, BelTA has learnt.
The official ceremony of the German literature donation took place on 6 February. In particular, books for children and the youth in the German language as well as bilingual books were donated to Orsha School No.20 and Minsk Gymnasium No.20. The National Science and technology Library got the books about Germany. Donation of the books after the Minsk book fair has become a good tradition for the Embassy of Germany, which supports Belarusian partner organizations and institutions. The campaign aims to popularize the German language and culture.

Bieloruská internetová knižnica Kamunikat je prístupná od roku 2007 a vznikla aj vďaka finančnej podpore programu Poľská pomoc, ktorý funguje pod záštitou poľského Ministerstva zahraničných vecí. Stránka knižnice slúži ako skvelý nástroj na oboznámenie sa s bieloruským literárnym životom - knihami, autormi, periodikami, vydavateľstvami, taktiež si na nej možno vypočuť diskusie na témy týkajúce sa bieloruskej literatúry a kultúry.

In short, literature is modern, but not very popular. Authors who put books to bed do not want to popularize their works. So people don't know much about contemporary Belarusian art.

Список поэтов и писателей Белоруссии

Писатели и поэты Беларуси — это писатели и поэты, работавшие в различные времена на территории Беларуси в современных границах, независимо от их национальности и языка, на котором они создавали литературные произведения.

Писателей и поэтов Беларуси необходимо отличать от белорусских писателей — писателей, создававших произведения на белорусском языке (при этом не учитываются их происхождение, гражданство и место проживания).

Alexander Lukashenko, president of Belarus urges Belarusian writers to create interesting books for contemporary readers. During his speech he stated: I wonder why we have not seen the books like ‘War and Peace’, ‘Virgin Soil Upturned’ in the past 20-30 years. Does it mean the lack of talents? Or is this due to the objective life conditions when a book stops to be the main source of information?''

My questions are: Do you think urging writers can help them to write ''more interesting'' or ''better'' books? Do you think this is the right way of improving quality of literature? Just think about it. I'll be happy to read your opinion so we can discuss it.

Ako sa v úvodnom článku spomína, súčasná literatúra je výrazne ovplyvnená súčasnou spoločenskou, politickou a sociálnou situáciou ako aj životom v Bielorusku vôbec.
Fotograf Vitus Saloshanka vo svojom fotoprojekte reflektuje zmeny v tradičnom živote na vidieku a predmestiach Minska objavením sa takzvaných "nových boháčov" (nouveau riche) a ich výraznej sebaprezentácií svojimi obydliami. Mnohé z nich pripomínajú zámky a vidiecke šľachtické sídla z minulosti. Nielenže vytvárajú utopický dojem a zvýrazňujú narastajúcu sociálnu nerovnosť, ale podľa autorových slov odrážajú aktuálne témy súčasného pátranie Bielorusov po svojej identite a postavení v spoločnosti.

Viktar Martsinovich je bieloruský spisovateľ , novinár a učiteľ, ktorý maturoval v čase , keď líderom krajiny bol Alexander Lukashenko a skonsolídoval krajinu do post- sovietského Bieloruska . V roku 2009 napísal svoj anti-utopický román Paranoia, ktorý mne osobne, podľa obsahov, ktoré som čítala , pripomína knihu Georga Orwella 1984, čo môže byť odrazom práve na politický režim , ktorý tento spisovateľ stihol zažiť.
.Napísal tiež romány ako Sfagnum a "Мова". V súčasnej dobe sa Viktor venuje internetovej literatúre a takisto sa stretáva s ľuďmi pri rôznych diskusiách. Nedávno, (1.10. 2015) sa so svojimi kolegami zo spisovateľskej scény napríklad s ukrajinským spisovateľom Andrejom Lubkom vybral na takúto diskusiu, kde sa s poslucháčmi rozprávali na témy ako "роль писателя в обществе", čiže rola spisovateľa v spoločnosti, "границы литературы"- hranice literatúry a podobne.

The literature of Belarus has historically had to cope with the encroachment of Soviet influence, and a persistent lack of freedom of speech. Despite this, as Lindsay Parnell discovers, a national literary tradition has emerged which foregrounds Belarusian national identity and language, whilst focusing on the traumatic legacy of conflict.

Šota Rustaveli ,žil v 12. storočí. bol gruzínsky básnik, pokladaný za jedného z najväčších gruzínskych klasikov. Je autorom gruzínskeho národného eposu Junák v tigrej koži (Vepkhist'q'aosani), jedného z najvýznamnejších diel gruzínskej poézie, v ktorom ospevuje rytierské ideály. Rustaveli je pravdepodobne aj autorom niekoľkých ďalších lyrických básní a epigramov.

O jeho živote sa vie len málo, bol zrejme vzdelaný a vysoko postavený šľachtic na dvore Tamary Gruzínskej. Posledné roky života prežil pravdepodobne v Jeruzaleme, ale ani jedna z týchto informácií nie je úplne istá.

Jeho dielo Junák v tigrej koži bolo preložené do mnohých svetových jazykov. Napríklad do angličtiny.

Moris Pocchišvili (* 1930) je gruzínsky básnik a prekladateľ.

Jeho básne sú plné moderných prekvapivých obrazov, no nespreneverujú sa gruzínskym literárnym tradíciám, nepopierajú ich. Sú meditatívne, často zachádzajú do ríše detstva. Nevyhýbajú sa tragickému v živote, no napriek tomu sú prehriate optimizmom. Básnikovým hobby je maliarstvo, jeho básnické vidiny sú plastické. Mnohé autorove verše sú zhudobnené a spievajú sa po celom Gruzínsku.[1]
Mesto Dolný Kubín mu za preklad Krvavých sonetov Pavla Országha Hviezdoslava udelilo čestné občianstvo a Hviezdoslavovu cenu.

I would like to share one article about contemporary Belarusian literature. The author of it, is last winner of Visegrad Eastern Partnership Literary Award, Ihar Babkou. You may learn a lot of interesting information, f.e.: The new literature is the literature that reiterates its urban origins, modernity, sophistication and aestheticism. The new artists mastered the language and culture, attained them consciously, as a new cultural code, in which and through which various curious things could be deciphered. In other words, Belarusian literature is regarded as a project, a place to which one flees and a Utopia. Or about new wave which consists of three generations. Another information you can find HERE

It’s given for the best book written in prison. The founders of the award plan to reward it annually until the time it will be topical but they hope it will lose urgency as soon as possible.).

Tеатр Янки Купалы

Яанка Купала родился 25 июня 1882 в Минской области. Был поэтом-переводчиком и драматургом. Например, фильм-спектакль по одноименной пьесе Янки Купалы – Павлинка – стал известным по всей стране. Даже некоторые магазины названы в его честь. Сюжет этого фильма таков: девушка Павлинка влюбилась в учителя Якима. Собака зарыта в том, что их родители не согласны на их свадьбу. У нас похожее дело тяжелой любви описывает Маргита Фигули в книге "три Каштановых коня".

Veľvyslanec Vladimír Grigoryev bol ten kto prišiel s plánom ako z realizovať tento nápad a tak dostal k dispozícií prostriedky na realizáciu projektu.

One of translation of Kupala´s poems; From Forebears' Ages, Long Since Gone

From forebears' ages, long since gone,
A heritage has come to me,
Among strange folk, among my own,
Me it caresses, motherly.

Of it to me dream-fables sing
Of first thaw-patches, vernally,
The woods' September murmuring,
An oak-tree lone, half burned away.

Memories of it, like storks aclack
Upon the line have woken me,
Of a mossed fence, old, gone to wrack,
Fallen near the village, brokenly;

The dreary bleat of lambs that pours
Out in the pasture, endlessly,
The caw of the assembled crows,
On the graves in the cemetery.

And through black night and through white day
I keep, my watch unceasingly,
Lest this my treasure goes astray,
Lest by drones it should eaten be.

I bear it in my living soul
Like torch-flame ever bright for me,
That through deaf darkness to my goal,
Midst vandals it may lighten me.

With it lives my thought-family.
Bringing dreams of sincerity . . .
And its name, all-in-all must be
My native land, my heritage.

A Belarusian novel encourages citizens to question their own role in perpetuating the regime that governs them. This is the main idea of Victor Martinovich's dystopia "Paranoia". This novel is about love in time of dictatorship. The love between a man and a woman is described with freshness, subtlety, depth and joy. In the background is the dark, sinister world of authoritarian rule, with its frozen emotions, unspoken truths, and bizarre understanding of reality - so well entrenched in people’s heads that they are unsure which thoughts and fears are their own and which are implanted into their minds by overbearing power.The Belarusian authorities’ nervousness is understandable on two counts. First, the regime depicted in the novel is more melodramatic in its behaviour than the current reality (for example, the secret services kill dissenting young people rather than incarcerating them or expelling them from universities). Thus the novel runs against the message of “changing Belarus” the government is keen to present to Europe and the world beyond, to win their confidence and investments. Second, the country portrayed has the atmosphere of a poignant, worried and lonely individual, far from the happy collectivist atmosphere the Belarusian authorities seek to project. (MY SOURCE)

Life of Vasil Bykov (Vasil Uładzimiravič Bykaŭ) in the USSR after World War 2.

Vasil Bykov rightfully holds a place in the front row of the front-generation writers. Bykov's literary achievement lies in his sternly realistic, depictions of World War II battles. In the ferociousness of encounter they face moral dilemmas both face-to-face with their enemies and within their own Soviet world burdened by ideological and political constraints. He started his career in the mid-1950s, when he started work as journalist for "Hrodna Pravda" newspaper. During that time, his first novellas were coming out of his work of which the most famous are "Sotnikaŭ", "The Obelisk" and "To Go and Not Return". In one of his english translated novellas the "Sign of Misfortune" he challenged the official version of the war. This brought upon him vicious accusations of "false humanism" from some Red Army generals and the Communist Party press. Nevertheless, he became one of the most admired writers in the USSR and in 1980 he was awarded the title of People's Writer of the Belarusian SSR.

Translation of Maxim Badanovich´s "Зорка Венера" to English language:

Venus, new-risen above the broad skyline,
Brings with her bright-shining memories of love.
Do you recall, when we met for the first time
Venus new-risen above?

From that time forth, evermore skyward gazing,
Seeking that planet, I'd scan heaven o'er,
Within me, a deep silent love for you blazing,
From that time forth, evermore.

But the time of our parting draws near, ever nearer,
Thus does our fate, does our fortune appear;
Deeply, profoundly, I love you, my dear one,
But the time of our parting draws near.

In that far country, my love buried deeply,
I shall live drearily, yet high above
I shall gaze on that planet each night, vigil keeping,
In that far country, my love.

Gaze upon Venus once more, though far distant
One from another, there mingled we'll pour
Our glance, let love flower if but for an instant...
Gaze upon Venus once more!

Ales Bialiatski – a head of Belarus Human Rights Centre Viasna, Vice president of International Federation of Human Rights and nowadays former political prisoner1 wrote a book of critical literary essays “Enlightened by Belarusian issue.” He started to write it in 2011 before arrest and kept on the work during his imprisonment by sending texts in letters. Through this book the author brought for the first time the term "Belarusian prison literature" into modern belarusian literary studies. Moreover he writes about almost unkown author from 1920s’ Khviados Shynkler who perished in WWII and in the book are also reviews on different poetry works such as “Stremka” written by his friend Siarzhuk Sys.
Palina Stsepanenka who composed the book describes Bialatski’s reaction after its publication: ‘‘On 6 February I received a letter from Ales, he writes that the publication of a book was a cultural shock for him, as he has never even dreamed that there would be such a book.‘‘2 She also mentions that the author was very pleased by the fact that the Uladzimir Vishneuski made the cover.

The fate of "Enlightened by the Belarusian Issue" by Ales Bialiatski
Belarusian customs officers at the Belarusian - Lithuanian border crossing “Kamenny Loh” seized 40 copies of "Enlightened by the Belarusian Issue" in July 2013 from human rights activist Tatsiana Reviaka.1 Ashmiany Customs Office requested the book for examination and the expert committee came to conclusion that the work ‘‘could damage the image of the Republic of Belarus.‘‘ 2
Of course that the conclusion seemed suspicious and I personally ask a question what are the concrete passages in the book of critical literary essays which might damage the image of the Republic of Belarus. The truth builds, not damages. Maybe this is the fact that ‘‘expert commitee“ should accept at first.

Svetlana Alexievich, a Belarussian journalist and prose writer known for deeply researched works about female Russian soldiers in World War II and the aftermath of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster, won the Nobel Prize in Literature on Thursday (6.10.2015) “for her polyphonic writings, a monument to suffering and courage in our time,” the Swedish Academy announced.
Ms. Alexievich, 67, is the 14th woman to win the literature prize, and one of just a few Nobel laureates to be recognized for nonfiction. While the Nobel committee has occasionally awarded the prize to philosophers and historians, including Bertrand Russell and Winston Churchill, it has been more than half a century since a dedicated nonfiction writer has won what many regard as literature’s most prestigious award.

A book Paranoia, by a belurusian writer Victor Martinovich, is a novel about love in time of dictatorship. Two days after it hits Minsk bookshops and Belarus’ Internet retailers, it is suddenly “unavailable.” It is as if the book never existed. But it does, and free electronic versions of the elusive novel are now spawning on the Net. Interesting is that the book never mentions Belarus. The dictator is not the president but the secret-service minister, and his character is deliberately crafted to differ from the current Belarusian leader. The author, opens the novel with the pointed statement “All characters are fictional.” Yet Minsk’s landmarks are tangible in his social dystopia.

ANDREI KHADANOWICH - POEMS
LAKE SCHOOL OF POETRY

There was a lake,
The terminal station of suburban train.

There was a sky,
The terminal station of his flippant dreams,
Six days of travel across the rain.

And there was a sun on the seventh day,
And he saw
That the previous six were worse.

And there were sails,
Steamers and buoys
With the warning “no swimming”.

And they were alone, only two of them in the world
But for natatoriums –
Gulls and school rovers.

And she was topless,
Wearing fashionable shorts,
With an apple in the pocket,
Protruding at one side,
As a tennis woman
Preparing for the first serving…

No need for the second one.

ANDREI KHADANOWICH - POEMS
NEVER COME BACK
The next stop is
The indoor flea market.
And you’re threading your way
Between parked bicycles
Afraid of knocking into one
And setting the alarm off,
While the music in your headphones
Is mixing up with street sounds
In the pulse of your music,
And your inner guide tells you:
The next stop is
The indoor flea market.
And the local all-round expert
Is waving two fingers at you,
Either “Victory” or “Quick!
Two Euros for everything
You didn’t even know you needed
To make your life complete—satisfaction guaranteed!”
It’s an Innovations catalogue come to life:
A three-string guitar for playing songs you only half know;
A rake with interchangeable prongs:
Clear the garden, then massage your aching back;
Skates for the short-sighted and anti-tank galoshes;
Traffic lights for the home—no more hallway pile-ups;
A wall-mounted cuckoo-toaster;
A Swiss Army watch with a pull-out corkscrew;
A Singer typewriter that makes carbon copies
Of up to five pairs of trousers;
Wind-up gramophone whisky —78 staggers a minute;
Pornographic cards of secret aerodromes…
And you are almost in the state
When trams stop right outside
The door of your consciousness
And take you to the next floor.
A circle is formed.
There is no way out.
The next stop
Is always the indoor flea market.

Literature in Belarus is a political dialogue prohibited in modern Belarusan society. It is an artistic battle with the State ideology and lack of freedom, a balancing act between East and West, serving as a refuge for tender hearts confronted with a hard reality. At the same time, Belarusan literature opposes aesthetic censorship; it is a distinctive observation of the human soul, a journey in the mostly unfavourable conditions of Eastern Europe, wrote Pavał Kaściukievič, Art-director and International projects' coordinator of Kniharnia Łohvinaŭ Publishing House and Literary Center,in the article Go Bisons! 693 words about Belarusian literature
In my opionion the author used very accurate words for description the contemporary literary situation in Belarus. Moreover, Publishing House Łohvinaŭ in recent past went through hard times when government „gifted“ it with fine around 60 OOO dollars. The bookstore survived thanks to crowdfunded campaign.

The main idea of the book "Paranoia" (Victor Martinovich)
Paranoia’s strongest point is the truthful, melancholy portrait of the ambiguous realities and confused attitudes of people forced to live under a watchful paternalistic state. Under communism, dissidents could pay lip-service to the regime while preserving in seclusion their own understanding of reality. Under dictatorship-induced paranoia, individual and social truths become so mingled that people begin to lose faith in their own judgment; their personal phobias are multiplied by the fears created by the secret services, so that they do not know where true reality begins and ends.

Viktar Martinovich, author of a novel painting a nightmarish surveillance society with some distant parallels to Belarus, was surprised to find his book on sale at almost every bookstore when he returned from India in November after a month’s vacation.
Within a few weeks, after some 1,800 of the 3,000 printed copies had been sold, the novel disappeared from bookshelves.
“I can write a new novel about how the book was banned – Paranoia Over Paranoia,” the 32-year-old author said.

Улица Герцена в Минске.

Алекса́ндр Ива́нович Ге́рцен родился шестого апреля 1812 года в Москве. Его отец был богатым человеком, а его матери было всего шестнадцать лет, когда Герцен родился. Из-за этого ему придумали фамилию Герсев из немецкого «сын сердца».
С 1842 года начал писать для журнала Белинского. Известные произведения Герцена: роман «Кто виноват?», рассказ «Мимоездом», повесть «Доктор Крупов», повесть «Сорока-воровка» и другие.

Умер в 1870 году от воспаления легких в Париже.

Интересно, что Беларусь он никогда не посещал, одна из Минских улиц несёт его имя. И это не всё. Улицы Герцена есть и в Витебске, Гомеле, Гродно, Лепеле, Бобруйске, Орше. Также в Гомеле и Бресте есть переулок Герцена. А еще в Гомеле — центральная городская библиотека им.А.И.Герцена.
Философия его жизни была близка коммунизму и, может, поэтому и в других странах бывшего СССР есть улицы, названые в честь Герцена, даже в Словакии в Братиславе.

Известно, что Минск вообще не любил и никогда его не посещал, но сидел в тюрьме из-за религиозных дел. Большинство своих произведений написал в Лютинке. Одно из них "Лютинка, или Шведы в Литве" связано с местной легендой о иезуитском монастыре и большом сокровищии иезуитских монахов которое до сих пор не удалось никому найти.

ANDREI KHADANOVICH
PROGRESS IN LITERATURE

After all a French story-teller
had a point
when he swore his allegiance
to progress in literature.
Contemporary Homeros
does not depend
on power outage,
he can easily run
a new National library,
though at heart he envies
Ronsard and Beethoven:
after all the best readings
were organized by the Deaf Association.
Sappho
does not run for the position
of the tenth muse any longer,
now she is all about cinematography;
and though unsuccessful in private life,
she got a Nobel prize
for the promotion of political correctness,
leaving behind Verlaine, Rimbaud and George Sand.
5 | Khadanovich
Old Anacreont
has quit drinking
and can only dream of young girls,
in return he is on the “must-read” list
of all Greek schools and universities.
Villon
experienced to the full
the omnipotence of legal experts,
though his country did not abolish
death penalty,
and even if it does –
what could possibly be changed
by a handful of dissidents
with slogans “Where is Villon?”
Hugo, rejected by everybody,
learned from his own experience
that expression “you are a hemorrhoid on my ass”
is not only figurative.
On the other hand now we have show business
and one can always write lyrics for pop songs.
Goncourt
writes a live diary on the internet
and suffers from split personality.
Faulkner and Marquez
are rivals on the tourist market
offering hot tours
to Yoknapatawpha and Macondo.
Only Catullus
didn’t go through any drastic changes:
just like two thousand and something years ago,
he is mourning over the death of his mistress’s sparrow.

Interview with Andrei Khadanovich: here

Iveta Kureková said...

Khadanovich writes lyrics for the rock band Indiga and the chansonnier Zmitsier Vajtsiushkevich. He has recently turned to free verse and his work can be called post-modernist in its elaborate word games, use of quotations from classic Belarusian and Soviet poetry and Western rock music and unexpected twists on familiar sayings. Khadanovich also translates poetry from English, French, Polish, Russian and Ukrainian.

Post-Impressionism

I remember when I was a child
I’d try and climb up on my granny’s stove —
And my arms would sink up to the shoulders
In the black sea of sunflower seeds
She was trying to get dried.

I remember when I was older
The seeds were drying really quickly
And my girlfriend wasn’t shy
About tucking in right in front of me,
Hulling them with her teeth,
And a husk would be hanging off her lip,
And didn’t put me off kissing her one bit.

And I was removing it,
Carefully, like a bomb disposal officer,
Because the first touch
Could easily be the last one,
And I was looking forward to the sequel:
On the stove some new seeds
Were almost dry.

That’s why I know
As much as Van Gogh about sunflowers
And about pumpkins
A lot more.

Celkom zaujímavé by mohli byť jazyky, v akých spisovateľ písal. Jednalo sa nie len o bieloruštinu ale aj o ruštinu.

Erich Németh said...

The New York Review of Books expressed it´s opinion on Nobel Prize Winner Svetlana Alexievich.

Erich Németh said...

From my point of view tt´s possible that her books were little too one-sided, cause she grew up in the "Post Great Patriotic War/WW2 Stalinist Soviet Union" which had great effect on her life and her generation. She grew up in connection with Russia, Ukraine and Belorusia. Her family was divided between those who fought for Soviet Union and those who were supporting Ukrainian Nationalists. We can never assume her creations are trustworthy, but we can accept it as "Another-point of view". In fact, I am happy that she is strong and tries to do "any-means-necessary" to have the people not witness the opression of ex-Soviet Russia regime.

Essays by Vasil Bykaw and Ivan Shamyakin gained prominence for their deromanticization of warfare. Pacifism and tolerance were questioned by none of the more or less significant authors of that time. The presence of this theme in works of art was even intrusive. The authorities tolerated that pacifism. In Soviet Belarusian culture, it was one of the manifestations of conformism, a substitute for open dissent, upon which nobody among the front-rank figures of Belarusian culture ventured. That pacifism was so popular and consistent that it became one of the cultural and political canons and turned into a consciousness-determining phenomenon.

Decline of national culture and also of literature is one of attribute of non-functional society. But, how to proove it? How tu start it up again?

He said: “Throughout the history of our nation, literature has always been the means of learning about the world and educating a personality.

Vasil Bykov was a Belarus prose writer and playwright. He was born in 1924 in Bychki village in the Vitebsk region.

Bykov’s creative vision centres on the drama and tragedy of war, and is distinguished by the richly expressed thoughts and feelings of his characters, developed in compelling narratives with a thoughtful philosophical subtext.

Martin Svitka said...

Vasil Bykov rose to popularity with the publication of his story Third Rocket in 1962. In the 1960s he published The Alpine Ballad and The Dead Don't Feel Pain, and in the 1970s Sotnikov, The Obelisk, Live to See the Dawn and To Go and Not to Return. These works have marked Vasil Bykov as one of the greatest writers about war in the 20th century.
