159 pp. Very slight wear (nearly unnoticeable indentations) to covers, internally as new. Signed and dated by the author, 1997. "Few poets have shaped the cultural destiny of their country more profoundly than Taras Shevchenko (1814-1861) shaped that of Ukraine. His magically persuasive poetry taught his contemporaries to perceive and despise the injustice suffered by people and nations in the empire of the tsars. -- Dmytro Nytczenko's biography of the poet was first published in 1963 and attracted favourable reviews in the Ukrainian press. Thoroughly revised and supplemented with factual notes for Yuri Tkach's translation, it presents the English-speaking reader with a lively and informative introduction to Shevchenko's life and age." -- Dr Marko Pavlyshyn, Monash University
