Літературно-малярський дискурс творчості Богдана Лепкого
This monograph draws parallels between the literary works of prominent western Ukrainian modernist poet and writer Bohdan Lepky (1872-1941) and the world of pictorial art. One of the founding members of the modernist Moloda Muza writers’ group, Lepky was the author of close to twenty collections of predominantly neoromantic and lyrical (elegiac and introspective) poetry as well as several books of prose and impressionist prose poems. Some of his poems were put to music by Ukrainian composers; the requiem song ‘Zhuravli’ (Cranes), composed by his brother, Lev Lepky, is the most famous of them. A professor at Cracow University (from 1932 the holder of the chair of Ukrainian literature) he was also a major promoter of Ukrainian culture in Polish circles. Examining some of Lepky’s lesser known literary works, Natalia Havdyda analyses the influence of paintings by primarily Polish artists on Lepky’s poetic imagery and on the motifs of his prose works.
