Summary

Masterfully fulfilled by Peter Fedynsky, Voice of America journalist and expert on Ukrainian studies, this first ever English translation of the complete Kobzar brings out Ukraine's rich cultural heritage.
 
As a foundational text, The Kobzar has played an important role in galvanizing the Ukrainian identity and in the development of Ukraine’s written language and Ukrainian literature. The first editions had been censored by the Russian czar, but the book still made an enduring impact on Ukrainian culture. There is no reliable count of how many editions of the book have been published, but an official estimate made in 1976 put the figure in Ukraine at 110 during the Soviet period alone. That figure does not include Kobzars released before and after both in Ukraine and abroad. A multitude of translations of Shevchenko’s verse into Slavic, Germanic and Romance languages, as well as Chinese, Japanese, Bengali, and many others attest to his impact on world culture as well. The poet is honored with more than 1250 monuments in Ukraine, and at least 125 worldwide, including such capitals as Washington, Ottawa, Buenos Aires, Warsaw, Moscow and Tashkent.

    Originally released in 2015, this re-rerelease packs the same punch as the first version, but makes an even greater connection with the soul of the reader. Each piece has been re-seen and revamped to reflect the author’s continuing journey with his partner, Samantha King, without whom this book would not exist. Samantha is the muse, the “she” the writer speaks of; she is every woman who has felt like she wasn’t good enough, and every woman who struggles to find love.

    We are all connected, our lives are framed by relationships we form and we are forever affected by the ripples they create. We feel for others and they feel for us, these are the ties that bind us and the roots that ground us. From birth to death we are all searching for connection and once we find one we are changed. You are not an island, I am not an Island.

    Ernest Miller Hemingway was born on July 21st in a Chicago suburb.  Much of his work bestrides the best literature of the 20th Century.  Indeed 1954 saw him win the Nobel Prize for Literature.  Classics such as A Farewell To Arms, The Old Man & The Sea and The Sun Also Rises are on most ‘must read’ lists.  Ultimately his life spiralled out of his control and he committed suicide in the summer of 1961.  Here we publish a small collection of his poems and 3 three short stories.
