Lesya Ukrainka: perhaps the greatest Ukrainian writer in history

A feminist, environmentalist, and one of the greatest dramatists in European literature, Lesya Ukrainka’s works are now getting new attention from Ukraine and beyond. Her texts are not widely translated into foreign languages – a gap that certainly needs to be filled. Our conversation about Lesya Ukrainka is part of our new series Discovering Ukrainian culture.

Hosts: Volodymyr Yermolenko, Ukrainian philosopher and journalist, chief editor of UkraineWorld.org, and Tetyana Ogarkova, Ukrainian scholar and journalist, in charge of international outreach at the Ukraine Crisis Media Centre.
