Taras Shevchenko Encyclopedia was presented in Kyiv

Mykola ZHULYNSKY: “After reading this book series Ukrainians will be impressed with how deeply the world of the time of Taras Shevchenko was interested in him, admired him, and tried to learn more about his worldview”

First two volumes of “Taras Shevchenko Encyclopedia” in six volumes – large academic project of Taras Shevchenko Institute of Literature were presented at the National Parliamentary Library of Ukraine on March 5. The authors of the encyclopedia say that the first volume consists of 1,142 articles and the second consists of 1,081 articles that contain comprehensive information about life, artistic work, and personality of Taras Shevchenko, his epoch and surrounding. It is expected that the six volumes will contain the total of 6,500 articles. The lengthy introduction to the encyclopedia was written by Academician Ivan Dziuba. Editorial preparation and design of the book layout was done by the staff of the Department for Shevchenko Studies at the Taras Shevchenko Institute of Literature, National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine. The first two volumes were published by PJSC “Kharkiv Book Factory ‘Hlobus.’” The Day spoke about the ideological value of this book series and the expected public response with the head of the editorial board of “Taras Shevchenko Encyclopedia,” director of the Taras Shevchenko Institute of Literature, Academician Mykola ZHULYNSKY.

“The greatest difficulty of the work on an encyclopedia is that it’s a long-term project. The project was, in fact, started by one group of Shevchenko experts and is now being completed by others. Unfortunately, some of the well-known, reputable scholars, who worked on this encyclopedia, are no longer with us, including Vasyl Shubravsky, Vasyl Borodin, Mykola Pavliuk, and others. We had to get young experts involved – the new generation of Shevchenko experts,” said Zhulynsky in his comment to The Day. “I should admit that the process of articles preparation dedicated to art legacy of Taras Shevchenko was especially difficult. They covered a vast array of art works: we know of more than 800 art works of various genres – from small drawings and portraits to big canvas paintings. I would even say more: Shevchenko remains greatly underestimated as a painter to this day. He is a unique figure of the European level. In the encyclopedia we tried to provide fundamental research not only of the peculiarities of his literary work, but also of his artistic legacy. In this encyclopedia one can find comprehensive answers to the questions: who Shevchenko is, what his environment was like, and how his creative thinking shaped.

“During the project implementation we collaborated with the National Museum of Taras Shevchenko and many other academic institutions not only in Ukraine, but also in Europe and Russia, the US and Canada. We tried to cover the entire scope of Shevchenko’s life.”
