Eccentric Days of Hope and Sorrow (Paperback)
Eccentric Days of Hope and Sorrow brings together a selection of Natalka Bilotserkivets's poetry from the last four decades. Having established an English-language following largely on the merits of a single poem, Bilotserkivets's larger body of work continues to be relatively unknown. She was an active participant in "Ukraine's Renaissance" of the late-Soviet and early-independence period. Now, nearly thirty years on, much has changed in her birth land, but the lyricism and urgency in Bilotserkivets's poetry remain; her voice still speaks about movement and restricted movement, even symbolic movement. Eccentric Days of Hope and Sorrow endeavors to return to shed light on the missing history.
