“RECOLLECTIONS” BY DMYTRO PAVLYCHKO: AUTHOR’S VISION OF UKRAINIAN HISTORY OF THE 20th CENTURY
Olga О. Stadnichenko, Gennady A. Senkevich “RECOLLECTIONS” BY DMYTRO PAVLYCHKO: AUTHOR’S VISION OF UKRAINIAN HISTORY OF THE 20th CENTURY // Modern European Researches. - Salzburg, 2020. - №1. - P. 41-49.
The article explores D.Pavlychko’s “Recollections” (2015) as a hybrid, synthetic generic form featuring the author’s personal memories and experiences as a means to create a holistic, panoramic vision of Ukraine’s tragic history from the 1940-ies to present. Historical figures of the century, be it writers, politicians or civic leaders, as well as numerous references to crucial moments of Ukrainian history shape out a dynamic and eventful landscape of contemporary cultural and political life shaped out with Pavlychko’s well-known creative artistry. Specific attention is paid to the author’s own concept of Ukrainian history as presented through his interpretations of its most controversial, polemical and yet unexplored pages. The narrative structure of “Recollections” is examined within the context of the auhtor’s self-presentation strategy aimed at creating a harmonized, concentrated and integral narrative voice striving to disengage from subjective interpretation in favor of more balanced analytical approach. A sample of modern memoirs, Pavlychko’s “Recollections” arise at the joint of fact and fiction, documentary and artistic vision, opinion-based writing and historical analysis, thus contributing to the modern interest in non-fiction, specifically, in the contradictory history of the XX century as represented through the lives of its most prominent representatives. The seemingly fragmented structure of Pavlychko’s “Recollections” encourage the readers to apply an active reception strategy to reconstruct an integral and detailed panorama of Ukraine’s tragic history throughout the XX century.
