Yaroslav Polishchuk. Frontier Identity: 20th-Century Odesa

Book on Publisher's
website

Turning over the pages of the twentieth-century cultural history of Odesa, the author analyzes the frontier identity that developed in this peculiar city. The first part analyzes the general processes that defined the cultural face of Odessa, while the second one presents the portraits of prominent artists, Vladimir Zhabotinsky, Pyotr Leshchenko, Mykhailo Zhuk, Borys Necherda, and Borys Khersonsky. Each of them originally embodied the image of the seaside city in its different identity and invariable charm. And if these figures are forgotten today, then we have a good opportunity to know and evaluate them more deeply, at the same time rethinking the phenomenon of twentieth-century Odesa.
