Dmytro Stus. Vasyl Stus: A Life as Art

Nobody knows how to explain the mystery of fame. Oft en a person who has spent all his life at the very
core of events falls into oblivion right aft er his death. Vasyl Stus became renowned only aft er his reburial
in 1989. What was the reason? His poetry? His heroic life? His irreconcilable position? Or his ability to
be compassionate? In his attempt to answer these and other questions, the poet’s son Dmytro masterfully
combines the objective data of Vasyl Stus’s biography with his own private recollections and observations
about his father. His book off ers a paradoxical interrelation of contexts combining the highbrow scientifi c with fi ction-like styles. Th is book shows Vasyl Stus through the eyes of his son and researcher against a background of «belated nation-making».
For a wide circle of readers: from students to academics.
