Dissidents: An Anthology of Texts

The anthology makes the first attempt to represent the Ukrainian dissident movement of the 1960–80s in all its polyphony, less on the sociopolitical level and more through the prism of human destinies. The stories of ideas and personal undertakings are unfolding before the readers in the vivid pulsation of texts that testify for themselves.

The anthology consists of texts written in different genres: from poetry, public speeches, and samvydav (self-published uncensored) texts, to court speeches, texts on being held in jails, special psychiatric hospitals, and prison camps, and finally, to self-reflection on personal experiences of opposing the totalitarian system. Such a variety creates a multidimensional and meaningful picture of the Ukrainian dissident movement. These texts were born in a time when being free was associated with prison camps more often than with living at large.
