Editorial Reviews


“[A]n exciting addition to the growing field of anglophone studies of Ukrainian literature. Hundorova masterfully traces the etiologies and manifestations of postmodern literary and cultural structures in Ukraine, placing the explosion of the Chornobyl nuclear power plant as the genesis of the postmodern cultural and literary movement in Ukraine. … Ultimately, Hundorova's The Post-Chornobyl Library is an important contribution not only to the field of Ukrainian literary criticism but also to the expansive library of studies of postmodernism. This work will certainly prove useful to people in either field of study, and its new translation into English allows anglophone critics access to Hundorova's comprehensive, insightful, and theoretically sophisticated arguments on Ukrainian literature, postmodernism, and their interaction.”

―Brett Donohoe, Harvard University, H-Ukraine


"Readers of Tamara Hundorova’s 2005 Postchornobyl’s’ka biblioteka will have to read again: this is no mere translation, but a revisitation, generously fleshed out with more and new interpretive penetration, of a Ukrainian critical classic. The cultural turbulence, the paradoxical overlayering of incompatible worldviews and extravagant literary stances that came after Chornobyl and provided a chorus for the demise (forever, it then optimistically seemed) of Sovietness, cultural as well as political―these find their deservedly intricate, masterfully wrought recreation and interrogation in a collection of indispensable essays by a scholar of the first magnitude." ―Marko Pavlyshyn, Monash University

“Tamara Hundorova presents the Ukrainian carnival as a high manifestation of postmodernism but also a unique example of cultural power. Rich in examples, confident in approach and constructive in expectations, this book is probably the best analysis of Ukrainian literature, grasped in its seminal period between the Maidan rebellion and the Servant of the People movement.” ―Alexander Etkind, Mikhail M. Bakhtin Professor of History of Russia-Europe Relations, European University Institute, Florence

“The Chornobyl nuclear disaster affected much more than human health and the environment. It also challenged the human spirit and gave birth to the rise of new thinking not only about nuclear energy and politics but also about culture, literature, and identity. Nowhere has that transformation become more profound than in Ukraine, where Chornobyl had jump-started the era of mass politics and set the country on the path to political independence. As it is masterfully argued by Tamara Hundorova, Chornobyl also had a lasting impact on Ukrainian literature, helping to end the era of socialist realism and inaugurate a new post-modern literature and worldview. The Post-Chornobyl Library is not only a new and provocative look at Ukrainian literature, but also a highly original contribution to a broader debate on postmodernism and interrelationship between literature and ecology.” ―Serhii Plokhy, author of Chernobyl: The History of a Nuclear Catastrophe
