Natalka Bilotserkivets

Natalka Bilotserkivets has published five volumes of poetry. Her work, known for lyricism and the quiet power of despair, became a hallmark of Ukraine’s literary life of the 1980s and 1990s. The collections Allergy and Central Hotel were Books of the Year in 2000 and 2004, respectively. Still, the majority of her oeuvre remains unknown in the West. Her poem, “We’ll Not Die in Paris,” became the hymn of the post-Chernobyl generation of young Ukrainians who helped topple the Soviet Union. She lives and works in Kyiv.
