Disharmony and Other Plays

Volodymyr Vynnychenko (1880-1951) was an extraordinary writer and political figure of the Ukrainian generation that was active in the early twentieth century. In his stories, novels, and plays he broke with populist and literary-realist traditions and rebelled against the social mores and political system of the tsarist empire, often raising provocative questions about morality and authenticity. Vynnychenko wrote most of his 23 plays while he lived as an émigré. A number of his plays were staged in Germany, Italy, Switzerland, Austria, Holland, and other countries. But in the English-speaking world, Vynnychenko is still largely unknown. This volume of six of his best-known plays, translated by George Mihaychuk, corrects this lacuna and introduces readers to a masterful dramatist.

About the Authors

Volodymyr Vynnychenko (1880-1951) was an extraordinary Ukrainian writer, dramatist, and political figure (the first president of the Ukrainian independent state in 1918). Although the radical nature of Vynnychenko's plays often provoked a hostile critical response, he remained extremely popular among readers and audiences, often addressing controversial and taboo topics.
