Ihor Kalynets

Ihor Kalynets
Ihor Kalynets, born in 1939 in Khodoriv, Lviv oblast, graduated from Lviv University in 1961. Inspired by the imagistic verse of B.I. Antonych, Kalynets developed his poetry into the finest exponent of modern Ukrainian 'engage' lyricism. He employs images that are often primeval and a vocabulary that is rich in cultural allusions while using a prosodic cadence that is contemporary. His poetry collections include Vohon' Kupala (The Fire of Kupalo, 1966, 1975), Poezii z Ukrainy (Poems from Ukraine, 1970), Pidsumovuiuchy movchannia (Summing up Silence, 1971), Koronuvannia opudala (The Crowning of a Scarecrow, 1972). Some poems have been translated into German and French as the collections Bilanz des Schweigens (1975) and Les balladins de sel (1980).
