SLA 429S offers a detailed examination of Taras Shevchenko as a poet, as a painter, as a person, and as a prophet of the Ukrainian nation. The course covers all of Shevchenko's written works: his poetry, prose, letters, diary, and drama. It also examines some of his artwork. The significance of Shevchenko in Ukrainian literature and history is shown by examining critical works about him. The primary goal of the course, however, is to read and enjoy and then to read again Shevchenko's wonderful poetry.
