 Ukrainian Literature in English, Articles in Journals and Collections, 1840- 1965
Ukrainian Literature in English: Articles in Journals and Collections, 1840-1965 is part of a larger bibliographical project which attempts, for the first time, a comprehensive coverage of translations from, and materials about Ukrainian literature published in the English language from the earliest known publications to the present.
Even though the collective enterprise failed, the chronological divisions remained: the early period (to the end of 1965), done by the original compiler, was the only part of the project that was continuing: the collaborators who were supposed to concentrate on later periods lost heart and gave up before any tangible results were achieved.
With one bibliographer producing this bibliography as a labor of love in her spare time, the project, if it was to continue, had to be divided into segments and extended over a number of years into the future.

This year's Nobel Prize for Literature has, as you all know, been awarded to the Russian writer Mikhail Sholokhov, born in 1905, and now in his sixty-first year.
Sholokhov's childhood was spent in the country of the Don Cossacks; and the strong ties that have always bound him to this district grew out of his sympathy for the highly individual temperament of its people and the wildness of its landscape.
Sir - this distinction is intended as a tribute of justice and gratitude to you for your important contribution to modern Russian literature, a contribution as well-known in this country as it is all over the world.
