Marko Vovchok is a writer, and emancipator, considered one of the first authors in the genre of psychological realism. Her work is a manifesto of freedom in the midst of complete slavery. In her stories and one of the central stories, "Instytutka", the author depicts vivid images of heroines who do not want to put up with a life of slavery. On the one hand, we see a depraved, cruel, disgusting young lady. The drill of good manners in the boarding house did not affect her in any way, so she turns the lives of those around her into hell: psychological pressure, whims, beatings, bullying. And on the other hand, the peasant Ustyna, under any circumstances is ready to defend her own dignity and sacrifice everything for the right to manage her own life.

About the series "Non-canon canon"

Thinking about the canon of Ukrainian literature, only a few names from the school curriculum come to mind: Shevchenko, Franko, and Nechuy-Levytskyi. Although in reality, this list is much more extensive and more diverse.

Before you are the series "Non-canon canon", with the help of which we want to talk about all those we did not know, whose texts we read without understanding the context of the reality of the time. Before you are a series designed to rediscover familiar strangers. You will find a range of Ukrainian authors and their works - from Pidmohylnyi and Barhianyi to Khvylovyi and Johansen, from an elegant intellectual novel to a dynamic adventure, from innovative urban prose to psychological texts.

Keys accompany each text for reading from Ukrainian literary experts. They will tell you what to pay attention to and help you look at the texts of Ukrainian classics in a new way.
