Who are we — Ukraine or Little Russia? Europe or Russia? Is Ukrainian religiosity the same as Byzantine Orthodoxy? Are Ukrainians really a "peasant nation"?
What secret did the "secret societies" of the Little Russian nobles of the 19th-century guard? Where did the legend of the Grail come from in "The Song of the Forest"? What is democracy, and what is hamocracy? What was the modern "Ukrainian project," and did we manage to implement it?

One of Oksana Zabuzhko's most famous books, first published in 2007 and awarded with many prestigious awards, offers the reader an impressive intellectual journey through ages, cultures, and denominations in search of the "Ukraine we lost". The key to it is the myth of Lesya Ukrainka - the worst read and most dramatically underestimated writer from the pantheon of our national classics.

This is a fundamental historical and cultural work and an exquisite philological exegesis. It is also a warning book about our present - how cruelly we pay for the loss and oblivion of centuries-old knightly culture.
