Beyond Pain is an autobiographical novel by Osyp Turianskyi, in which he depicted the terrible experience of captivity during the First World War. Sixty thousand Austrian prisoners ended up in the hands of the Serbs, and they, retreating to the west, chased them by stages through the mountains into Albania. In the end, forty-five thousand prisoners died from cold and disease.

In the center of the plot are seven soldiers who manage to escape from the escorts. All around is an icy wasteland, suffering, awareness of doom, and the struggle for life.

This book is a shock, a trauma book - a terrible testimony of a soldier who survived when all his friends died.

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.
