506 LEITERS IN CANADA: 1964 Published since the Bibliography appeared is his Ukrainica Canadiana 1963, published as No. 11 in the Bibliography Series of the Ukrainian Free Academy of Sciences. Dr. Yar Slavutych, of the University of Alberta, is the general editor of an anthology-Almanac, Northern Lights, containing an imposing array of Ukrainian poems by D. Struk, M. Veres, O. Chemenko, B. Rubchak, L. Romen, M. Mandryka, B. Mazepa, V. Skorupskyj, D. Mur, D. Mohylyanka and Dr. Slavutych himself. It further contains his elaborate essay on Shevchenko's poetics, which has also been published as a separate, and E. Rajs's "Poetry of an Intellectual Achievement," commemorating Slavutych's twenty-five years as a poet, issuing in eight published volumes. From the University of Manitoba Press's series of volumes, Readings in Slavic Literature, comes a photomechanical reprint of a mediaeval manuscript, Monk Chrahr of Slavic Writings ( 1348), with notes and commentary in Ukrainian by the Metropolitan IIarion (Dr. Ohienko), who had used it as an auxiliary text in his lectures on Slavic philology. Also of academic stature is Dr. K. Kostiw's closely compacted volume on The Constitutional Documents of the Restored Ukrainian State in 1917-1919 and their Political and Sovereign Quality. He distinguishes three epochs: (1) the period of the Ukrainian Central Council, under Michael Hrushevsky as president, from March 17, 1917, to April 29, 1918; (2) the period of the Hetmanate, under General Paul Skoropadsky, April 30, 1918, to December 14, 1918; and (3) the period of the Directory, from December 1918 until the complete occupation of Ukraine by the Bolsheviks in 1920 drove it into exile. The idealistic principles laid down, particularly in the four "Universals" of 1917-18, reveal a high sense of national idealism and a warm regard for human rights, but the Ukrainian nationalists were caught between the upper millstone of Revolutionary Communism, even in their own cities, and the onslaughts of pro-Czarist forces, backed by embargos by the Entente; and a universal sweep of typhus and famine ended their dreams.
