Abstracts

EN
The author embarks on a post-colonial analysis of short stories by two 'fin-de-siecle' Ukrainian writers Mykhailo Kotsiubynsky and Mykhailo Hrushevskyi. He scrutinizes the content of utterances by the characters of 'For the Benefit of All' by Kotsiubynsky, and 'Bekh-al'-Dzhuhur' by Hrushevskyi. These utterances are compared to a speech delivered by the former British Prime Minister James Balfour, who openly supported the colonial policy. In the above mentioned short stories the so-called 'Balfourian speech' stands in a stark contrast to the narrated world, which makes them thoroughly anti-colonial.
