Oh bury me, then rise ye up
And break your heavy chains
And water with the tyrants’ blood
The freedom you have gained.
And in the great new family,
The family of the free,
With softly spoken, kindly word
Remember also me.

Testament (Zapovit), Taras Shevchenko

ABOUT

Taras Shevchenko

Considered to be the father of modern Ukrainian literature, Taras Shevchenko (1814 to 1861) was a poet, writer, public and political figure, and artist. His life and work have been celebrated for more than a century, and he is especially revered in Ukraine. Shevchenko is often referred to as Kobzar Taras, or Kobzar. A kobzar is a bard in Ukrainian culture.

Shevchenko was born into serfdom, and was orphaned early in life. He grew up in extreme poverty. His freedom was purchased while he was studying at the Imperial Academy of Arts in Saint Petersburg. Upon the completion of his studies, he returned to Ukraine and was appalled anew at the conditions under which his country folk were forced to live.
