On Motifs of Lesya Ukrainka song “Song of the Forest"

The commemorative coin is dedicated to the 140th anniversary of birth of Lesya Ukrainka, a Ukrainian poetess, playwright and public figure, as well as to the centenary of writing her drama “The Forest Song”. Lesya Ukrainka’s multifaceted talent has revealed itself in the most diverse spheres of the literary work – she has been a lyric poet, playwright, prose writer, literary critic and publicist, translator and specialist in folklore.   One of the most remarkable dramatical pieces of Lesya Ukrainka is “The Forest Song”, an extravaganza drama, based on the rich Volhynian folklore and written in rhythmically beautiful verses; it asserts the human dream, winged sentiments, triumph of amenities of the life over the spiritual impoverishment.
