The Choir of Bell-Flowers by Pavlo Tychyna in The Complete Early Poetry Collection has the subtitle "A fragment of a long poem". What does this mean? Was that added by the translator or by the author? Is this the complete poem?

1 Answer 1


The subtitle is present in the Ukrainian original: "Хор лісових дзвіночків (уривок із поеми)" ["Chorus of forest bells (excerpt from a poem)"]. So it definitely was not added by the translator, and seems indeed to be the original title of the work.
