Modern Literature Reader's Club Discussed New Novel By Oleksandr Irvanets

January 20, 2011

The Faculty of Romance and Germanic Languages held another literary discussion on 20 January. This time the book lovers discussed a new novel by Oleksandr Irvanets Liebenkraft's Disease. The event gathered a wide audience of readers from the Faculty of Romance and Germanic Languages.

Ostroh Academy has a tradition of readings and literary events. The variety of literary movements and themes facilitates most active deepening of literary knowledge among the philology students. Since the initiation of literary studies, for five years in succession their work has been coordinated by Associate Professor, Candidate of Philology Lidiia Zelinska. Students themselves offer works for discussion. The primary purpose of this project was uniting the lovers of new quality books of contemporary and mostly Ukrainian literature. After reading an interesting book, each student recommends it to their colleagues and friends.  Later they gather together to discuss it, evaluate the author's mastery or discuss and freely exchange ideas, and impressions.

Modern Literature Reader's Club is based on the principles of free communication among students, and thereby they abstract away from academicism. Steady growth of club members indicates that students are real book lovers.

"Typically, there are only a few major works for discussion a year. It depends on whether the books students read are interesting and if they are worth discussing. Sometimes, such a necessity arises. In such case the club members gather together and express their opinions", said Lidiia Zelinska.
