New York Elegies attempts to demonstrate how descriptions and evocations of New York City are connected to various stylistic
modes and topical questions urgent to Ukrainian poetry throughout its development. The collection thus gives readers the opportunity
to view New York through various poetic and stylistic lenses. Ukrainian poets connected themselves to a powerful myth of New
York, the myth of urban modernity and problematic vitality. The city of exiles and outsiders sees itself reflected in the
mirror that newcomers and exiles created. By adding new voices and layers to this amalgam, it is possible to observe the expanded
picture of this worldly poetic city.
