  • Alphabetical List -- sorted by family name

      Note: This section is under development. Not all of the authors listed have pages developed for them.


  • Chronological List -- Authors are listed by literary periods with essays summarizing each period.

      Note: This section is still early in its development. The essays are not yet available, but the basic chronology is.


  • Dz'micier Zinowjew's Belarusian Poetry Web page

      Note: This section is a resurrection of Mr. Zinowjew's Belarusian Poetry Web site, last on the Web in 1999, I think.


  • Also refer to the Belarusian Writers Abroad section of the Belarusian Culture Abroad Web site. Downloadable copies of novels are also available there (in MS Word format, Cyrillic, Belarusian; fonts are also available).

      Note: If you go to the link, above, use your Web browser's "back" to return to this page.


  • On a separate Web site, refer to Belarusian Literature in English translation. Many of the translations as well as the introductory essay are written by Vera Rich.



Notes:

  • The people listed here have some sort of strong connection to Belarus, its culture, and its historical geographical area. Many of them can be clearly identified with Belarusian culture and history, and they often expressed a strong sense of their identity as Belarusians during their lifetimes.   (Note: I use the term "Belarusian Culture" in its most inclusive possible meaning.)

    But for some of the following people, the "connection" is only through the accident of the location of their birth--the same as can be said for many of the famous people claimed by other countries. (One should ask, why were these famous "Poles", "Russians", etc., born in Belarus? The answer is not flattering to these other nations. . . .)

  • Exclusion of some individuals may simply be due to this being a very early beginning of a work in progress. . . .

  • Please contact me for corrections, additions, etc.
