A Concordance to the Poetic Work of Taras Shevcehnko

Published in 2001 by the Canadian Institute of Ukrainian Studies, -- just 14 years prior to the bicentenary of the birth of Ukraine's national bard, Taras Shevechenko, this 4 volume set represents the many years of work by Professors Oleh Ilnyzkyj and George Hawrysch of the University of Alberta. The two academics compiled a thorough alphabetical index of the words found in Shevchenko's poetry in the original Ukrainian. Ilnyzkyj and Hawrysch's concordance shows where each of Shevchenko's words are located in the text of a specific work, as well as its context within that work. 

A Concordance to the Poetic Works of Taras Shevchenko is located in the  Reference section of the Elizabeth Dafoe Library's Slavic Collection at the University of Manitoba.  Call Number Slav PG 3948 S51 A2 2001 t.1-4
