Yuriy Stupak’s Works on T. Shevchenko



The article examines the scientific work of a Sumy scholar Yuriy Stupak, in which a particular place is occupied by his studies of the creative heritage of Taras Shevchenko in a wide historical and literary context. A separate attention is paid to the scholar’s works, in which he analyses the pictorial heritage of T. Shevchenko, the educational orientation of Shevchenko’s ABC Book and the poet’s relations with Sumshchyna.

Yurij Stupak has left behind over three hundred scientific papers on diverse topics. Among his interests were Shevchenko’s studies, folklore studies, literature for children, relationships between literatures, and fine arts. The entries The ABC Book of South Russia, Kramskoy, Krayniukov, Krasnozhon, and Krolevets, written by the scholar for the Shevchenko’s Lexicon (К.,1976) stand for the summing up of Stupak’s Shevchenko studies and generalize his original findings and auctorial discoveries.

Along with the Shevchenko studies, Yu. Stupak elaborated his scientific interest in folkloristics. The value of the scholar’s published facts and auctorial reflections hitherto keeps its topicality.
