Yuriy Tarnawsky

Imagination is so much more fertile than life.More Yuriy Tarnawsky quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I find that biographical material holds me back, hampers my creative process, cramps my imagination.More Yuriy Tarnawsky quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I always lived in a multilingual society (Polish-Ukrainian, German-Ukrainian, English-Ukrainian), and was open to outside linguistic influences. I think it was within three years of coming to the US that I started writing in English, although purely for myself, not trying to get it published. Living in America, I was constantly in touch with English, and Ukrainian was for me a private language.More Yuriy Tarnawsky quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I was always creatively stubborn, adverse to editing by others, and wanted to use the kind of Ukrainian we spoke among ourselves rather than the more artificial prescribed literary Ukrainian. The problem was the greatest in prose, where editors would change my language because "it sounded better this way." My poetry they left alone probably out of deference to that hallowed genre.More Yuriy Tarnawsky quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
It is true that I didn't write any poetry between 1995 and 2011. The reason for this was probably because I had stayed away from fiction for so long and couldn't tear myself away from it.More Yuriy Tarnawsky quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
