The Babylonian Captivity

The Babylonian Captivity
Product Description
Lesya Ukrainka (a pseudonym) was a Ukrainian activist at a time (late nineteenth century) when she could not print her book in Ukrainian because of the domination of Tsarist Russia over Ukraine at the time. The Babylonian Captivity is an allegory of this political circumstance, but portrayed as the Jewish forced exile. The leading figure, a harpist, is accused of aiding the enemy, but counters the charge of the accusers, who themselves were building for the oppressors. This little book adds historical perspective to today's headline news of the Ukraine -- as not "new" news.
