Ukrainian Literature: Between Ukraine and Literature. This article is dedicated to the anthology Solomon’s Red Star (2012), which contains 25 essays describing 25 administrah’ve re- gions of contemporary Ukraine. Different rhetorical strategies presented by authors are analyz- ed from a postcolonial perspective. The most important elements of the postcolonial narrative are a notion of a literature as a mirror of reality and understanding of a narrative as a kind of a travelogue, when the author acts as a guide and the reader is supposed to be a tourist. A nar- rative is mostly past-oriented but not future-oriented and the main challenge to the authors is that a history is neither coherent nor complete. /-\ post-soviet stereotype-based narrative is opposed by a mythological poetics as a means of creating a new cultural identity.
