Online Seminar "I Look at the Sky and Think…": Dedicated to the 180th Anniversary of the First Edition of Kharkiv University Graduate Mykhailo Petrenko's Poem


On November 19, 2021, on the initiative of D. I. Bahalii Center for Ukrainian Studies, School of Philosophy, Karazin University held the online seminar "I Look at the Sky and Think…": dedicated to the 180th anniversary of the first edition of Kharkiv University graduate Mykhailo Petrenko's poem.

Maryna Hryhorieva, a specialist of the 1st category of D. I. Bahalii Center for Ukrainian Studies, School of Philosophy, told about his life and creative career.

"Mykhailo Petrenko was born in 1817, probably in the city of Sloviansk, Sloboda-Ukraine province, to the family of the provincial secretary Mykola Petrenko, who came from the nobility. And in 1837, Mykhailo entered Kharkiv University School of Law,” she said.

The participants learned more about the history of the poem "I Look at the Sky and Think...". In particular, Maryna Hryhorieva noted that the poem was first published in 1841 under the title "Misfortune". Later, in 1848, the author changed it a bit and published it under the title "Heaven". And in 1876, the Lviv monthly "Truth. Literary-Political Letter" already contained the poem "I Look at the Sky... ", which is considered the third edition of the poem.

The speaker also told about honoring the memory of the poet: an asteroid was named in his honor and a website was created.

At the end of the event, everyone interested asked questions.
