Poetry of Voruta


Anyksciai
Anykščiai

       Anykščiai are called sometimes the capital of Lithuanian literature. Here or in the environs such classics of the Lithuanian literature as Antanas Baranauskas (1835–1902), Jonas Biliūnas (1879–1907), Antanas Vienuolis-Žukauskas (1882–1957) were born and working. Near the sources of the Lithuanian writing stands Konstantinas Sirvydas (1579–1631), born also in the environs of Anykščiai. Particularly remarkable trace in the Lithuanian literature was left by the famous poem by Antanas Baranauskas “The forest of Anykščiai”, which was written here in 1858–1859 (it was translated to Polish, Russian, English, Ukrainian, German, Japanese).
       Not accidentally writer Antanas Vienuolis was “involved” into the history of discovery of Voruta, and after the beginning of the archaeological research on the Šeimyniškėliai hillfort poems about this hillfort and the castle of Voruta began here to appear.
       Here are the best examples of the new poetry of Voruta (texts in Lithuanian):

       Rimantas Vanagas. On the Hillfort of Voruta (1993)

       Veronika Dikčiuvienė. On the Hillfort of Šeimyniškėliai (1997)

       Lina Adamonytė. Letter to a Tribesman of King Mindaugas (2001)
