O. M. Slipushko, A. O. Katyuzhynska
The article represents the study of the peculiarities of the integration of PanEuropean theatrical traditions of the Baroque epoch into the historical drama by Ukrainian coryphees. Particular attention is paid to the study of the specifics of the creation of baroque drama of the XVIII century and its influence on the formation of the dramatic tradition of the Coryphées. The main European tendencies represented in historical baroque dramas are singled out. It is proved, that succession is manifested primarily at the level of national identity. The historical dramas of F. Prokopovych “Volodymyr”, the anonymous author “God’s Grace” and M. Starytsky “Bogdan Khmelnytsky”, I. Karpenko-Kary “Sava Chaly” in the comparative aspect are analyzed. Common and different features in the interpretive models of the central images of statesmen are clarified. Actually, F. Prokopovich has developed his own theory of drama with a division into five acts. It was found out, that such a structure is also characteristic of the works of I. Karpenko-Kary “Sava Chaly” and M. Starytsky “Bogdan Khmelnytsky”, which testifies to the preservation of the baroque dramatic tradition. At the same time, the Coryphées have significantly deepened the compositional structure of the drama, adding new elements. The works of the anonymous author “God’s Grace” and M. Starytsky “Bogdan Khmelnytsky” have the genre of historical drama, the central image of hetman B. Khmelnytsky. However, in the historical drama of M. Starytsky “Bohdan Khmelnytsky” the interpretative model of the image of the statesman is significantly expanded, in particular, the psychological aspect of the figure of the hetman is deepened. At the same time, the idea of messianism, especially the interpretation of the National Liberation War as the highest level of self-sacrifice, is common in the interpretation of the image of B. Khmelnytsky by the anonymous author and M. Starytsky. Pan-European traditions of Ukrainian baroque drama of the XVIII century has become one of the sources for the formation of the original professional Theater of luminaries, in particular historical dramas.
Keywords: historical drama, Baroque epoch, F. Prokopovych, “Volodymyr”, “God’s Grace”, Theater of Coryphées.
