Mykhailo Kotsiubynsky, (1864 – 1913) is a Ukrainian author whose writings described typical Ukrainian life at the start of the 20th century. The popularity of his novels later led to some of them being made into Soviet movies.

Kotsiubynsky’s early stories were described as examples of ethnographic realism; in the years to come, with his style of writing becoming more and more sophisticated, he evolved into one of the most talented Ukrainian impressionist and modernist writers.
