Many an epic poem, short story, and legend evokes the image of the freedom-fighting and authority-defying Cossack standing in defense of the Ukrainian way of life and identity. Ivan Franko’s short story “Khmelnytsky and the Soothsayer” conveys an imagined episode from the life of one of the greatest hetman leaders of the Cossacks, Bohdan Khmelnytsky, and his role in liberating Ukraine from a hostile power—Poland—and establishing a Cossack Hetman state, the Hetmanate. Centuries of unfulfilled Ukrainian yearning for self-determination left their mark on Ukrainian consciousness as much as the Cossack accomplishments.
