Summary/Abstract: According to the analyzed examples the artistic image of Kostyushko has been widely used as a concept by Belarusian poets and translators since the 19th century. They broke with this tradition in Soviet times. The image of the hero functions as a symbol in the cultural and historic discourse of Belarusian poets. The patriotic feelings are of Lithuanian-Belarusian nature without the division into Lithuanian or Belarusian type. The presence of various historical periods on the territory of modern Belarus has been emphasized.
