Summary/Abstract: The phenomenon of the natural right of the personality in the works of Ukrainian Late Baroque writers-enlighteners is a little studied in the history of Ukrainian literature. However, its investigation discovers new ways for national writers’ integration into European context. National Enlightenment represents not only important artistic and literature aspects, but also social and political ones – the author’s interpretation of the idea of natural right in times of Ukrainian serfdom. It was very important and unique phenomenon when the idea of natural right of the person was developed at the artistic space. It is represented in the works of enlighteners, in particular Semen Klymovskyj, Myhajlo Kozachynskyj, Yakiv Kozelskyj. Their opinions are formed in accordance to the conceptual space of European Enlightenment. Their artistic conceptions are the important investment in the conservation and the development of Ukrainian traditions and literature in the difficult historical and political situations as well as in grounding of Ukrainian person’s right in Ukraine.
