Summary/Abstract: M. Kiyanovska’s literary activity begins in the 1990s. In the artistic life of that time, the domination of masculine literature is traced with the simultaneous recognition of the lack of a „female voice”. So over time, the woman as the author and heroic character of the work of art becomes the cornerstone for Ukrainian feminist critique. In the presented study, the poetry of the feminine „hortus conclusus” M. Kianovska’s „Mythology”, which presents the other femininity in the dimension of femininity, existentialism and mythology, is actualized.
