Uladzimir Karatkievich

Uladzimir Karatkievich (1930 –1984) was a Belarusian romantic writer.

Vladimir learned to read at the age of 3 1/2. As a child, he not only liked to listen to fairy tales and stories that were read to him by his elders, but tried to think of plot development. From the earliest childhood he was interested in history, especially the history of Belarus. The diversity of his talents was manifested in a penchant for drawing, which lasted a lifetime. Also, he had perfect pitch, while engaged in a music school.

His first published poem was in 1951, which was followed by three collections of verses. Later, he turned to prose and subsequently published many short stories in collections entitled Chazenia, The Eye of the Typhoon, From Past Ages, and others. He also wrote the novels Unforgettable and The Dark Castle Olshansky. The novel King Stakh's Wild Hunt (1964) is probably his most popular work.
