Olha Yulianivna Kobylianska (1863-1942) was a Ukrainian modernist writer and feminist. Her writings were influenced by George Sand and Friedrich Nietzsche. She was interested in the Ukrainian peasantry, and often wrote about the lives of these people. She depicted the struggle between good and evil and the mystical force of nature, predestination, magic, and the irrational in many of her stories of peasant life. Her works are known for their impressionistic, lyrical descriptions of nature and subtle psychological portrayals.
