Born on March 19, 1930 in the town of Rzhschiv Ukraine , Lina Kostenko is a leading representative of Ukrainian Poets of the Sixties known as Shistdesiantnyky. This group started publishing during the 1950s and reached its apex during the early 1960s. It was during the 1950s in which Kostenko published her first poems in major Ukrainian periodicals.

Lina graduated with distinction from the Gorky Institute of Literature in Moscow in 1956. Following her graduation she published 3 collections of poetry in 1957, 1058, and 1961. These book became immensely popular among her Ukrainian readers, however they also forced her into publication silence as she was unwilling to submit to Soviet authorities.

In 1979 she followed with one of her greatest works the historical novel in verse, Marusia Churai, about at 17 th century Ukrainian folksinger .
