📒Voices From Chernobyl ✍ Ingrid Storholmen
📝Voices From Chernobyl SYNOPSIS : Winner of the Sult Prize 2010 Nominated for the 2009 Critics' Prize Nominated for the 2009 Brage Award Nominated for the 2009 Youth Critics' Prize Chernobyl, 26 April 1986. Things were ruined overnight in that quiet town of Ukraine. An experiment to produce electricity from the residual energy in the steam generator of Reactor Four at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Station went horribly wrong, bringing on an explosion that blew away the reactor's roof and set afire the graphite in its core. The blaze lasted several days, casting huge quantities of radioactivity a thousand metres up into the atmosphere. And it was a long time before the local people were evacuated. This is the story of what came after. What happened to the people of Chernobyl? How did innocuous atoms -which make all things, even us - connive to unleash a destruction so vicious that there was little left to be salvaged? Did the world learn any lessons from the tragedy? Told in the voices of many victims, this elegiac novel recounts how their bodies, lives and loves, realities and memories were distorted forever, and how the very air around them was irrevocably changed.
📝Svetlana Aleksievich s Voices from Chernobyl Between an Oral History and a Death Lament SYNOPSIS : ABSTRACT: As in the rest of her Nobel Prize-winning prose, in Voices from Chernobyl, Svetlana Aleksievich uses oral history to create polyphonic reflections on an unprecedented event in Soviet history. The nature and structure of this narrative, however, stand out among Aleksievich's other works, and resemble a continuous, collective mourning, which renders the book comparable in genre to the Slavic death lament. The analysis of Aleksievich's Chornobyl' narrative through the lens of the Slavic death lament helps determine the text's compositional structure, performative effects, and central imagery, demonstrating the book's reliance on literary devices.

📒Chernobyl Explosion ✍ Michael Burgan
📝Chernobyl Explosion SYNOPSIS : The long-term damage from an accident at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant more than 30 years ago is still unknown. When explosions ripped through the reactor in rural Ukraine, then part of the Soviet Union, they spewed huge amounts of radioactive material into the atmosphere and caused the worst nuclear disaster in history. About 10,000 people have died or will die because of their exposure to radiation, and experts worry about the children born to parents who were living near the disaster area. With international help, Ukraine has enclosed the damaged reactor, giving scientists time to figure out what the future holds.
