    About the Authors
    • This collection of original essays by leading Western and Russian specialists gives an overview of key issues in Russian women's writing and of important representations of women by men, between 1600 and the present, exploring the differences between the writing of women and men in Russia. It combines a study of the history and biography of previously neglected women writers with close readings of literary texts, demonstrating that although many Russian women writers have been unjustly disadvantaged and marginalized, their work contains much of interest for contemporary women readers.

      • Combines research on Russian women's literature with the study of the image of women in Russian literature
      • Applies contemporary feminist concepts to the study of Russian writers
      • Combines an overview of women writers from the seventeenth century onwards with detailed studies of individual writers

      Reviews & endorsements

      "...rich material concerning the lives of Russian women writers.... The volume makes a contribution to studies of Russian women writers both by the wealth of information it provides and by the questions it raises about the current state of such studies." Patricia Carden, Slavic Review

      "...the collection is a rich resource, well indexed, covering a wide range of generic and temporal territory, and a fine choice both for scholars of Russian literature and for nonspecialists who would like to compare their own areas of expertise with analogous periods or authors in Russia." Signs
