…For all readers interested in the fabric of women’s literature and women in a literary society, this book represents the highest achievement to date in Russian studies. Choice

Women Writers in Russian Literature presents a critical overview of Russian women writers from earliest times to the present, including emigre authors. Each of the 14 essays is by a scholar in a particular field; together, they cover all of Russian literature–from old Russia through the 18th and 19th centuries and up to the present–and include all genres: prose, poetry, drama, and autobiography. This collection examines images of women, and reintroduces Russian women writers whose recognition is long overdue. It also focuses on issues of reception and canon formation, and the relationship between gender and genre.
