This anthology offers an introduction to the first major flowering of Russian women's writing between 1835 and 1860. The work produced during this period, like nearly all writing by Russian women, has been, until very recently, 'hidden from history'. None of the ten stories have beentranslated before and several have not been republished since their original publication in the nineteenth century. These works bear witness to the great contribution made by women to the overall development of Russian fiction in its formative period. The selection shows the diversity of women's writing in the period, as well as the inevitably interconnected nature of theme and treatment among differentauthors. It will demonstrate to the reader, specialist and amateur alike, that women's writing in nineteenth-century Russia is an area that certainly repays further exploration.

Editorial Reviews

`These works represent a modest treasure-trove of hitherto barely known secondary writing of the period and, at the same time, a significant contribution to our awareness of the history of women's writing in Russia.'Neil Cornwell, University of Bristol, Modern Languages Review, vol 94, no 1, 1999
