An Anthology of Russian women's writing, 1777-1992
Oxford University Press, 1994 - Fiction - 535 pages
This is the first systematic historical anthology of Russian women's writing to appear in any language. It provides a radically new sense of the development of Russian women's writing over the last 200 years, including important texts by well-known writers such as Anna Akhmatova, Marina Tsvetaeva, Elena Shvarts, and Olga Sedakova, as well as introducing outstanding works by lesser-known authors such as Sofya Soboleva, Olga Shapir, Mariya Shkapskaya, Anna Barkova, and Vera Merkureva.
This rich collection of poems, drama, plays, and stories includes works that have never before been translated into English. All of the selections are freshly translated and the poetry appears in the original Russian along with English translations.
