Overview

The first reference work in any language devoted to Russian women writers, this dictionary systematically covers, in detail, the lives of 448 women who wrote from the period of Catherine the Great to the present. Despite their significant achievements, women writers are generally missing from the canons of Russian literature. The present editorial team individually began the process of uncovering this lost literary heritage over ten years ago. More recently, they joined forces with and enlisted contributions from scholars in North America, Europe, and Russia. Each entry comprises a bio-critical sketch followed by lists of important writings in the original and in translation, archival sources, and major secondary references. Data has been researched worldwide, with biographical information culled from diaries, memoirs, and other primary sources as well as literary histories and reference works. A general bibliography supplements the secondary sources provided with each entry.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A dictionary that assembles scattered and neglected materials to cover the lives and works of 448 Russian women writers who, despite their significant historical and cultural contributions, are by and large missing from the canon of Russian literature. The overall criterion for inclusion was that a woman writer had to have contributed substantially to, or have been seen as part of, the community of authors, critics, and historians of the "artistic" forms of prose, poetry, and drama. In the interest of historical overview, pioneers are sometimes privileged over more productive later writers. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
