Description : The present volume has as its primary aim readings, from a feminist perspective, of a number of works from Russian literature published over the period in which the 'woman question' rose to the fore and reached its peak. All the works considered here were produced in, or hark back to, a fairly narrowly defined period of not quite 20 years (1846-1864) in which issues of gender, of male and female roles were discussed much more keenly than in perhaps any other period in Russian literature.The overall project is summed up by the three key words of this book's title, narrative, space and gender, and, especially, the interconnections between them. That is, what do the way these stories were told tell us about gender identities in mid-nineteenth-century Russia? Which spaces were central to these fictional worlds? Which spaces suggested which gender identities? The discussions therefore focus on issues of narrative and space, and how they acted as 'technologies of gender'. This volume will be of interest to all interested in nineteenth-century Russian literature, as well as students of gender, and of the semiotics of narrative space.

Description : The Russian literary world was shaken by the wide-reaching reforms of the late Soviet period (1985-91) and the Soviet Union's subsequent collapse. During this period of transition there emerged a body of writing known as 'alternative literature, characterized by thematic, structural, and linguistic transgression of both Soviet-era values and the enduring Russian tradition of civic engagement and moral edification through literature. The extraordinary and sometimes bizarre work of the most significant women writers of the period, particularly Valeriia Narbikova, Liudmila Petrushevskaia and Nina Sadur, raises issues of gender and creative authority. But Adlam questions the extent to which labels like 'alternative' can be applied to such individual writers.

Description : Gender-oriented studies of 19th-century Russian literature have struggled with how to determine the feminism or misogyny of particular authors. By focusing on the character type of the ward, or young female dependent, this book examines the narrative strategies used by such writers as Pushkin, Zhukova, Tolstoy, Herzen, and Dostoevsky to represent socially marginal women in their works. Drawing on Bakhtin's concepts of dialogue and polyphony, this volume examines the following question: does he present them dialogically, i.e., as subjects in their own right, with their own point of view. By proposing this new way of approaching the texts, the book corrects the charges of misogyny leveled at classical Russian literature.

Description : "The Russian literary world was shaken by the wide-reaching reforms of the late Soviet period (1985-91) and the Soviet Union's subsequent collapse. During this time the phenomenon of 'alternative' literature emerged, characterized by an emphasis on thematic, structural, and linguistic transgression of both Soviet-era values and the enduring Russian tradition of civic engagement and moral edification through literature. Through close textual analysis, Adlam examines the relationship of this literary phenomenon to issues of gender and creative authority, providing detailed discussion of several of the most significant women writers of the period, among them Valeriia Narbikova, Liudmila Petrushevskaia and Nina Sadur."
