The contributions gathered in this volume take a fresh look at the medieval history of women. From powerful nobility as a cultural actor, to prominent and lesser-known female writers, including female protagonists of lyric poetry and narrative literature, the book offers interdisciplinary perspectives on historical, authorial, and textual femininity.

Abstract

The study provides a close analysis of literary works by women in late-18th- and early-19th-century Russia, with a focus on Anna Naumova, Mariia Pospelova, and Mariia Bolotnikova. Political, social and feminist theories are applied to examine restrictions imposed on women. Women authors in particular were fettered by a culture of feminisation strongly influenced by the French philosopher Jean-Jacques Rousseau. As Sentimentalism and its aesthetics began to give way to Romantic ideals, some provincial Russian women writers saw an opportunity to claim social equality, and to challenge traditional concepts of authorship and a view of women as mute and passive.
