A Plot of Her Own presents compelling new readings of major texts in the Russian literary canon, all of which are readily available in translation. The female protagonists in the works examined are inextricably linked with the fundamental issues raised by the novels they inform; the interpretations offered strive not to be reductive or doctrinaire, not to be imposed from the outside but to arise from the texts themselves and the historical circumstances in which they were written. Authors discussed include Pushkin, Dostoevsky, Tolstoy, and Bulgakov, and the novels considered range from Fathers and Children to Zamyatin's anti-Utopian We. Throughout, the contributors new visions expand our understanding of the words and reveal new significance in them.

Neither a discussion of literary works written by women nor a survey of female images in male-authored texts, this work can be said to be revisionist in several senses. It takes issue with the old, unconscious assumption of critics, male and female alike, that women characters in fiction - even if idealized - are marginal, mere appendages to male protagonists, not worthy of investigation in their own right. This collection demonstrates that when we transform these old habits of thought and old ways of seeing and enter texts from a new and fresh perspective, which foregrounds women and the female protagonist in particular, the results are fruitful. Authors discussed include Chekov, Dostoevsky, Pushkin and Tolstoy, and the novels considered range from Fathers and Children to Zamyatin s anti-Utopian We . Throughout, the contributors revisions expand our understanding of the major works they address and reveal new significance in them. Bookseller Inventory # BTE9780810112247
