"Engendering Slavic Literatures" breaks new ground in its investigation of gender and feminist issues in Croatian, Polish, Russian, Serbian, and Ukrainian literary texts by both female and male writers. These eleven essays apply Western literary and feminist theory to 19th- and 20th-century Slavic literary works. Motherhood and the relationships of mothers and daughters; the myths of selfhood that shape the autobiographies of Nadezhda Mandelstam, Marina Tsvetaeva, Lidiia Ginzburg, and Lev Tolstoy; Polish Catholicism and sexuality; portrayals of landscape in verbal and visual art; and women writers' transgressive ventures into male bastions such as the love lyric and prose fiction are among the themes of this important and innovative volume. The contributors are Diana Burgin, Pamela Chester, Jane Costlow, Halina Filipowicz, Sibelan Forrester, Natasha Kolchevska, Jasmina Lukic, Solomea Pavlychko, Sarah Pratt, Stephanie Sandler, and Magdalena Zaborowska.
