The book focuses upon the phenomenon in Russian literature in which a man desires a woman, feels humiliated after having sexual relations with her, and ends up seeking revenge upon his partner. Examined here for the first time, this study on the nature of heterosexual relationships in Russian literature will be of interest to scholars of Russian literature, gender studies, and psychology.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Lapidus admirably assembles a range of a material that works within her paradigm. While she treads familiar ground with her analysis of Anna Karenina, her treatment of Turgenev is more innovative....this volume helps to supplement the growing scholarship on gender and sexuality in Russian literature and will hopefully spur on further research in the field. * Canadian Slavonic Papers, March-June 2010 *
Professor Irina Lapidus offers a provocative study of male/female relationships in Russian literature.... There are some interesting insights provided in the course of her exposition, which will make the study a valuable read particularly for those with an interest in gender studies in Russian literature.... Lapidus sets forth a provocative thesis with interesting and original arguments. * Slavic and East European Journal *
