From the 1920s to the 1940s, literature in Russia can be described as diverse and experimental, and Russian women writers of that time were able to produce some of the most adventurous and artistically successful texts. However, it was also during this period when the institution within the Soviet Union of Socialist Realism was formed. This institution was particularly hostile towards the writing quality of Russian women writers. This chapter discusses the concepts of ‘insider’ and ‘outsider’, which are the two kinds of writers of that period, those who lived inside and those who lived outside the borders of Russia.

Keywords:   1920s, 1940s, literature, Russia, Russian women writers, insider, outsider
