This chapter provides an analysis on the writing of Russian women before and after the introduction of Romanticism. This analysis is based on recent feminist critiques of 19th-century ideologies, and the chapter further provides a description of how far such apparently neutral categories (‘talent’, ‘commitment’, or ‘serious purpose’) were constructed. Some arguments are highlighted in this chapter, including the argument that women writers had in some senses, more freedom in the late 18th and early 19th centuries in poetry, than they had after 1820.

Keywords:   analysis, writing, Russian women, Romanticism, 19th century ideologies, neutral categories
