The very first woman writer in Russia who was able to produce an impressive number of literary works in the Russian language was Mariya Zhukova. This chapter gives a brief and general survey of the different provincial tales written by Zhukova before moving on to a more detailed discussion of ‘Baron Reichman’, which was one of her society tales. The chapter ends by outlining Evenings by the Karpovka, a collection of Zhukova's stories.

Keywords:   women writers, Russia, Mariya Zhukova, provincial tales, Baron Reichman, society tales, Evenings by the Karpovka
