Karolina Pavlova wasn't fully Russian, but that didn't stop her from creating volumes of original Russian poetry (Pavlova grew up trilingual speaking French, German, and Russian). This chapter talks about the different poems written by Pavlova, and how her different background and personality resulted in certain critiques being given of her among the Russians. However, Pavlova was able to evolve her poems into something that could be set apart from feminine poetry, but was still able to grasp femininity as part of its identity.

Keywords:   Karolina Pavlova, poems, feminine poetry, femininity, identity
