Humorous satire is considered as an important literary technique among Russian women writers. The first female Russian writer who used this technique was Nadezha Buchinskaya, who wrote under the name Nadezha Teffi. This chapter discusses a careful analysis of the different stories and narratives made by Teffi. It is shown that Teffi's use of humour, as well as a variety of other literary devices, was able to give these stories an effortless and rather straightforward quality.

Keywords:   Nadezha Teffi, Nadezha Buchinskaya, humorous satire, Russian women writers, humour, narratives
