She also acknowledges useful comments on earlier versions of this article from Judith Vowles, Barbara Heldt, Gerry Smith, Jehanne Gheith, and Adele Barker.

On pre-Petrine letters see, e.g., A. A. Zalizniak, “Uchastie zhenshchin v drevnerusskoi perepiske na bereste, ” in Luigi Magarotto and Daniela Rizzi (eds.), La cultura spirituale russa (Trento, 1992), 127–46; A. A. Medyntseva, “Gramotnost' zhenshchin na Rusi XI–XIII, po dannym epigrafiki, ” in Slovo o polku Igoreve i ego vremia (Moscow, 1985), 218–40. For an example of eighteenth-century workaday correspondence, see the letter by A. I. Kurakina (1711–1786) in Arkhiv dekabrista S. G. Volkonskogo, ed. S. M. Volkonskii and B. L. Modzalevskii, vol. I (Petrograd, 1918), 1. M. Protasova-Moier's letters are available in Utkinskii sbornik: Pis'ma V. A. Zhukovskogo, M. A. Moier i E. A. Protasovoi, ed. A. E. Gruzinskii (Moscow, 1904), 135–286.

Kelly Anthology, 1–2, 397–8. V кратчайxi времеna Pocciя пpoцвeлa, / Pacinов, Pinдapoв, оnа пpoiзвeла, / EKATEPIHIH век те nyne вocпeвают . . . / I чтобy oкрyaть свящеnnyh Myз пpестол, / Tо nачал вocпевать y nас i enskiй пол; . . . / B Poccii вiдiмy Caпfоny, де ла Cюзy.

I Ty, coтрyдniца пicaтeлeй пoчтennyх, / Qecть пола Tвoего, свеpшай толь cлaвnyй пyть; / Lюбiтельniца Myз, Tебе препорyчеnnyh, / Uчаствyй в лiке iх, iiм красою бyдь; / Qyдесnое в сей век inовое явлеnье, / B Tебе, о Dашкова, yчеnyй вiдiт свет, / Minерва nашiх дnей, гоnя предрассyдеnье, / Dостоinствам твоiм nаградy подает. Sobesednik liubitelei russkogo slova 9 (1783), 18–22.

On masquerades, see, e.g., Catherine II, Zapiski (London, 1859), 107, 112.

K мiлой подойтi захочет / Kоль красавец молодой: / To с тобою похолочет, / B мiлость чтоб прiйтi y той. / Pовертiтся, посмеется / I пошаркает nогой, / Бyдто к мiлой оберnется — / V речь взойдет тотчас с тобой. Aoniia, ili sobranie stikhotvorenii: sochinenie Gzh. ***[Moskvinykh], Book 1 (all published, Moscow, 1802), 156.

On eighteenth-century education, including Catherine's flagship Smol'nyi Institute, the best source is still E. Likhacheva, Materialy dlia istorii zhenskogo obrazovaniia v Rossii, 1086–1796 (St. Petersburg, 1890). A good English-language study is J. Black, “Educating Women, ” in his Citizens for the Fatherland: Education, Educators and Pedagogical Ideals in Eighteenth-Century Russia (New York, 1979), 152–72. On advice books, see Catriona Kelly, “Educating Tatiana: Manners, Motherhood and Moral Education (Vospitanie), 1760–1840, ” in Linda Edmondson (ed.), Gender in Russian History and Culture, 1800–1990 (Basingstoke, 2001).

See, for example, S. Vengerov's Russkaia poeziia: sobranie proizvedenii russkikh poetov (Russian Poetry: A Collection of the Works of Russian Poets [St. Petersburg, 1897–1903]).

8. On salon culture and the précieuses in France, see Joan DeJean, Tender Geographies: Women and the Origins of the Novel in France (Columbia, 1991). The part of salons in Russian literary history awaits detailed study: M. Aronson and S. Reiser, Literaturnye kruzhki i salony (Leningrad, 1929), is valuable as a selection of primary materials, but
