Description
In 1839's Princess Zizi—the first of these two novelettes by Vladimir Odoevsky (1803–69)—passionate Zinaida devotes her youth to serving her mother, but when her chance at love comes, the suitor marries her sister instead. Again sacrificing her own hopes through devotion to her sister's baby, Zinaida is confronted with an attempt to defraud her family, and she will have to assert herself to prevail. Princess Mimi (1834) is the tale of a bitter spinster who uses gossip and intrigue to exact revenge against younger, more eligible ladies. Bridget Kendall's insightful foreword serves as an introduction to this neglected Russian realist and the aristocracy whose foibles he so capably chronicled.
