Мемуарные стратегии в еврейских и русских автобиографиях конца XIX – начала XX вв.: детство в воспоминаниях П. Венгеровой и Е. Водовозовой.

С. 71-100.

The memoirs of Jewish amateur writer P. Vengerova and Russian writer/educator E. Vodovozova have many commonalities in their plot lines. Yet the approaches of the memoirists towards the description of their childhood were different. While Vengerova builds her memoirs on the myth of the Golden Age of Jewish authenticity lost in the course of assimilation, Vodovozova perceived her childhood against the foil of Russian serf-ownership. The strategies and methods of the writers derived from their approaches.
