Subject Highlights



Cvetaeva’s dramatic writings have long been neglected in favor of her poetry and autobiographical and critical/theoretical prose. This article first lists her dramatic writings from the Revolutionary period (intended for the Vachtangov Theater) and from her time in emigration, outlining the plots, since not all the plays are available in translation. Then the generic traits of each play are considered, and critical reactions summarized.
