Abstract


This article is a contribution to the issue of possible relation between fiction and society, approached by a study of A.M. Kollontai's story, Vasilisa Maligina. The aim of the study is to examine how far the Kollontai's background, her purpose of writing, and condition of society under which she lived and wrote contribute to her concept on an ideal woman. By analyzing her story, it can be concluded that "Kollontai creates the new woman-her literary work ( Vasilisa Maligina) reflects the creation."
