Abstract

This research is devoted to a comparison of the prose work of two prominent women writers in the context of the post-Soviet Caucasus: Alisa Ganieva and Ana Kordzaia-Samadashvili. Through their use of myths from various cultures of the world, Ganieva and Kordzaia-Samadashvili succeed in creating original stories of women that lay the basis of what is becoming the new Canon in Russian and Georgian literature. Tapping into the suggestive, arcane power of myths, the oldest relics of the past, they operate a regrouping of values, further problematizing the role of women in times of radical change. Therefore, these two case studies appear to be particularly relevant to describe the paradigmatic cultural shift that occurred in a specific region – that of the Caucasus, – once entirely part of the Soviet Union.
