Olga Meerson. "Gogol’s Vij and Dostoevsky’s Krotkaia: Dead Souls vs. Poor (Women)Folk. More on the Theory of Parody.." International Dostoevsky Society 2008, Budapest, Hungary. Ed. Kroo Katalin, IDS Board, et al.. Budapest, Hungary: IDS, 2010.

The article addresses Feminism as a form of Polyphony in Dostoevsky's polemics with Gogol, as regards a witch, zombie-like female character in Gogol, whom Dostoevsky proceeds to re-write as his own Meek Woman, best known in previous English translations as... the proverbial "Gentle Creature"!
