The female characters in Sonochka, Meidiya and Her Children, the early masterpieces of Ulitskaya, a well-known contemporary Russian woman writer, have always been scrutinized from the male perspective. This unique way of evaluating women from the perspective of the opposite sex is reflected in the depiction of the characters’ appearance, the shaping of their characters and the arrangement of their destinies in these novels, which reflects the writer’s recognition of the traditional moral integrity of women. The involvement of the male perspective shows the spiritual distress and helplessness of women in the post-Soviet period. At the same time, it is also a typical binary oppositional writing model, which runs through Ulitskaya’s writing career and has some connection with her dramatic creation. The use of the male perspective proves that Ulitskaya was not a pure feminist writer in the early stages of her literary creation.
