¶ D'iakonova came to fame posthumously, as the author of a diary which was frequently compared to Bashkirtseva's. The diary's success was due to the author's frankness, the timely "woman question' issues that it touched on, and the view of many that she 'typified" young women of her generation. D'iakonova was bom into a merchant family in the village of Nerekhta in 1874. In her diary she describes her mother as despotic and unloving. She completed secondary school in laroslavl' and then wanted to continue her education at the university level, but her mother was strongly opposed to her attending. D'iakonova was forced to wait four years to apply for entrance into the Higher Courses for Women in SPb. when she would no longer need parental approval. Even then her mother was able to block her acceptance for a while. The courses had been her escape, and their reality proved to be a great disappointment. While still a student, she began her literary career with the publication of a translation. Then she published an article, "Women's Education" (Zhenskoe obrazovanie), in the journal Women's Came (ZhenD) and several fictional sketches under the pseudonym E. Nerekhtskaia/D'iakonova graduated from the courses in 1899, She rejected an earlier idea of going to work as a rural schoolteacher. Instead she traveled around Russia. In 1900 she went 10 Paris and started law school at the Sorbonne. She used her life abroad in Paris and London as the basis of several semi-fictional pieces which she published in the journals Kitvite (KievI) and Northern Land (Severnyi krai). While at the Sorbonne, D'takonova developed an obsessive crush on a French doctor and psychologist. She visited him under the pretext of having a psychologically caused illness. These efforts came to nothing. In 1902, at the age of twenty-eight she committed suicide [ DL 3/5 ].
