This unique humanities course will introduce you to the masterpieces of the “Golden Age” of Russian literature (1820s-1890s), with a focus on the works of the canonical Russian writers - Pushkin, Gogol, Dostoevsky, Tolstoy and Chekhov - from the insights into their exceptional lives and concurrent historical events towards a gradual understanding of their intriguing characters and plots through an in-depth analysis and appreciation of their poetics.
What gives a classical Russian novel its power over the imagination, and how can we define its distinguishing features? What are the aesthetic, philosophical, psychological and ethical dimensions of Russian prose, poetry and drama? What can we learn about ourselves and the world by reading Anna Karenina in translation, or watching Russian, American, and British film adaptations of Russian classics? What are the great lessons of Russian literature, what does it have to offer both us and our times?
