The Golden Age of Russian Literature

RUSS 322/522, C LIT 320 B

MTWTh 2:30-3:20     

No time to read a 700 page Russian novel? You're in luck: Russian short stories, novellas, and plays offer a shortcut to the same greatness. Slouch around the sleazy corners of St Petersburg with Dostoevsky's desperate creeps, travel the sunlit countryside with Turgenev's love-lorn college students, join the army with Lermontov and Tolstoy, fight for your sanity with Garshin. Short works of Russian literature move, entertain, provoke, infuriate, and ask the great questions just like the big books. 

Evaluation: 5 one-page papers and a final paper of 3-5 pages.

Catalog Description: 
Examination of the development of European literature in a variety of genres and periods. Possible areas of study include literature from romantic fiction of early nineteenth century through great realist classics of second half of the century or from symbolism to expressionism and existentialism.
