LTRS 210 19th Century Russian Literature

Prof. Erman, TR 1:40pm-2:55pm

This class offers a survey of key 19th Century Russian literary movements and authors, including Alexander Pushkin, Nikolai Gogol, Fyodor Dostoevsky, Ivan Turgenev, and Anton Chekhov. We will consider their place in the history of European literature and their interaction with their literary forbears and less known contemporaries. While our class will remain rooted in the 19th century, the novels we will read – such as Crime and Punishment – have transcended their specific historical context to become timeless international classics. They achieved their status by their brilliant explorations of universal themes, such as the conflict between generations, and the role of the individual in society.

This course is taught entirely in English. No previous knowledge of Russian literature is required. Satisfies the General Education Requirements in Humanities. Satisfies Russian Minor “Core Course” Requirement. Satisfies elective requirements for International Studies and Comparative Literature.
