RUSN 388 - Revolution, Crime, and Romance in 20th Century Russian Literature (Taught in English)


Spring (3) Prokhorov (ALV, CSI, GER 5)

The Russian Revolution, the Apocalypse, and the Soviet Utopia became the major themes in 20th century Russian literature. The course examines how the revolutionary and counter-revolutionary sensibilities have influenced Russians' notions of self, creativity, crime, and romance in works by representative writers such as Babel, Bulgakov, Polevoi, Pasternak, Solzhenitsyn, Marinina, and others. Students with advanced language skills, with the consent of instructor, may take a 4th credit for reading and discussions (one additional hour per week) in the original language.
