This course provides an introduction to the major masterpieces of Russian fiction written in the last third of the 19th century. Amongst the works to be studied are such classics of world literature as Tolstoy’s Anna Karenina and Dostoevsky’s The Brothers Karamazov. We will also read some of Chekhov’s and Leskov’s best short stories. Texts will be analyzed in the context of the monumental changes Russian society was undergoing at that time. We will trace how writers positioned themselves with regard to the social, intellectual, and religious issues dividing their contemporaries. Topics include gender relations, love and modernity, the metaphysics of beauty, utopia, Russia and the West. No knowledge of Russian literature, language, or history is prerequisite
