This course studies the life and work of Fedor Dostoevsky, locating him and his oeuvre in the cultural and intellectual history of Russia, while also examining an extensive and representative sample of his prose fiction in detail. It is intended both for those with a general interest in Russian literature, and for those with a specific, scholarly or literary interest in Dostoevsky. Poor Folk, The Double, Notes from the Underground, Crime and Punishment, and The Brothers Karamazov are among the works read and analyzed. Dostoevsky’s contribution to literary and literary-political discussions of the time is assessed.

Writing requirements for the course are: two 2,500-word papers, and three in-class writing assignments. Final grades are awarded on the following basis: each in-class assignment is worth 15% of the final grade; each paper is worth 20 %; performance in class discussions is worth 15%. There is no final examination.
