Description

The folk tale (skazka) is one of the most popular and productive forms of verbal folklore in Russia, with an enormous range of narratives, characters, and situations. Folk tales reveal many aspects of traditional Russian folk life, from ancient beliefs to daily practices, and reflect key preoccupations of the Russian peasantry. This course introduces students to a wide selection of Russian animal, domestic, magic (fairy) and literary tales; explores the magic world of the Russian folktale, its language, plot structure and hidden symbolism as a genre of popular verbal narrative; examines the history of the collection and study of folk tales; and studies the aesthetic, social, cultural and psychological values they reflect.

Course Requirements:

Weekly reading and viewing assignments, class participation through >i-clickers, mid-course online test, a short final paper
