Class Details

We are fast approaching the one-hundredth anniversary of Russia’s Great October Revolution, a political event that had prodigious cultural consequences and eventually polarized artists and intellectuals alike. Nowhere is this struggle more prominently played out than in the pages of Russian/Soviet literature. In this course, we will read a variety of works by canonical and non-canonical writers and consider the many forces-historical, political, spiritual, ethnic, and cultural-that shaped national belles lettres in the course of the 20th century.
