A Matter of Life and Death: Fiction in the Soviet Era
RUSS 206
Fall 2006 not offered
Crosslisting: REES 206

The great Russian writers of the 20th century risked their lives in insisting on moral absolutes to counter Soviet doctrine. Zamyatin's WE Inspired BRAVE NEW WORLD and 1984; Bulgakov's MASTER AND MARGARITA remained hidden for 27 years; Solzhenitsyn risked submitting IVAN DENISOVICH during Khrushchev's Thaw--each decade has its characteristic masterpiece. Students who wish to read excerpts from the course offerings in the original Russian should see the instructor to enroll in a half-credit tutorial.
