Reading Pushkin in Russian is a rich reward for the hard work of studying the Russian language. This seminar is for students who are at or above the third year of language study. The main focus will be on EVGENY ONEGIN, but we will also read Pushkin's lyric poems, SKAZKI, KAPITANSKAIA DOCHKA, MALENKIE TRAGEDII, and MEDNYI VSADNIK. All Pushkin readings will be in Russian; class discussions will be in Russian and in English; some biographical and historical background reading will be in English.
Pushkin devoted his life to expressing Russian reality in terms of western literary genres and styles. Intercultural literacy is a core concept of the course.
