What did the Russians learn from reading French novels? How did they respond to them in writing their own? We will examine how themes taken from one national literature are self-consciously transformed by another while learning to read from the author's point of view.
Writing: Three short papers will be peer reviewed. A fourth paper will be planned with the instructor. Speaking: Student class presentations will be based on guidelines and assessed.
