Short Prose of the 20th Century
RUSS 285
Spring 2011 not offered
Crosslisting: REES 285

At the beginning of the 20th century, many Russian writers turned away from the monumentality of the realist novel to miniature forms such as lyric poems and short stories. This course will investigate one of the period's most interesting genres, the collection of short prose pieces that often mixed fiction, nonfiction, and literary criticism, "held together not only by the interest of the separate parts, but by the interest of their linkages as well" (Shklovsky). Russian examples of the genre will be compared to similar works by European and Latin American writers. All work will be done in English.
