Dostoevsky's novel enters into a great dialogue with the political, historical, philosophical, and religious discourses that were prevalent in 19th-century Russia.

Close reading of THE BROTHERS KARAMAZOV in Russian will teach the genres and styles that Dostoevsky weaves together in his great novel. Class will be conducted in Russian.
