RUSS 260
Fall 2020 not offered
Crosslisting: REES 260

A seminar devoted to close reading of the original text of Dostoevsky's 1879-80 novel. All students will be required to read the entire text in English, and each week specific passages will be read in Russian. In class we will analyze and discuss the text in Russian. Students will give presentations about critical works related to the novel and to Dostoevsky's work in general. Dostoevsky's novel enters into a great dialogue with the political, historical, philosophical, and religious discourses that were prevalent in 19th-century Russia. Study of the novel entails learning the various languages of 19th-century Russian culture. 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.
