Courses: Serious Play/Pushkin & Gogol (RUSSB221001)

Spring 2009

Class Number: 1295
This course explores major contributions to the modern Russian
literary tradition by its two founding fathers, Aleksander Pushkin and
Nikolai Gogol. Comparing short stories, plays, novels, and letters
written by these pioneering artists, the course addresses Pushkin's
and Gogol's shared concerns about human freedom, individual will,
social injustice, and artistic autonomy, which each author expressed
through his own distinctive filter of humor and playfulness.
