RUTR 2360 - Tales of Transgression

This course examines how Russian writers engage with ethical questions ranging from lofty pursuits of freedom and the meaning of life to more prosaic issues of personal responsibility and happiness. In the context of literary analysis, we explore such conceptual terms describing human activity as love and justice, right and wrong, good and evil. Texts by Dostoevsky, Leskov, Tolstoy, Ostrovsky, Chekhov, Olesha, and Petrushevskaya.
