CL 161 Literary Masters of Tsarist Russia

After centuries of standing on the periphery of the European literary world, Russian authors burst onto the scene early in the nineteenth century and provided some of the richest, most influential texts in world literature. This course will give you the opportunity to read these great works and famous authors, from early Romantic poets, such as Alexander Pushkin and Mikhail Lermontov, to later novelist, such as Leo Tolstoy and Fyodor Dostoevsky, to masters of short stories, such as Anton Chekhov.
