RUSS 017. First-Year Seminar: Love and Sex in Russian Literature
(Cross-listed as LITR 017R )
Best known for political priorities and philosophical depth, Russian literature has also devoted many works to the eternal concern of love and sex. We will read significant and provocative works from traditional folk tales through the 20th century to discuss their construction of these most "natural" impulses -and how they imagine the relationship of human attraction to art, politics and philosophy.
