Course Description

This course explores the works of Russia's great "seer of the flesh," Lev Nikolaevich Tolstoy, particularly his progression from idealizing family life and the Russian state to renouncing sexual love and national allegiances. Our focus will primarily rest on his shorter works, but for the sake of experiencing the reading of a long Russian classic and one that remains Tolstoy’s most popular novel, we will cover Anna Karenina.
