18-314 LITERARY GENIUS OF LEO TOLSTOY

David Stegink, Fridays 10 am - noon

Cactus Room, 11/9, 11/16, 11/30, 12/7, 12/14

Leo Tolstoy's life, times (19th c. Russia), and works will be explored with the objective of developing an understanding of his mind and art, an appreciation of his literary output, and an assessment of his unique contribution to literature, and "realism," which made for his being considered one of the world's greatest novelists. Participants will read and discuss Anna Karenina (including DVD viewing of a considerable portion of a wonderful BBC production). Please get the following text as soon as possible and begin reading early on (it's 817 pages!): the Penguin Classic,  translated by Pevear and Volokhonsky.
