N. Pollak.

The nineteenth century was the first great age of Russian poetry – beginning with Pushkin’s predecessors, continuing through Lermontov, and ending with Tiutchev and Fet and anticipations of modernism.  In this course you’ll learn how to read short poems carefully, you’ll expand and deepen your understanding of the Russian language, and you’ll gain insight into one of the world’s major literary traditions. Satisfies the Russian Minor requirement for Russian literature with reading in the original.
