Nikolai Gogol is one of the most enigmatic and original Russian writers. In this course, we will focus on his Ukrainian and St. Petersburg tales, where witches fly to the moon, noses stroll the streets, overcoats turn into wives, and the devil lurks behind any corner. Readings will be supplemented by historical and critical information, as well as episodes from films to be shown in class.
Nine sessions. E - $285, L - $313.50
