RUSS 460 - Russian Poetry
Why can four regularly rhymed lines of iambic tetrameter make a Russian's heart soar yet leave an American with the mere aftertaste of a limerick? What can we learn about the eternally enigmatic Russian soul based on metric patterns, rhyming schemes, and the logic of metaphors? Will you read (or write) poetry differently after assuming a Russian's view of it?  Conducted in Russian.
