RUSS 465 - Russian Poetry: Sin & Grace
In Russian culture, poetic quotes and associations provide basic units of meaning and reference.  This course teaches students about Russia's poetic tradition and its formative role in Russian culture, by training them in the skills of interpreting poetry through structural and intertextual analysis. The former entails patterns in syntax and prosody, while the latter addresses mutual quotation and allusions. In order to impart to American students the cultural relevance of Russian poetry, we shall start with later poets and examine how and why they use references to the earlier ones. Taught in Russian.
