"Yes, man is broad, too broad, indeed. I'd have him narrower", said famously one of Dostoyevsky's characters.


Giant Russian writers as Dostoyevsky, Tolstoy, Gogol, Turgenev, Lermontov and Pushkin are renowned for probing the depth of the human soul. In this course, we will witness the rise of the great Russian novel and read several salient literary works of the 19th century, which is the period traditionally called the "Golden Age of Russian literature."
