RUSS-460 Poetry: The Intercultural Impossibility
Offered academic year 2007-2008
Faculty:
  • Meerson, Olga
  • 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.
    Credits: 3
    Prerequisites: RUSS 211 & 212, or RUSS 213 & 214, or equivalent
