- This course is a general survey of Russian Modernist texts in prose and poetry, and the interconnections between new ideas in literature, visual arts, and music from the Futurism of the 1900s to the Socialist Realism of the late 1920s. Texts include the novels Master & Margarita by Mikhail Bulgakov; Envy by Yury Olesha (described by Nabokov as the best novel produced in the Soviet Union), and the dystopia We by Evgeny Zamyatin, a novel which is said to have influenced Aldous Huxley's Brave New World and George Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four. This course will be taught in conjunction with the Futurism and Soviet Poster exhibitions at the NU Block Museum of Art; some classes will take place at the museum.
