Conversations with Chekhov

First-Year Seminar Program 079

Usual Description

Through a careful but open-ended reading of his stories, novellas, plays, letters, and non-fiction, this course will reflect on the ways that Chekhov (1860-1904) can still serve as a subtly subversive model for thinking about the complexities of modern life and the human condition. We will explore what makes Chekhov specifically Russian, and will look to his works for insight into how to write in precise, supple, and interesting way.
