Northern Naturalism: Chekhov, Ibsen, Strindberg

Russian Language, Literature and Culture 332

Usual Description

Three writers from northern Europe dominated and revitalized drama in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. We will read major and lesser-known works by Anton Chekhov, Henrik Ibsen, and August Strindberg to examine the particularly northern mode of theatrical naturalism they developed. We will consider adaptations of their works and reactions to their writings, including the symbolist dramas that functioned as both revolt and response to these authors’ plays. Lecture and discussion format. Taught in English
