    Russian literature of the 19th century is among the richest, most profound, and most human traditions in the world. This course explores this tradition by focusing on four giants: Ivan Turgenev, Fyodor Dostoevsky, Leo Tolstoy, and Anton Chekhov. Their works had an enormous impact on Russian understanding of the human condition.

    Where does The Modern Scholar rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    the final lecture of this course is a beautifully wrought, profound, discussion on, not only the uniqueness of Russian literature, but also the human condition. Dr. Knapp is a rare academic: her lectures are transcendent and provide, thru the lens of these great Russians, illuminations on what is means to be a human being.
