Intermediate Russian I

Mark R. Pettus

Using original textbooks that focus on the Imperial period of Russian culture by incorporating literature and paintings from the period, we will look at more advanced grammar topics, such as prefixed verbs of motion and de-verbal forms (verbal adjectives, adverbs and nouns), that are essential for reading literary Russian. Later in the semester, we will read a selection of classical Russian poetry and prose, from such authors as Pushkin, Lermontov, Chekhov, Nekrasov, and Tolstoy. All readings will be done in the original, with extensive vocabulary and notes provided.
