"Isaac Babel writes in the same tone about the stars and gonorrhea" (Viktor Shklovsky). This seminar explores the literary, theatrical and cinematic work of Odessan author Isaac Babel (1894-1940), the Jewish Russian master of the short story. The course will include close readings of his texts, with attention to his contexts and legacy beyond Russian letters. Taught in English; some familiarity with Russian literature is recommended. This course fulfills the “single-text/author” requirement for Literary Studies majors.
