Beauty is a terrible and awful thing! It is terrible because it has not been fathomed, for God sets us nothing but riddles. Here the boundaries meet and all contradictions exist side by side.
The four sessions explore Dostoevsky’s novel in its literary, political, religious and psychological contexts. There will be close attention to the text and no required outside reading.
The class will use Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky’s award-winning translation.
Robert L. Belknap is professor emeritus of Russian at Columbia University. He is the author of The Structure of The Brothers Karamazov and The Genesis of The Brothers Karamazov.
