RUSS 141 - Tolstoy in Battle (in English)
The representation of war in Tolstoy’s fiction, centered on a detailed analysis of War and Peace, with this classic novel considered in the context of the writer’s earlier and later war narratives, including Sebastopol Tales and “Hadji Murat.” Tolstoy is also viewed as a “combatant” in the sense of one who tirelessly challenged accepted notions in aesthetics, ethics, religion, philosophy, history, and politics. Nikolai Firtich.
