Russia's Golden Age

Readings: Selections by Pushkin, Tolstoy, Dostoevsky, and others.

Russian realism blossomed with the novels of Tolstoy and Dostoevsky, Chekhov's and Stanislavsky’s drama, and with the music of Mussorgsky, Tchaikovsky, and Rachmaninoff. Less known in the West are the equally extraordinary paintings of Repin, Levitan, Kramskoy, and Serov. The artists of this era were united by an exploration of life's timeless and profound questions: What does it mean to live a fulfilling life? Is there a God? How to understand the complex relationships between men and women? What is a just society? How do we balance modernity and tradition?

This trip will focus on a vitally important time and place in cultural history. We will examine how all the arts adapted Realism to their different media, brilliantly reflecting the common and burning issues of their day.
