This course gives you a rare opportunity to explore a short story by Mikhail Bulgakov, Heart of a Dog, and then see its brilliant screen adaptation which is believed to be of the best works of Russian cinema. We will study the main themes and characters, as well as historical and cultural background of the story, read some abstracts, watch the film and then discuss together how a short story written in 1925 was interpreted in more contemporary Russia. The course will be conducted mostly in English, with some commentary on the Russian language. Some knowledge of Russian would be beneficial.
