Anna Karenina in the Twenty-first Century: Shapify!

February 15 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

Nearly 150 years after its writing, Leo Tolstoy’s Anna Karenina continues to offer up new insights to readers and translators alike, discoveries arguably made possible by the passage of time. The novel’s most recent translation, by Marian Schwartz, takes a hard look at Tolstoy as a stylist and how he wielded aesthetics to bring home moral principles. In her talk, Schwartz will argue for a language-centric view of this masterpiece of Russian—and world—literature.   About the speaker:     Marian…

Mandelstam’s Venice and Some Forgotten Paintings

May 11, 2016 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm

“Venetian Life” (1920) is one of Osip Mandelstam’s most complex and semantically rich poems, and many a study has been devoted to deciphering this text. Even at the most rudimentary level, however, this project is far from complete. The principal genre-determining subtext of the poem has gone unnoticed, as have other intertextual connections. An examination of newly discovered pictorial subtexts demonstrates the decisive part played by ecphrasis in the poem and enables one to adopt the author’s genre positioning of…
