教育目標

By the end of the course, students will have: 1). gained a comprehensive awareness of Anton Chekhov’s works, including his fiction, plays, and non-fiction; 2). read a number of Chekhov’s longer short stories and novellas, which are among his best works but also among the least studied; 3). assessed Chekhov’s reception among artists writing in English since his death in 1904, including analyses of fiction and drama of these writers; and 4). have sufficiently studied several modern and contemporary writers who have been deeply influenced by Chekhov’s fiction, to be able to analyze the intertextual play among and between their texts and related works by Chekhov.

課程概述

Anton Pavlovich Chekhov (1860-1904) led an incredibly rich and creative life and his literary career has been massively important to modern literature, especially to modern drama and short fiction. This course will introduce the student to Chekhov’s most influential short stories as well as to some of his longer fiction, non-fiction, and to some of his plays. We will also examine his legacy among modern writers in the English-speaking world by comparing the themes, structures, and insights found in Chekhov’s most important fiction and drama to works by writers such as James Joyce, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Flannery O’Connor, Raymond Carver, William Trevor, Tobias Wolff, Alice Munro, David Mamet, and David Hare. Chekhov’s work is a major force in modern world literature but because, outside of Russian and Russian studies, we read him in translation he is infrequently taught in English and American literature programs such as ours. This course addresses that shortfall.
