How do great works of art, such as "The Brothers Karamazov" or "The Master and Margarita" ask profound questions about human agency and the divine, as well as the existence of good and evil?
How do stories and poems offer penetrating insights into the social mores of the day?
This is a very flexible offering. It could be an insightful conversation about a classic work of literature or a contemporary one. Natalya would provide study notes, help with close reading, and offer socio-historical context.
