«Lolita, Quiet Flows the Don, and Doctor Zhivago:
The Metaplot of a Revolutionary Novel»
February 7, Thursday. Elizabeth Hemmerdinger Center (Room 706, Hunter East). 4 pm.
Dmitry Bykov is one of Russia’s most versatile public intellectuals, a journalist, poet, novelist, critic, media figure and member of the political opposition. His strong opinions on politics, history, literature, film, education, and mass media resonate widely across the contemporary Russian society and beyond. His lecture at Hunter on three Russian authors whose names do not automatically come to mind together – Nabokov, Sholokhov and Pasternak – will address what, according to Bykov, they nonetheless share: the inner plot of a revolutionary novel.
