The Kreutzer Sonata with Dr. Tatyana Gershkovich

The Kreutzer Sonata with Dr. Tatyana Gershkovich

Show Notes

This week, Matt and Cameron dive into a work that’s been on the sidelines for far too long: The Kreutzer Sonata by Leo Tolstoy, along with the extremely helpful Dr. Tatyana Gershkovich. She is the author of Art in Doubt: Tolstoy, Nabokov, and the Problem of Other Minds (Northwestern UP, 2022), and essays published in PMLA, the Slavic and Eastern European Journal, the Journal of the History of Ideas, the Paris Review, and more. Come along with us to understand the unreliability of the narrator.

Major themes: Moral Tracts, suspicious reading, bad marriages

The music used in this episode was “Старое Кино / Staroye Kino,” by Перемотка / Peremotka. You can find more of their work on Bandcamp and Youtube.
