I. A. Goncharov. Oblomov Part One, Chapters I - II. Uris Library: PG3337.G6 O12 1954 (several copies). Olin Library: PG3337.G6 O12 1979, PG3337.G6 O12 1915, PG3337.G6 O12 1987, and more on the same shelf. On the Web: http://lib.web-malina.com/getbook.php?bid=1553&page=1.

Come to class ready to share any interesting observations, comparisons, questions, and ideas. This is not a lecture course; most of the time, the burden of keeping the class going is on the students. You must actively participate in the discussion and demonstrate that you know the text well and have given it a lot of thought. This is a "people's course," which at Cornell means that the class will be productive and enjoyable only if you make it so :).
