I help those with a reading knowledge of Russian to deepen their understanding of the Russian mind through guided reading and discussion of Russian poetry and prose, as well as listening to Russian “bards” and rock musicians, famous for the poetic quality of their lyrics.
The areas of my expertise include the poetry of Osip Mandelstam and Joseph Brodsky, as well as the Leningrad underground poetry of 1980-s.
I can also provide guidance in understanding Russian religious thought and Eastern Orthodox tradition (including the art of prayer, theology, liturgy, and mystagogy).
