Cervantes and Dostoevsky Lecture October 10 at Marshall
In his presentation, Prof. Gratchev will examine how Cervantes’ classic novel, Don Quixote, affected Dostoevsky and his great works, specifically Crime and Punishment, The Idiot and Brothers Karamazov. His lecture is being presented by Marshall’s College of Liberal Arts.
Gratchev is an assistant professor of Spanish at Marshall University. He received his first M.A. in Saint Petersburg, Russia and his second M.A. at the University of Alverta, Canada. He received his Ph.D. at Purdue University. The main area of his research is Spanish Literature of Renaissance and Baroque combined with a keen interest in Spanish Cinema.
“We are very fortunate to have Professor Gratchev in our department of modern languages as he brings considerable skill in teaching languages and foreign literature,” said Dr. David Pittenger, dean of the College of Liberal Arts. “His broad ranging interest in literature helps us understand the evolution of the novel as an art and a window into minds of others.”
Gratchev’s lecture is free to the public.
