You’re in for a delightful surprise if you’re one of the many people who believe all Russian literature is daunting and difficult. Ivan Turgenev’s stories have enchanted generations with delicate prose, marvelously subtle irony, and richly crafted characters. Set against the serene backdrop of the Russian countryside, Fathers and Sons is the story of Arcady Kirsanov, a young man who returns from college to his father’s country manor with his radical friend Bazarov in tow. Behind Bazarov’s chilling intellect hides a heart of compassion and kindness-a heart that will unwittingly change the Kirsanovs’ lives forever.

About the Author

Ivan Sergeyevich Turgenev (1818–1883) was the first Russian writer to gain a wide reputation in Europe. He witnessed the February Revolution in Paris (1848), and his subsequent connection with reform groups in Russia, along with his sympathetic 1852 eulogy of Nikolai Gogol (who satirized the corrupt bureaucracy of the Russian empire), led to his arrest and one-month imprisonment in St. Petersburg. In 1879 the honorary degree of doctor of civil law was conferred upon him by the University of Oxford.
