Ivan Turgenev (18181883) was a novelist, poet, and dramatist, and now ranks as one of the towering figures of Russian literature. This masterpiece is considered one of the greatest novels of the 19th century. Michael Pursglove edited editions of Tolstoy's Childhood and Sevastoopol Sketches.
Fathers and Childrenby Ivan Turgenev, Patrick Waddington, Constance Black Garnett
The character of Barzarov, the radical intellectual, moves like a storm cloud through this sensuous, beautifully paced account of provincial Russia in the period just before the Great Emancipation of the serfs in 1861. Turgenev's greatest literary creation is as compelling and as enigmatic as the country whose passions he so vividly represents.
