Fathers and Children

by Ivan Turgenev, Michael Pursglove (Translator)
 

See All Formats & Editions

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.
