Overview

Turgenev is an author who no longer belongs to Russia only. During the last fifteen years of his life he won for himself the reading public, first in France, then in Germany and America, and finally in England. In his funeral oration the spokesman of the most artistic and critical of European nations, Ernest Renan, hailed him as one of the greatest writers of our times: 'The Master, whose exquisite works have charmed our century, stands more than any other man as the incarnation of a whole race,' because 'a whole world lived in him and spoke through his mouth.' Not the Russian world only, we may add, but the whole Slavonic world, to which it was 'an honour to have been expressed by so great a Master.'

Like all Turgenev's novels, Rudin is very enjoyable reading. There seems to be a sad, gloomy strain running through the book. While not as great as Fathers and Sons or Virgin Soil, Rudin is a work well worth buying and savoring. All of the characters are distinctive and interesting. Rudin turns out to be a complex, yet sympathetic individual. The love story is poignant.
