Searingly hot in the summer, bitterly cold in the winter, the ancestral estate of the Golovlyov family is the end of the road. There Anna Petrovna rules with an iron hand over her servants and family -- until she loses power to the relentless scheming of her hypocritical son Judas. One of the great books of Russian literature, Judas Golovlyov is a study of decaying gentry; a vivid picture of a condemned and isolated outpost of civilization. Judas Golovlyov -- a landowner and main personage of the novel -- was called Judas for his bigotry, treacherous hypocrisy and callousness. The name Judas Golovlyov has become a synonym for these negative traits - even being used by Lenin in this way in articles in 1914 and 1922.
