Description

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.

Professional reviews

"The latter half of the nineteenth century was a time of turmoil in Russian politics and society. As modernization and industrialization took place, the new generation challenged traditional society. Against this backdrop Turgenev presents a generational conflict through a cast of richly crafted characters and delicate prose. The narrator does not give his characters assertive voices, but portrays them thoughtfully, especially the extraordinary protagonist, Bazarov. Little is needed to convey the chilling intellect and compassionate heart of this complex character. This book about life and relationships will evoke a thoughtful mood in the listener. J.K.R.
