    In the quiet, sleepy, out of the way areas of rural Russia under the autocratic Czars, during the mid nineteenth century, nothing happens, still reality will show its unpleasant dark aspects as other things appear, the catalyst , two university educated arrogant young men return home, they believe that their flame of light will transform the nation for the better However the students still have a great deal to learn about the ancient land Arkady Kirsanov under the influence of the bright Evgeny Bazarov studying to be a doctor but an ardent, passionate nihilist his real occupation destroy all and rebuild a better world , brings to his widowed father s Nicholas large estate this strange , unsettling person, he dominates the novel, in fact the writer s Ivan Turgenev s best fictional character, he himself acknowledgedUncle Paul is a suave, debonair man, a former Don Juan, an unhappy love affair caused his exile from glittering Saint Petersburg , a supporter of the old customs , feels threatened by the new breeze His amiable brother Nicholas is tolerant, the inevitable st...

    Fathers and Sons FS apparently pleased no one on in Russia on publication, and if not precisely shocked the muchadumbre, then surely ruffled feathers and rubbed salt in fresh wounds that, in any event, is the general promise in the blurb on the back cover of the book Goody I like a scandal better than the next person, for sure So I tore into it with gusto.Alas, though There is no scandal to be had here I mean, not even remotely not even a whiff of it The big brouhaha seems to evolve around the character of Bazarov, a self proclaimed nihilist, who does naught else but pontificate grandly throughout rejects everything on principle or perhaps as a principle as being outmoded, unscientific and stupid , but has no new platform to offer As he puts it, first lets destroy everything, raze it to the ground, and we ll worry about re building later Having said that, there is no razing to be done here either FS is really very peaceful the plot line is singularly simple in fact, if it were any simpler, there d be NO plot line Two rather lazy gradu...

    I had some doubts upon reading Turgenev for the first time, could he really stand up with the likes of Tolstoy and Dostoyevsky , simple answer, yes Fathers and Sons, although not on an epic level in terms of length, does an authentic and realistic job of presenting an account of upper class 19th century Russian provincial life, and indeed it doesn t surprise me he gained greater respect in some parts in regards to the two other Russian greats Turgenev arguably had better popularity due to his deeper humanity, where the psychological and emotional complexities of his principal characters are draw from first introduction as having a natural inherent intelligence Whereas the previous two tend to often use a trauma, crisis, or inner conflict within Although criticized by his fellow liberals, it was in fact Turgenev, who, from his death bed persuaded Tolstoy to carry on writing.This novel takes place in the 1860 s, the Napoleonic war is receding, and a new chapter has begun.The dominant theme is all in it s title...

    Fathers feel that they now belong to bygone times and sons feel that they have learned enough to indoctrinate new scientific theories and philosophies to the fathers This happens today and this happened in this realistic classical work, based on the Russian society of mid 19th century The story begins with two brothers First one, Nikolai Petrovitch, who had lost his wife, but there remained a sense of well spent life, as his son was growing up under his eyes and, second Pavel Petrovitch, on the contrary, was a solitary bachelor, who was entering upon a certain kind of indefinite twilight period of regrets that are akin to hopes, and hopes that are akin to regrets, when youth is over, while old age has not yet come.On one fine day of May 1859, Nikolai receives his son Arkady, who has just finished his graduation from University of Petersberg So here you are, a graduate at last, and come home again, said Nikolai Petrovitch, touching Arkady now on the shoulder, now on the knee At last.Here comes the most interesting character of this novel Mr Bazarov, who is a friend of Arkady and has returned with him He stays at the estate of Arkady s father for some time before going to his own family place.Bazarov a very clever and intelligent young man who has a strong sense of conviction and aggression about his thoughts and words He scorns art, family life, and women He is representative of the theory of Nihilism I did not know if this concept of nihilism was alread...

    If you want to read a great Russian novel, but your wrists are to weak for Karenina or Brothers K, this is your jam It s almost allegorical in its deployment of the characters various philosophies, but they re so human it s like watching Chekhov play across the page For a book written in the mid late 19th century, it s amazingly relevant a pithy study of conservati...

    This book is a real classic of russian literature.The language is understandable and psychological depth The main character Basarov is the first nihilist of world literature, and rejects all conventional moral concepts Even in love, he sees nothing but the helplessness of lonely people and distances himself from her When he finally falls in love, his worldview collapses Also next to t...

    Tremendous Forget the patchy, barely coherent A Hero of Our Time This is your pre Tolstoy, pre Dostoevsky almost excusing a decade or two Russian masterpiece Do you want to be a nihilist with a casual interest in botany and medicine Do you sneer at aristocratic values but have the hots for a milf with a vassal soaked estate Do you treat your father s house like a hotel, and only pay fleeting three year visits, during which you torment your poor mother and her servants Do you want to snog your best fr...

    He has no faith in princee ples, only in frogs.Turgenev has a reputation of being a novelists novelist admired by such fastidious readers as Gustave Flaubert, Henry James, and Joseph Conrad and now I can see why Though quite different in temperament, he reminds me of Jane Austen or E.M Forster in his seamless mastery of technique and his delicate touch Apart from the epilogue a 19th century staple , this novel makes do with very little of the cranking plot mechanics used by so many Victorian novelists Rather, Turgenev weaves naturalistic scenes together in such a way that the plot, though orderly indeed, is tactfully concealed, like a skinny mannequin under a billowing dress.But what is most impressive about this book is that, amid the sweetly flowing prose and the keen descriptions, Turgenev has inserted one of literature s great characters Bazarov, the nihilist a term he popularized On the one hand, Bazarov is the quintessential insufferable college graduate, pointing out the flaws in society without suggesting any remedies On the other hand, unlike most of these brave young souls, Bazarov is actually a man of genius with an oddly compelling worldview At the ve...

    My main issue with this book too short An odd thing to think of when the too short object in question is a Russian novel concerning cultural upheaval and aristocracy and all sorts of young ones running around screeching newfangled ideas at the top of their lungs, but tis true A while back, someone somewhere on Goodreads coined the term soap opera with brains , a literature type that hasn t popped up in my reading since The Age of Reason but can be much enjoyably, I dare say applied here with the highest accuracy Amidst all the generation gaps and work force revolutions and 1860 s Russia, there s quite a bit of drama that wears its intellectual trappings well enough to guarantee my enjoyment And let me tell you, it is a rare thing indeed that guarantees my enjoyment when it comes to lighthearted webs of relationships both familial and romantic, so major kudos to the novel for that sorry Turgenev, you re probably rolling in your grave at that last part, but it s true and i m grateful you should be happy about that.Besides the unexpectedly delightful people with their unexpectedly delightful issues in dealing with each other, there are, of course, the ideas and their tectonic shifts, fully embodied in the young co...
