Fathers and Sons | [Ivan Turgenev]

Fathers and Sons

Arguably Turgenev's greatest work and certainly one of the most controversial Russian novels ever written, Fathers and Sons incited protests from all branches of Russian society. Turgenev dramatized the volcanic issues that divided a Russia torn by social unrest and conflict: peasants against masters, generations against generations, and fathers against sons.

Audible Editor Reviews

Before the great Russian novels of Tolstoy and Dostoevsky, Ivan Turgenev’s Fathers and Sons created a furor and set Russian realism on its epic course. Performed by Walter Zimmerman in an understated, detailed, and empathic style, Turgenev brings the listener into a multi-generational story that was originally published in 1862. The plot focuses on a young generation of philosophical nihilists (the sons) in opposition to the older generation of their traditionalist fathers, and throws politics and romance into the mix. Critically revered for its treatment of some of the great themes and ideas of all literature, Fathers and Sons resonates far beyond the time and place in which it was written.

    "Fathers and Sons"

    Turgenev's Fathers and Sons is wonderfully read by Walter Zimmerman. This adds greatly to the pleasure of reading this short book about the relationship between two sons and their fathers and the inevitable fault lines between them.
