An intriguing confession of a doctor’s romantic involvement with a beautiful, 20-year-old patient. Followed by Turgenev’s exquisite, often meditative descriptions of the Russian countryside and mysterious herbalist Kassyan, infatuated with Gamayane, a prophetic bird of Russian folklore, a symbol of wisdom and knowledge. Read in English.

"Somewhat different or at least more dramatic than the other stories contained in Turgenev's short story collection, the characters are so well defined and the situations as the physician describes them are so touching that the story seeps into the mind and remains there." (Grady Harp)
