"Why Turgeniev is quickly turning into a favourite"
Russian literature exudes an atmosphere of mysticism, which is said to be a natural result of the simplicity of her people. Often, instead of being "about" anything, Russian stories sometimes seem to be the "thing" in itself. Be this as it may, it is an undeniable fact that with hardly any portent of future greatness to come, Russian literature suddenly sprang fully developed into existence in the 19th century.
The epic sweep of Turgenev's 19th century literary masterpiece is brought to the stage by one of Ireland's greatest living dramatists. Fathers and Sons captures the ongoing clash of generations and philosophies. Set in a Russian country estate, Friel's powerful and resonant adaptation examines the inevitable conflict between the urgency of youth and the entrenchment of age.

Una novela sobre la lucha de generaciones.

"Turgenev's Famous Novel..."
Set in Baden-Baden, Smoke is Ivan Turgenev's most cosmopolitan novel. First published in 1867, it is an exquisite study of politics and society and an enduringly poignant love story. Smoke, with its European setting, barbed wit, and visionary call for Russia to look west, became the center of a famous philosophical breach between Turgenev and Dostoevsky.
"Smoke will satisfy"
This guided meditation takes you through a bottomless sea of woodland landscapes with the leaves on the trees that are at one moment transparent as emeralds; the next, they condense into golden, almost black green. Somewhere far off, at the end of a slender twig, a single leaf hangs motionless against the blue patch of transparent sky, and beside it another trembles with the motion of a fish on the line, as though moving of its own will, not shaken by the wind.

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.
When Arcady Kirsanov returns from college to the country manor of his father, he brings along his radical friend Bazarov, a nihilist who believes in nothing and respects no one. But behind the intellect of this caustic, impatient man is a heart full of compassion and kindness that will change the Kirsanov's lives forever.
Here is the brilliant story "Mumu" (1854) by the great Russian writer Ivan Sergeyevich Turgenev (1818-1883).
Padri e figli, del 1862, il capolavoro di Turgenev, è considerato da molti come una delle creazioni meglio riuscite della novellistica dell'ottocento, anche se i critici russi contemporanei non lo apprezzarono. Nel romanzo l'autore descrive in modo estremamente efficace il primo diffondersi delle idee rivoluzionarie e nichiliste in Russia. Il personaggio principale del romanzo, Bazarov, è un propugnatore di tali idee, ma si trova in conflitto con le proprie emozioni, che la sua mente non esita a tacciare come “sciocchi romanticismi”.
Arkady Kirsanov has just graduated from the University of Petersburg and returns with a friend, Bazarov, to his father's modest estate in an outlying province of Russia. His father, Nikolai, gladly receives the two young men at his estate, called Marino, but Nikolai's brother, Pavel, soon becomes upset by the strange new philosophy called nihilism which the young men advocate. Read in Russian, by Lev Durov, Aristarkh Livanov, Anna Kamenkova and others.
An audiobook adaptation of Turgenev's story set on the outskirts of Moscow, in the house of an old widow. The story was written in 1854 by Ivan Turgenev, a great Russian novelist of the nineteenth century. Turgenev wrote Mumu with such vivid images and reflections of the state of tsarist Russia that this piece, together with his other stories, was credited with having influenced public opinion in favour of the abolition of serfdom in 1861.
