    When Arkady Petrovich comes home from college, his father finds his eager, naive son changed almost beyond recognition, for the impressionable Arkady has fallen under the powerful influence of the friend he has brought with him. A self-proclaimed nihilist, the ardent young Bazarov shocks Arkady's father by criticising the landowning way of life and by his outspoken determination to sweep away the traditional values of contemporary Russian society.

    Tolstoy considered "Asya", written in 1858, one of Turgenev's two best stories, along with "First Love". Asya is a tragic story of two Russians abroad who are in love but conceal it from each other. Constance Garrett and Isabel Hapgood translated Asya in antiquated style approximately 100 years ago. Despite the story's superb character portrayals, it has rarely been available since. This translation is based on the Russian text published in 1961 in Moscow by the Government Publishing House of Artistic Literature.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    In this 1860s Russian classic, Bazarov (the prototypical nihilist) argues with Pavel Kirsanov (the prototypical liberal of the 1840s generation) about the nature of nihilism and its usefulness to Russia, in an episode which personifies the struggle between the fathers (i.e., the liberals of the 1840s) and their nihilist "sons".

    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.

    One of the most controversial Russian novels ever written, Fathers and Sons dramatizes the volcanic social conflicts that divided Russia just before the revolution, pitting peasants against masters, traditionalists against intellectuals, and fathers against sons. It is also a timeless depiction of the ongoing clash between generations.

    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”.
