Turgenev I.S. Fathers and Sons turgenev fathers
`Fathers and Sons` is Turgenev`s most acclaimed and influential work, and is a story of universal significance through its depiction of contemporary Russian life. The novel concentrates on the conflict between generations, with the nihilist Bazarov representing the revolt of the young, free-thinking intellectuals who strive for reality rather than negativity, as he embodies the spirit of revolution. Pavel Petrovich speaks for the older generation which accepts the need for gradual reform, up to a point. The novel caused a bitter furore after its publication in 1862, which, a year later, drove Turgenev from Russia.

Turgenev, Ivan Sergeevich Fathers and Children turgenev fathers
"Fathers and Children", arguably the first modern novel in the history of Russian literature, shocked readers when it was first published in 1862 - the controversial character of Bazarov, a self-proclaimed nihilist intent on rejecting all existing traditional values and institutions, providing a trenchant critique of the established order. Turgenev's masterpiece investigates the growing nihilist movement of mid-nineteenth-century Russia - a theme which was to influence Dostoevsky and many other European writers - in a universal, and often hilarious, story of generational conflict, and the clash between the old and the new.

Fathers and Sons turgenev fathers
Fathers and Sons is one of the greatest of nineteenth century Russian novels and has long been acclaimed as Turgenev's finest work. It is a political novel set in a domestic context with a universal theme - the generational divide between fathers and sons. Set in 1859 at the moment when the Russian autocratic state began to move hesitantly towards social and political reform, the novel explores the conflict between the liberal-minded fathers of Russian reformist sympathies and their free-thinking intellectual sons whose revolutionary ideology threatens the stability of the state. At its centre is Evgeny Bazarov, a strong-willed antagonist of all forms of social orthodoxy who proclaims himself a nihilist and believes in the need to overthrow all the institutions of the state. As the novel develops Bazarov's political ambitions become fatally meshed with emotional and private concerns, and his end is a tragic failure. The novel caused a bitter furore on its publication in 1862, and this, a year later, drove Turgenev from Russia.

Turgenev I.S. Father and Sons turgenev fathers
Bazarov - a gifted, impatient, and caustic young man - has journeyed from school to the home of his friend Arkady Kirsanov. But soon Bazarov’s outspoken rejection of authority and social conventions touches off quarrels, misunderstandings, and romantic entanglements that will utterly transform the Kirsanov household and reflect the changes taking place all across nineteenth-century Russia. Fathers and Sons enraged the old and the young, reactionaries, romantics, and radicals alike when it was first published. At the same time, Turgenev won the acclaim of Flaubert, Maupassant, and Henry James for his craftsmanship as a writer and his psychological insight. Fathers and Sons is now considered one of the world’s greatest novels. A timeless depiction of generational conflict during social upheaval, it vividly portrays the clash between the older Russian aristocracy and the youthful radicalism that foreshadowed the revolution to come - and offers modern-day readers much to reflect upon as they look around at their own tumultuous, changing world.
