First Loveby Ivan Sergeevich Turgenev
Synopses & Reviews
Love can be surprising. Love can be heartbreaking. Love can be an art. But love is the singular emotion that all humans rely on most . . . and crave endlessly, no matter what the cost.
Isaiah Berlin's translation reproduces in finely wrought English the original story's simplicity, lyricism, and sensitivity.
Set in the world of 19th-century Russia's fading aristocracy, Turgenev's story depicts a boy's growth of knowledge and mastery over his own heart as he awakens to the complex nature of adult love.
Powerful love story translated from the original Russian text.
