Publisher Comments:

“Turgenev to me is the greatest writer there ever was.”  —Ernest Hemingway

 
Arguably the first modern novel in the history of Russian literature, this story 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. Turgenevs masterpiece investigates the growing nihilist movement of mid-19th-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. This edition includes pictures and an extensive section about the author's life and works.
