ABOUT THIS BOOK

This book transcends the limits of times and cultures though set in a definite time frame in Russian history. It critically views the conflict between the younger members of the Russian intelligentsia who became prominent after the Crimean War, and the old intellectuals.

AUTHOR OF THE BOOK

Born in 1818 at Orel in Central Russia, Ivan Sergeyevich Turgenev’s career was dotted by a number of literary disputes. He was imprisoned for a month after publishing an article on the death of Gogol, and was subsequently banished to his estate where he wrote a series of novels and short stories. He died in 1883.
