Turgenev was the most liberal spirited and unqualifiedly humane of all the great nineteenth century Russian novelists and in i Virgin Soil i his biggest and most ambitious work he sought to balance his deep affection for his country and his people with his growing apprehensions about what their future held in store At the heart of the book is the story of a young man and a young woman torn between love and politics who struggle to make headway against the complacency of the powerful the inarticulate misery of the powerless and the stifling conventions of provincial life This rich and complex book at once a love story a devastating and bitterly funny social satire and perhaps most movingly of all a heartfelt celebration of the immense beauty of the Russian countryside is a tragic masterpiece in which one of the world s finest novelists confronts the enduring question of the place of happiness in a political world, No description available, Home of the Gentry is a novel by Ivan Turgenev published in the January issue of Sovremennik It was enthusiastically received by the Russian society and remained his least controversial and most widely read novel until the end of the th century It was turned into a movie by Andrey Konchalovsky in br br The novel s protagonist is Fyodor Ivanych Lavretsky a nobleman who shares many traits with Turgenev The child of a distant Anglophile father and a serf mother who dies when he is very young Lavretsky is brought up at his family s country estate home by a severe maiden aunt often thought to be based on Turgenev s own mother who was known for her cruelty, Returning to Russia from a tour in Italy twenty three year old Dimitry Sanin breaks his journey in Frankfurt There he encounters the beautiful Gemma Roselli who works in her parents patisserie and falls deeply and deliriously in love for the first time Convinced that nothing can come in the way of everlasting happiness with his fiancee Dimitry impetuously decides to begin a new life and sell his Russian estates But when he meets the potential buyer the intriguing Madame Polozov his youthful vulnerability makes him prey for a darker destructive infatuation br br A novel of haunting beauty Spring Torrents is a fascinating partly autobiographical account of one of Turgenev s favourite themes a man s inability to love without losing his innocence and becoming enslaved to obsessive passions
