Overview

With an introduction by Rosamund Bartlett and an afterword by Tatiana Tolstaya

Turgenev’s depiction of the conflict between generations and their ideals stunned readers when Fathers and Sons was first published in 1862. But many could also sympathize with Arkady’s fascination with its nihilist hero whose story vividly captures the hopes and regrets of a changing Russia.
