Summary Дворянское гнездоДворянское гнездо

Дворянское гнездо review º 104 Notes of a Hunter He wrote several short novels like The Diary of a Superfluous Man Faust and The Lull In them Turgenev expressed the anxieties and hopes of Russians of his generation Amongst his other works are Liza A Nest of Nobles The Jew and Other Stories On the Eve A Reckless Character and Other Stories The Torrents of Spring and The Rendezvou. Excellent A short novel of finely observed characters who are caught in a time of such great change that the different generations might be measured in a decade rather than the usual uarter century The setting and ways of life are also nicely observed so that the reader gets a real feel for Russian life at the time and how it contrasts with European lifeThe two main characters Liza and Lavretsky are terrific and provide interesting arguments on behalf of Russia even if not everything goes their way The two main antagonists Panshin and Lavretsky s wife are also exuisitely drawn The latter two are Russians who ve been ruined by Europe but the German musician Lemm provides a terrific counterweight to thatTurgenev s underlying worldview seems pessimistic which usually alienates me from the writer and hisher works but in this case there is sadness rather than doom and there is beauty in the sadness as well as ultimately hope I ll certainly be reading

Дворянское гнездо review º 104 Ssics Russian literature and philology Turgenev was impressed with German Central European society and believed that Russia could best improve itself by imitating the West Like many of his educated contemporaries he was particularly opposed to serfdom He first made his name with A Sportsman's Sketches also known as Sketches From a Hunter's Album; or. Another wonderful book of Ivan Turgenev that combines the reflection on the present and the future of Russia of that time and its relationship with the West with a very beautiful love story The first he manages to do it in a simple way through the main story and the parallel with it without long discourses that extend into many pages So the writer brings us his thoughts in a way that is accessible and comprehensible The second which is the most important he begins to do it by introducing us the adorable Lisa who with her innocent heart who does not have a trace of malice in her wins the hearts of all and above all of the readers Of course the world we live in makes the happiness of such sensitive creatures very difficult and our heroine is not excluded from this something that gives a melancholy tone in our story that may also reflect a pessimistic perception of the author about the course of things although in the end I think there is plenty of room for optimism With all that I describe to you it was impossible for me to resist and not feel deeply touched by a book that will surely accompany me for a long time
