Über den Autor

Ivan Sergeyevich Turgenev was a preeminent Russian novelist, short story writer, poet, and playwright of the 19th century, belonging to the generation of writers that included Fyodor Dostoevsky and Leo Tolstoy. Born on November 9, 1818, in Oryol, Russia, Turgenev is best known for his profound explorations of rural society and the intricacies of the human heart. He was a major advocate for the abolishment of serfdom, an advocacy visible in his writings. Turgenev's novel 'Fathers and Sons' is often hailed as one of the greatest achievements of 19th-century literature, introducing the character Bazarov, a prototype of the nihilist movement. However, his shorter work, 'First Love' is equally significant, reflecting his delicate narrative style and psychological depth. It is a poignant tale that captures the complexities and the ephemeral nature of adolescent love. Turgenev's style is characterized by his lyrical prose, attention to detail, and the evocative portrayal of the Russian landscape and psyche. He remains a vital figure in Russian literature, influencing not only his contemporaries but also future generations of writers worldwide. Despite facing criticism from Russian radicals for his political stances and from the government for his critiques of Russian society, Turgenev's work has endured throughout the years, continuing to delight and move readers even in the modern era. He passed away on September 3, 1883, in Bougival, France.
