Is this novel any good? (no spoilers please) and, what translation is best? I don't think P&V have translated it, I usually just go with them when reading Russian literature. I'm sorry if this has been asked on here before and I'm being tedious, but I figured you guys know what you're talking about. Many Thanks.
Like most Russian novels of its times, Father and Sons was written about the nobility; but it pictured them in a changing world, not long before the serfs were declared free men. Turgenev gently mocked the nihilism of his most significant character, the young doctor, Bazarov, but he treated the ideas respectfully. Turgenev coined the term nihilism.;)
Hello, I need help with the above topic. Any help would be much appreciated. In Father And Sons, around Page 135, Viktor Sitnikov and Kukshina is introduced to the story. I have read the book over and still have no idea on their role and function in the novel. Any ideas? Regards Keisuke,
