  • ""This book 'is a description of the tendencies of Young Russia in the [eighteen] sixties, expressed through the hero Bazarov. These tendencies have since become widely known by the name of nihilism.'" Introduction: "The theme of this novel is the frequent conflict between the older and younger generation, which the author has rendered particularly touching by his representation of the 'confused efforts of the father to understand his son's new ideas, and the young man's vain efforts to convert his father.'" Pratt Alcove."
  • "This is a story of two sons who graduated college and returned home (to their fathers). The book goes on to describe the radically different lives of the two friends. We follow the downfalls and upswings of their lives and how it affects each other."

  • "When Fathers and Sons was first published in Russia, in 1862, it was met with a blaze of controversy about where Turgenev stood in relation to his account of generational misunderstanding. Was he criticizing the worldview of the conservative aesthete, Pavel Kirsanov, and the older generation, or that of the radical, cerebral medical student, Evgenii Bazarov, representing the younger one' The critic Dmitrii Pisarev wrote at the time that the novel "stirs the mind . . . because everything is permeated with the most complete and most touching sincerity." N. N. Strakhov, a close friend of Tolstoy and Dostoevsky, praised its "profound vitality." It is this profound vitality in Turgenev's characters that carry his novel of ideas to its rightful place as a work of art and as one of the classics of Russian Literature. From the Trade Paperback edition."@en
  • "As Arkady Kirsanov returns home after graduation, his father waits patiently for him'excited to see his much-loved son once again. But in returning home to a world that has remained static, Arkady and his friend Bazarov, a self-defined nihilist, find themselves wholly changed, and must now redefine old relationships'both their friendship with one another and their relationships with their fathers'from new perspectives. Ivan Turgenev's brilliant novel explores generational differences and their tragic consequences. The classic saga Fathers and Sons reveals the inescapable influence that fathers and sons have on each other's lives, and provides a realistic portrayal of the struggles of families and their ideologies in the face of social upheaval. Fathers and Sons is often regarded as the first modern novel in Russian literature, and has been adapted for the stage as Nothing Sacred, which was later made into a movie.

  • "Turgenev creates the Russian nihilist, Bazarov, the first modern revolutionary type in literature."@en
  • "Considered one of the world's greatest novels, this controversial classic offers modern readers a vivid, timeless depiction of the clash between the older Russian aristocracy and the youthful radicalism that foreshadowed the revolution. Includes a new Introduction. Reissue."
  • "Portrays the conflicts between the older aristocratic generation and the new democratic intelligentsia in Russia during the 1860s, called nihilists."
  • "Turgenev's great novel of generational conflict focuses on Bazarov, a young nihilist who is representative of the radical new generation in 1860s Russia."
  • "GENERAL & LITERARY FICTION. Fathers and Sons is one of the greatest nineteenth century Russian novels, and has long been acclaimed as Turgenev's finest work. It is a political novel set in a domestic context, with a universal theme, the generational divide between fathers and sons. Set in 1859 at the moment when the Russian autocratic state began to move hesitantly towards social and political reform, the novel explores the conflict between the liberal-minded fathers of Russian reformist sympathies and their free-thinking intellectual sons whos revolutionary ideology threatended the stability of the state. At its centre is Evgeny Bazorov, a strong-willed antagonist of all forms of social orthodoxy who proclaims himself a nihilist and believes in the new to overthrow all the institutions of the state. As the novel develops Bazarov's political ambitions become fatally meshed with emotional and private concerns, and his end is a tragic failure."
  • "Fathers and Sons is an 1862 novel by Ivan Turgenev, his best known work. The title of this work in Russian is Ottsy i Deti, which literally means "Fathers and Children"; the work is often translated to Fathers and Sons in English for reasons of euphony.-- Excerpted from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia."@en

Barnes & Noble Classics pulls together a constellation of influences—biographical, historical, and literary—to enrich each reader's understanding of these enduring works. Youth rebels. It's true today and it was true in Russia, in 1862, when Ivan Turgenev's Fathers and Sons first appeared. At the novel's center stands Evgeny Bazarov, medical student, doctor's son, and self-proclaimed nihilist. Bazarov rejects all authority, all so-called truths that are based on faith rather than science and experience. His ideas bring him into conflict with his best friend, recent graduate Arkady Kirsanov, with Arkady's family, with his own parents, and eventually with his emotions, when he falls helplessly in love with the beautiful Madame Odintsova. Turgenev's earlier A Sportsman's Sketches had helped hasten the liberation of the serfs in 1861. But the complex portrait of Bazarov, whose goals he admired but whose rejection of art and embrace of violence he could not accept, enraged both right and left. The right saw Fathers and Sons as a glorification of radical extremists; the left saw it as a denunciation of progress. Even today, readers argue over Turgenev's attitude towards Bazarov. But they can't resist the novel's power to grip the heart while engaging the mind. David Goldfarb is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Slavic Languages at Barnard College. He has published numerous scholarly articles as well as the Introduction and Notes to the Barnes & Noble Classics edition of Leo Tolstoy's The Death of Ivan Ilych and Other Stories."
  • "Bazarov, a nihilist, advocates a materialistic view of life and disappoints his adoring parents."
  • "Clashes and conflicts between fathers and sons are a story as old as humanity itself. Russian novelist Ivan Turgenev uses the turbulence of familial relations as a symbolic lens through which to explore the changing of the ideological guard in his native country. Turgenev's best-known work, Fathers and Sons is widely regarded as the first Russian novel to gain prominence and critical acclaim in Western literary circles."@en
  • "This is a story of two sons who graduated college and returned home (to their fathers). The book goes on to describe the radically different lives of the two friends. We follow the downfalls and upswings of their lives and how it affects each other. Quite a philosophical read."

  • "Turgenev's masterpiece about the conflict between generations is as fresh, outspoken, and exciting today as it was in when it was first published in 1862. The controversial portrait of Bazarov, the energetic, cynical, and self-assured 'nihilist' who repudiates the romanticism of his elders, shook Russian society. Indeed the image of humanity liberated by science from age-old conformities and prejudices is one that can threaten establishments of any political or religious persuasion, and is especially potent in the modern era.

This new translation, specially commissioned for the World's Classics, is the first to draw on Turgenev's working manuscript, which only came to light in 1988."
  • "Set against the serene backdrop of the Russian countryside, Fathers and Sons is the story of Arcady Kirsanov, a young man who returns from college to his father's country manor with his radical friend Bazarov in tow. Behind Bazarov's chilling intellect hides a heart of compassion and kindness -- a heart that will unwittingly change the Kirsanovs' lives forever."
