First Love

by Ivan Turgenev

The title of the novella is almost an adequate summary in itself. The "boy-meets-girl-then-loses-her" story is universal but not, I think, banal - despite a surprise ending which notoriously turns out to be...

On the eve of the Crimean war a young woman, Elena, is pursued by two men. She disappoints them and her affected, social-climbing family when she marries a Bulgarian revolutionary. Sickness and war intervene...


First Love and the Diary of a Superfluous Man

The Diary of a Superfluous Man

First Love

by Ivan Turgenev & Constance Garnett

"The great thing is to lead a normal life, and not be the slave of your passions. What do you get if not?"

One of Russian literature's most renowned love stories—a vivid and sensitive account of adolescent...


Fathers and Sons

Based on Ivan Turgenev's novel of the same name, Frank J. Morlock's new play clearly dramatizes the societal divisions in mid-nineteenth-century Russia, deftly contrasting the defenders of the old regime with...
