Fathers and Sons Summary


Fathers and Sons by Ivan Turgenev

'Aristocracy, liberalism, progress, principles...useless words! A Russian doesn't need them'

This humane, moving masterpiece of families, love, duels, heartache, failure and the clash between generations caused a scandal in nineteenth-century Russia with its portrayal of youthful nihilism.

A new series of twenty distinctive, unforgettable Penguin Classics in a beautiful new design and pocket-sized format, with coloured jackets echoing Penguin's original covers.

Fathers and Sons Reviews


If you want to get as close as an English reader can to enjoying Turgenev, Carson is probably the best -- Donald Rayfield * Times Literary Supplement *
Fathers and Sons was one of the first Russian novels to be translated for a wider European audience. It is a difficult art: in this superb new version, Peter Carson has succeeded splendidly -- Michael Binyon * The Times *
