On the Eve Though Essentially A Love Story With A Historical Background, On The Eve Hints In Its Title At Social And Political Implications Which No Russian Reader Could Miss When It Appeared In 1859 Turgenev S Study Of Elena Stahov, In Love With A Bulgarian Revolutionary, Is A Memorable Achievement Of Character Drawing, But The Authors Artistry Is Nowhere Clearly Shown Than In His Development Of The Minor Characters Turgenev S Touch Is Light And His Sense Of Humour Delicious, And The Story, As It Moves To Its Inevitable And Tragic Conclusion, Is Never Oppressive.Turgenev Is An Author Who No Longer Belongs To Russia Only During The Last Fifteen Years Of His Life He Won For Himself The Reading Public, First In France, Then In Germany And America, And Finally In England In His Funeral Oration The Spokesman Of The Most Artistic And Critical Of European Nations, Ernest Renan, Hailed Him As One Of The Greatest Writers Of Our Times The Master, Whose Exquisite Works Have Charmed Our Century, Stand Than Any Other Man As The Incarnation Of The Whole Race , Because A Whole World Lived In Him And Spoke Through His Mouth Not The Russian World Only, We May Add, But The Whole Slavonic World, To Which It Was An Honour To Have Been Expressed By So Great A Master As Regards His Method Of Dealing With His Material And Shaping It Into Mould, He Stands Even Higher Than As A Pure Creator Tolstoy Is Plastical, And Certainly As Deep And Original And Rich In Creative Power As Turgenev, And Dostoevsky Is Intense, Fervid, And Dramatic But As An Artist, As Master Of The Combination Of Details Into A Harmonious Whole, As An Architect Of Imaginative Work, He Surpasses All The Prose Writers Of His Country, And Has But Few Equals Among The Great Novelists Of Other Lands.

    This was the Turgenev that spoke most directly to me when I was young, which makes for a peculiarly intense reading experience now Yelena and Insarov are as if people known to me, I believe in them entirely and indeed the whole novel comes alive to me in that rare way A dangerous novel to do this with, as it is Turgenev at his most gloomy Although he took the plot from life, he wants to use it to dash our spirits with the futility of effort for he had these moods of pessimistic metaphysics This was the Turgenev that spoke most directly to me when I was young, which makes for a peculiarly intense reading experience now Yelena and Insarov are as if people known to me, I believe in them entirely and indeed the whole novel comes alive to me in that rare way A dangerous nov...

    Writing a novel about love must be one of the most risky endeavors that a writer can undertake Love is such a powerful emotion that it is easy for such novels slip into the realm of melodrama This takes place when humans are depicted in ways that step beyond reality It doesn t take much The call for a duel between rivals, the admission of love one too many times, or self pity that goes on and on are all gateways to the melodramatic Turgenev manages to write about love in On the Eve without Writing a novel about love must be one of the most risky endeavors that a writer can undertake Love is such a powerful emotion that it is easy for such novels slip into the realm of melodrama This takes place when humans are depicte...

    Ah, friendship, love, idealism in a word, Turgenev The eve in question is the start of the Crimean war The setting, however, is provincial Russia as usual in Turgenev s work and the characters are a small circle of close friends They re prone to earnest philosophical discussion There s a slightly complex romance that drives the plot, and as might be expected things ultimately don t turn out well for the lovers This is, after all, a Russian novel If that sounds a bit pat, then let m Ah, friendship, love, idealism in a word, Turgenev The eve in question is the start of the Crimean war The setting, however, is provincial Russia as usual in Turgenev s work and the characters are a small circle of close friends They re prone to earnest philosophical discussion There s a slightly complex romance that drives the plot, and as might be expected thin...

    Revisited Turgenev s short novels were second to Dostoyevsky for me, as far as Russians go and Russians go far Though I can see why Turgenev s despair of Russia as instanced here might have annoyed D Go to foreign parts Anyhow, never mind that I can also see why this one spoke closely to me as a girl Yelena is a serious girl who needs an ethical and active life, and finds a freedom fight to throw herself into Bulgaria from the Turks I was always impressed by Turgenev s young wome Revisited Turgenev s short novels were second to Dostoyevsky for me, as far as Russians go and Russians go far Though I can see why Turgenev s despair of Russia as instanced here might have annoyed D Go to foreign parts Anyhow, never mind that I can also see why this one spoke closely to me as a girl Yelena is a serious girl who needs an ethical and active life, and finds a freedom fight to throw herself into Bulgaria from the Turks I was always impressed by Turgenev s young women, whose engagement with the questions of the day he can put centre stage Bersenev is eminently likeable from page one Uvar Ivanovich grows on you Insarov, Yelena s Bulgarian hero, is astutely mocked by other participants and you can make up your own mind I didn t remember his descriptiveness, which I found of real beauty now I dare say I paid little attention then my idol D is famous for describing a tree, once, in his entire writings That may be an exaggeration T...
