Fathers And Sons

Set in nineteenth-century Russia, as the country was emerging from the painful legacy of serfdom, the theme of Fathers and Sons is universal: the ideological conflict between generations. At its centre are Bazarov ? a posturing nihilist who rejects all social institutions ? and Arkady, who has been taken in by Bazarov?s revolutionary ideas. When they return from university in St Petersburg to visit their parents, their modern cynicism collides with the liberal-minded and reformist nature of their elders. Emotional concerns complicate political principles, as always, while deepening and confusing alliances. Political and domestic, witty and stern, Fathers and Sons is a fresh and compassionate masterpiece that is considered to be Turgenev?s best novel.
