About the Author: Ivan Turgenev

Ivan Sergeyevich Turgenev (Cyrillic: Иван Тургенев) was a novelist, poet and dramatist, and now ranks as one of the towering figures of Russian literature. His major works include the short-story collection A Sportsman’s Sketches (1852) and the novels Rudin (1856), Home of the Gentry (1859), On the Eve (1860), and Fathers and Sons (1862). These works offer realistic, affectionate portrayals of the Russian peasantry and penetrating studies of the Russian intelligentsia who were attempting to move the country into a new age. His masterpiece, Fathers and Sons, is considered one of the greatest novels of the nineteenth century. Turgenev was a contemporary with Fyodor Dostoevsky and Leo Tolstoy. While these wrote about church and religion, Turgenev was more concerned with the movement toward social reform.

First published in 1859, On the Eve (of the Russian revolution) is another of Turgenev's lyrical idealist works. Ivan Sergeyevich Turgenev (1818-1883) defined the philosophy of nihilism and social change and yet managed to dwell on the bittersweet romanticism of Russia's fading nobility. This is a story of Elena, a young spiritually passionate woman with intense social principles, who abandons her family, home, and country, to follow Insarov, a romantic revolutionary rebel to his native Bulgaria. A classic novel of the courage of life choices on the brink of global change.
